INFORMATION ON BRAKE ADJUSTER LICENSES
There are three classes of Brake Adjuster licenses. Only one class of Brake Adjuster license may be held at one time
(check only one box on this application). If you wish to apply for Lamp and Brake Adjuster licenses at the same time, two
applications must be submitted. Brake and Lamp Adjuster licenses may be held independently of each other.
The classes are:
Brake Class A: May test, inspect, repair, and certify the braking system on all vehicles, including motorcycles.
Brake Class B: May test, inspect, adjust, repair, and certify the braking systems on trucks 10,000 pounds
GVWR and over. This class may also inspect, adjust, repair, and certify the braking system
on all trailers.
Brake Class C: May test, inspect, adjust, repair, and certify the braking systems on vehicles under 10,000
pounds GVWR, trailers without air brakes, and motorcycles.
Licensed Adjusters may conduct inspections that are required for the issuance of Brake Certicates of Adjustment, and
also certify that corrections have been made when an enforcement document has been issued for brake system defects.
These licenses are not required to perform general repairs on brake systems.
NOTE: Technicians must pass an exam every four years to remain licensed. The license expiration dates will be
adjusted so that they expire in the month of the technician’s birthday. Therefore, the license you receive during
the adjustment period will be valid from 37 to 48 months.

examination.
