Thanks to the opinions of the truck driving community and lobbying efforts by the OTA, the Ministry is clearly listening to what truck drivers and the industry want on this issue. To help ensure the new air brake modules become a reality, tell them you support this change, just click the button!
Thanks to the many voices in the trucking industry and efforts by the Ontario Trucking Association, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation is proposing changes to how truck drivers renew their air brake endorsement (Z) on their commercial driver’s licence. If the proposal passes, there will be more flexible, modernized options for drivers to renew air brake endorsements on existing licences without having to take the written knowledge test.
MTO is proposing that air brake learning modules be introduced as an additional alternative to the air brake renewal knowledge test, which is viewed by some in the driving community to be somewhat redundant, unnecessary, and confusing. The newly proposed learning modules can be taken online, at the driver’s convenience, and do not contain a pass/fail criteria.
