The majority of Class 1, 2 & 3 vehicles require that a driver have an Airbrake Endorsement (Code 15).
For students upgrading their licence and taking driver training, you are required to take the 16-hour Air Brakes (Code 15) course. For drivers adding an air brake endorsement to an existing licence, they must take the 20-hour course.
