Air brake equipped farm vehicles

In Alberta, you are not required to hold
an air brake endorsement if operating a
single motor vehicle registered as a farm
vehicle. However, you do need an air
brake endorsement if driving a farm vehicle
combination that requires the driver to

hold a Class 1 driver’s licence. When
applying for a Class 1 driver’s licence,
you will need to show proof of your air
brake qualifications, even if the vehicle
you will be driving is registered as a
farm vehicle.
