How To Renew Your Air Brake (Z) Endorsement Licence

As of September 1, 2023, MTO is providing a more flexible, modernized option for drivers to renew air brake endorsements.


To renew your air brake endorsement you must now complete the Air Brakes Refresher Training module online before going to a DriveTest centre to renew your air brakes (z) endorsement. This online module was developed in response to industry feedback and eliminates the need to complete a knowledge test at a DriveTest centre at the time of renewal.

When you register for the online training module, you’ll be asked to provide your name and email address. You must use your full name as it appears on your driver’s licence so that DriveTest staff can verify that the information on your certificate matches the information on your driver’s licence.

After completing the module online, you will need to show your certificate of completion to staff at a DriveTest centre, to proceed with your renewal.
