Going into Canada with air brakes

Hi everyone,
I have a diesel class A (Itasca Solei 34t) and am planning a trip to Canada this month from Texas. Here I do not need an air brake endorsement on my drivers license because I'm less than 26000 gvwr. A relative living in Canada said he had to take an air brake class and write an exam before he was allowed to drive a pusher there. Any body residing in USA ever have an issue crossing the border without some special endorsements?
Many thanks
Bob

IMO you should be legal in Canada if you are legal where your drivers license it issued.

I've been to Canada many times and no one asked about having an endorsement. I think it is only required to get a Canadian License.

Air Brakes

Agree with Gordon and John

Was up in BC last week and the subject didn't come up when I crossed the border. They didn't even ask for my driver's license, just my passports.

Crossed into Canada several times and that has not been an issue and I haven't every heard of it being a problem.

I believe this is how it is worked. Your vehicle and licensing must be up to standards for where it was issued. Several provinces in Canada require residents to plate both front and rear, but allow single plated vehicles through their jurisdictions without cause.

Thank you for your quick replies

Thank you all for your quick responses. I couldn't fathom there would be a problem crossing into Canada and I appreciate your comments.
Regards Bob

There will be some issues with guns coming into Canada.

Air brakes are no problem but, As Gordon says, bringing guns will be a problem.

The OP didn't even question guns so why bring it up?

Good question. Because if you are not aware of it you could be disappointed when you try to cross the border. It seemed to be the neighborly thing to do.
