Air Brake Courses


Operating from our Burnaby location, North Shore Driving School offers a comprehensive air brake course. Easily accessible to students from Abbotsford, Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey, North Shore and throughout Greater Vancouver, we are fully qualified to teach students the ins and outs of controlling air brake-operated vehicles. To earn an air brake certificate in Burnaby or the Lower Mainland, a student must first complete a 16-hour certified air brake course. Upon completion, students are issued an air brake certificate, after which they can then take a computer test at a designated ICBC driver service centre.
