You're making progress, and that's commendable. In the trucking world, the Air Brake endorsement is not just a certificate—it's a testament to your dedication to road safety and skill. This 50-question practice test will further refine your understanding of air brake systems as outlined in the 2024 Manitoba commercial driver's manual. Each question is crafted to cover essential aspects of air brakes, and you'll find detailed explanations to fortify your learning. Keep it up; you're well on your way to mastery.

List of questions (classic view)

  1. What does a service brake chamber typically not contain?
  2. Who has the necessary qualifications to adjust automatic slack adjusters?
  3. How do spring brake chambers typically apply the brakes?
  4. What happens if stroke surpasses the adjustment limits of a brake chamber?
  5. What holds together most commercial vehicles' brake chambers?
  6. To release the spring brakes, the spring brake chamber must receive the requisite air pressure to compress the spring. At what psi is this typically accomplished?
  7. What is an alternate term for the action of compressing the spring?
  8. What are the two types of air brake chambers?
  9. Compressed air can exhaust at all these places EXCEPT
  10. Is it acceptable for the pushrod stroke to go beyond the adjustment limit?
  11. Why is it possible to continue driving even when the spring brakes are applied?
  12. What results when you press the brake pedal, and compressed air inflates the service brake chamber?
  13. What does 'stroke length' typically refer to?
  14. What is the component that links the brake chamber's pushrod to the brake assembly?
  15. Under which circumstances are spring brakes designed to activate?
  16. Compressed air is converted into...?
  17. At what psi does the spring brake control valve react due to a decrease in air brake system pressure?
  18. What equipment is used on service and supply lines to avoid air leakages when they are not being used?
  19. Assuming red is reserved for the supply line according to the colour-coding adopted during manufacturing of trailer couplers, what colour represents the service line?
  20. How do you control the trailer supply valve to provide air to the trailer?

  33. The trailer supply valve closes automatically when the air pressure in the trailer supply line falls to approximately how many psi?
  34. What is the most prevalent type of foundation brake found on commercial vehicles with air brake systems?
  35. What is the main function of trailer couplers or 'gladhands'?
  36. What reduces the effectiveness of both the service brakes and spring brakes to halt or hold a vehicle?
  37. Which of the following are types of foundation brakes?
  38. Most towing vehicles are equipped with 'dead end' or 'dummy' couplers. What is their purpose?
  39. What is one way to prevent accidentally cross-connecting the lines?
  40. What is the primary role of the service line?
  41. Which type of chamber is used on some buses and motor coaches, instead of a large spring in the brake chamber?
