The requirement from DMV for NEW INSTRUCTORS to have their air brake endorsement has been dropped.

This was information given out at the recertification class this summer, and has been a topic of discussion at COSTA’s safety council and board meetings.

Please see official notification below:

Dear Master Instructors,

After much discussion the decision has been made to drop the policy that new instructors must have no airbrake restriction in order to apply.

Perhaps in the future we will find a way to work this into the program but we will not be making the change this year.
