A brake test, also known as a brake check, occurs when a driver deliberately brakes very hard in front of another driver who is tailgating, causing the second driver to swerve or otherwise react quickly to avoid an accident.
Often, a brake check also refers to simply pressing the brakes hard enough to activate the brake lights, signaling to the other driver that an increased space cushion is needed.

Each time you drive a vehicle with air brakes, you must make sure that there are no defects.
An air brake or, more formally, a compressed air brake system, is a type of friction brake for vehicles in which compressed air pressing on a piston is used to apply the pressure to the brake pad needed to stop the vehicle. Air brakes are used in large heavy vehicles, particularly those having multiple trailers which must be linked into the brake system, such as trucks, buses, trailers, and semi-trailers, in addition to their use in railroad trains.
