    And you still haven't answered the question. WHAT LETTER IS AIR BRAKE ENDORSEMENT?

    Read the manual and it does not appear as an endorsement but as a restriction. So going back to the original question, if you haven't passed a knowledge exam regarding air brakes whether over or under 26k, how can you operate that vehicle legally? Is this one of those RV type rules, like where people driving tamdem axle RV's don't need a CDL?

    Why would it apply to an under CDL vehicle.

    Were you dropped on your head or something when you were little?

    MarkO, do you suppose he thinks you need a tanker endorsment for an under CDL truck too. :laugh:

    If it is under CDL how do you take a test that you need a CDL for?

    My post wasn't a fact it was my opinion. 80 year olds driving RV's with two drive axles require no training, and no one regulates them. That was what I was getting at. Same with air brakes under CDL, does the driver have knowledge to pre trip the air system to make sure it is safe? Is it right in my opnion, no, but those are the rules.

    Have them pass a knowledge exam of air brake systems just like people with a CDL have to do to operate air brakes. Also in regards to one of your earlier posts, an x endorsement is required if hauling more than 119 gal of a flammable liquid in a non CMV.

    That is another dumb statement.
