Class 1 MELT implementation

This past summer, ICBC announced upcoming changes to its Class 1 and air brake knowledge tests to support B.C.’s Class 1 Mandatory Entry-Level Training (MELT) requirement.

Roadmasters Safety Group courses have adapted to the NEW changes to air brake training requirements in B.C.

Single-unit air brake course

On Monday, October 18, 2021, ICBC will replace the existing 16 hour air brake course and 20 hour air brake certification program with a new training stream for drivers of single-unit air brake equipped vehicles. These changes align with the new single-unit air brake knowledge test that better targets the vehicles these drivers will be operating.

The change applies to those with a Class 2, 3, 4 or 5/7 driver’s licence who are applying for an air brake endorsement.

Applicants for an air brake endorsement to operate a single-unit vehicle (e.g., buses) must complete the new 7 hour air brake theory course before being issued an air brake course card to take the new single-unit air brake knowledge test.

A new 11 hour single-unit air brake certification program is replacing the current 20 hour certification program. Air brake certification facilities will be required to deliver a new 7 hour air brake theory course, as well as 4 hours of practical air brake training, totaling 11 hours.

Only Class 1 driver training schools approved to deliver the Class 1 MELT course may provide air brake theory and practical training to a Class 1 driver’s licence applicant, as part of the Class 1 MELT course.  for more details on Class 1 go to; Driver training news (icbc.com)
