HEAVY TRAILER ENDORSEMENT (CODE 20)

 

Some jobs mean being able to haul or tow trailers that are substantially larger and heavier than your standard utility trailer.

Towing a trailer with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW)  in excess of 4,600 kilograms requires drivers to upgrade their current license to include a code 20 heavy trailer endorsement. A code 20 endorsement allows drivers to tow trailers of any weight appropriate for the tow vehicle, provided that neither the trailer or tow vehicle are equipped with air brakes. Should your trailer or vehicle have air brakes, you will need to upgrade to a class 1 licence with an Air Brake Endorsement (code 15).

The code 20 endorsement training prepares drivers for the specific handling and braking techniques required to tow such a heavy cargo load, associated with horse trailers, boat trailers, and heavy-duty utility trailers. A House Trailer Endorsement (code 7) is required for towed recreational vehicles, like 5th wheels and “toy” trailers.

 

HOW TO GET A HEAVY TRAILER ENDORSEMENT

To be eligible to add a Heavy Trailer Endorsement (code 20) to your licence, you will first need to have a class 4 or class 5 licence. Then, to successfully achieve your code 20, you will be required to pass a class 3 knowledge test at ICBC. You will also need to meet vision and medical standards, and then pass a practical road test with your truck and trailer at ICBC.

Valley Driving School offers comprehensive one-on-one driver training to cover the required aspects of driving, backing up, coupling, uncoupling, and pre-trip checks for your vehicle and heavy trailer prior to your ICBC road test. 

Let our knowledgeable Instructors help prepare you for your ICBC code 20 road test!

 “Thank you so much for your professional approach to driver training.  I missed learning to drive in my teenage years and needed to quickly learn the rules of the road in order to pass my road test for a new job.  

The kind of service I received from Valley driving was excellent and of high caliber.  I did the entire program and all of it was useful to helping me pass my exam.  My experience with my instructor is to be commended immensely.  He was patient and helpful as I learned to drive, and without him I likely would not have passed that road test!  I'm thoroughly impressed by Valley Driving as a business and would like all of you to know that I appreciate how well each of you do your work.  Thanks!”
