Frequently Asked Questions

What is involved in a day at Air brake Endorsement?

We will start off with a 6 hour theory session, followed by an Air Brake Theory Examination.

Upon successful completion of the Examination, the student will be given a practical demonstration of inspection and testing the air system, and adjusting the slack adjusters.

This will be followed by student practice and successful demonstration by the student to the satisfaction of the instructor. With smaller classes, this process can usually be accomplished the same day. With larger classes, there may be another day scheduled to practice and perform the air brake practical.

Ultimately the student should achieve his certificate, and then proceed to the registry to register the certificate on his license as a “Q” endorsement.

What if I loose my Air brake Certificate?

If you loose your Air Brake Certificate, we can issue you a new one, but we need the following:

  • Full Name
  • Driver’s License Number
  • Phone Number
  • Who paid for the course
  • When the course was taken
  • Where the course was
  • Credit Card Number with expiration date and CVV Number

Email all of the information above to Lisa Demskie at lisa@capilanotrucktraining.com. It takes approximately 2 weeks to obtain a new certificate if all the information is provided correctly.

What issues may arise at the registry when making transactions there?

Be aware that if you have any outstanding fines, tickets, appearance notices, or outstanding Maintenance Payments, you will not be able to perform any transactions at a Registry until these issues are paid or attended to.

These kinds of issues will prevent your completion of driver training or upgrade. *
