A valid “Z” Air Brake Endorsement is required to operate any vehicle equipped with air brakes in the province of Ontario. This includes some medium-duty vehicles, such as motor homes and other RV’S, and all heavy-duty vehicles. The Air Brake system operates with an air compressor, to force compressed air through air lines which apply pressure to brake pads to stop a vehicle. It is important to understand how it compares to other vehicle braking systems.
Zavcor Training Academy is authorized by the MTO through the TTSAO (Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario) to conduct this course.
Students will learn how the system works, how to use it, what happens when it is not working properly and how to identify when it may not be working properly.
During the 12 hour training program, students will complete a written and practical test on-site.
Once you have successfully completed the endorsement course, you will receive a referral envelope. Present this envelope to a DriveTest Centre, after 5 days but within 6 months, to add the Z endorsement to your licence. If you are doing a road test in a vehicle equipped with air brakes you must have the Z endorsement on your licence at the time of testing.
