Does a Class A CDL automatically include Air Brakes?

I passed my Class A CDL test yesterday. I just noticed on the temporary license paper that it says endorsments-none. But I took it on an air brake truck and trailer and did all the air brake tests! Did I get screwed?

You will need to take a written airbrakes test and then a road test in a airbrake truck and trailer.

Yes I read it. My answer should've been more complete but was typing on my phone. If your test included the written airbrake portion and you tested on the truck and trailer that you have talked about recently then you should be good to go. I would confirm this answer with you local DMV. When I took mine years ago the test was broken down into 7 parts and you just tested on what you needed, in your case that would be General Knowledge, Air Brakes, and Combination Vehical. Its been almost 10 years that I've been through it so things most likely have changed.

Airbrakes is not an endorsement, it's a restriction.

ny is different. air brake is a restriction. dmv site says that ny has 5 endorsments tank, hazmat, doubles, passengers, and school. There is a seperate test for tow truck also. So if I have a class A with only restriction being a truck trailer combination. Then I cant drive tractor/trailer but I should be good for air brake

NY isn't different here. All the states are the same.

Correct. Nothing will show up under endorsements for air brakes. But you will only have the no tractor trailer or something along that lines under restrictions. Provided you pass both written and verbal tests.

That's how Mass. is at least. I have no restrictions and a tanker endorsement.
