It only says CDL operator on my license as it does with all Maine licenses.
Why don't you take the presented opportunity to prove him wrong if you don't think is right?

Right or wrong against what? The only comment he made was about air brakes under 26k. No where in the manual does it specify needing an endorsement for air brakes under 26k, but it also doesn't state not needing an endorsement under 26k.

Also testing is different from state to state. In Maine you can take your test with a one ton and 7 ton trailer and then drive a tractor trailer, while in NH if you did this you would be restricted from using a trailer with a kingpin.

This is a rather ironic post from you who claims to have an air brake endorsement when no such endorsement exists.

Now are you going to show your license like you offered? I'd settle for you telling what letter represents the "air brake endorsement" on your license.

Tough to specify needing something that doesn't exist.

Cargo securement is section 3 in the manual and is covered under general knowledge. Section five contains air brake and is covered under a seperate test, of you failed the air brake section you are restricted for trucks/trailers using air brakes. Maybe the testing has changed since 04 when I took my test. On a side note, did your parents neglect you or something, or were you bullied in school?
