Air Brake Courses
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.
