What do I need to know to get started?

How do I register for my training?

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. It’s important that you 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, in order to proceed with your renewal. 

How do I verify my identity?

In order to access the Ministry of Transportation’s Air Brakes Refresher Training through SkillsPass, you are required verify your identity using an AI-powered identity verification solution called Veriff. You will need to take a photo of yourself and of your driver’s licence. This can be completed on a device and platform of your choice, as Veriff supports iOS, Android, and mobile web.

By registering for this training, you are asserting that you are the driver identified on the licence. Your certificate will be invalid if you make a false representation or attempt to alter the certificate in any way. Your certificate will have a QR code that can be used to validate your registration and completion information.

How is my personal information used?

Information is collected under the authority of the Highway Traffic Act and is used to evaluate the eligibility of the applicant renewing their air brake endorsement. If you have any questions about the collection and use of your personal information required to register for this learning module, please call ServiceOntario at 416-326-1234 or 1-800-267-8097 (TTY 416-325-3408 or 1-800-268-7095) or write to the Supervisor, Ministry of Transportation, Licensing Administration and Support Office, 87 Sir William Hearst Ave, Toronto ON M3M 0B4. Direct general inquires to ServiceOntario at 416-235-2999, 1-800-387-3445 or visit

What if I'm unable to complete my training online?

If you’re unable to complete the Air Brakes Refresher Training online, please visit The Official Air Brake Handbook |, Get a truck driver’s licence | or Get a bus driver’s licence | for further information on how to proceed with renewing your air brake endorsement.
