Air brake
endorsement (Q)

When a person successfully completes
an approved Alberta air brake course
through an authorized agency, an air brake
endorsement (the letter Q) will be placed
on that driverís driverís licence, for any
licence class other than Class 1.

†Note:†Drivers with a Class 1 driverís
†licence automatically have an air brake
†endorsement although it will not appear
†on the driverís licence. A Class 1†
†driver's licence cannot be obtained
†without the holder first having
†successfully completed an approved air
†brake course. Therefore, the air brake
†endorsement is implied with the Class 1†
†driver's licence.

An air brake endorsement is required
for drivers of vehicles with:
ē an air-only braking system, or
ē a combination of air and hydraulic
†† braking system

For information on taking an approved air
brake course, please refer to our web site:
