5th Wheel RV Trailers & Heavy Trailer Endorsement

The endorsement 20 for heavy trailers, and endorsement code 07 for 5th wheel trailers, are now required for trailers that weigh over 4600 kilograms (10,000 lbs). This course provides the training needed to prepare for the endorsement codes 20 and 07 ICBC road test. A licensed instructor delivers individualized training using hands-on practice and demonstrations. Students are taught vehicle inspection and skills required for safe operation of a vehicle while pulling a heavy trailer or 5th wheel trailer. This training program requires the student to supply their own vehicle and trailer that weighs a minimum of 4600 kilograms (10,000 lbs) for the training and the ICBC road test.
