This guide includes pre-trip inspections
for the various types of vehicles. Study and
practice the pre-trip that is appropriate
for the class of licence you are working
towards. The procedures in this book are
only guidelines to follow during a road test.
A vehicle may require different items to be
checked than those listed. You may not refer
to any notes during the pre-trip. 

Each pre-trip inspection and road test
is allowed a certain amount of time. You
should be able to complete the inspection
and road test within that time.

If a vehicle does not pass the pre-trip
inspection, or you do not successfully
complete the pre-trip inspection, the road
test will not proceed.

An applicant who holds a Graduated
Driver Licence (GDL) may not take a road
test for a licence classification higher than
a Class 5. 

NOTE: A road test will not be done in
a vehicle that is required to display
dangerous goods placards. 

Class 1 Road Test

 • An applicant must provide a tractor-trailer
   combination with three or
   more axles, and the trailer must be
   equipped with an air brake system to
   its foundation brakes. You must show
   proof of your air brake “Q” endorsement
   or a course completion certificate from
   an approved air brake organization.
   This includes drivers of farm vehicles
   registered as tractor-trailers.
• The examiner must see your road test
   permit. Permits can be purchased from 
  

   most Registry Agents.
• A Class 1 licence may not be obtained
   without the driver first having qualified
   for an air brake endorsement. The
   actual “Q” endorsement does not
   appear on the Class 1 licence. However,
   it must appear on all other licence
   classes that require the operation of air
   brake equipped vehicles.

Class 2 Road Test

• An applicant must provide a bus
   with a seating capacity exceeding 24
   passengers, excluding the driver. If the
   vehicle is equipped with air brakes,
   the applicant must have either an air
   brake “Q” endorsement or a course
   completion certificate from an approved
   air brake organization.
• The examiner must see your road test
   permit. Permits can be purchased from
   most Registry Agents.

Class 3 Road Test

• An applicant must provide a single
   motor vehicle that has three or more
   axles. Three axle recreational vehicles
   may not be used. If the vehicle provided
   for the road test is equipped with air
   brakes, the applicant must have either
   an air brake “Q” endorsement or a
   course completion certificate from an
   approved air brake organization.

NOTE: Drivers of single motor vehicles
registered as farm vehicles do not require
an air brake “Q” endorsement. 

• The examiner must see your road test
   permit. Permits can be purchased from
   most Registry Agents.
