Operating from our Burnaby location, North Shore Driving School offers a comprehensive air brake course to students from Surrey, Abbotsford, and the Greater Vancouver area. We are fully qualified to teach students the ins and outs of safely maneuvering air brake-operated vehicles. In order to earn an air brake certificate, a student must first successfully complete a 16-hour certified class, after which they are issued with their certificate. After receipt of said certificate, students can then take the computer test at a designated ICBC driver service centre. The process ensures that all drivers operating a commercial vehicle which uses air brake technology, are thoroughly informed and are able to act in the best interests of overall road safety. 


Throughout British Columbia, in order to gain Air Brake Certification, it is necessary to learn how to operate vehicles that utilize an air brake system. North Shore Driving School’s government-certified instructors provide thorough training, teaching you how to safely maneuver a commercial vehicle, including how to handle matters like parking and driving in traffic. Our program provides in-depth lessons related to the control of air brake-operated vehicles, as well as pre-trip requirements, and the road test.
