Air Brake Renewal Knowledge Test and Learning Modules

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is proposing to introduce a digital learning module for air brake holders that may be completed as an alternative to the knowledge test currently required at time of renewal. The module can be accessed by drivers at any time, from any location, and will take about 30 minutes to complete. The learning module will be designed specifically for drivers and will focus on operational and practical knowledge a driver should have to operate a vehicle with air brakes. Drivers will have the option to complete either the air brake learning module or the current air brake knowledge test; both will satisfy the knowledge renewal requirement.
