We have tested the peak current limit in the Fermilab Linac. The purpose is to find out what components of the linac can be used for the first stage of a proposed proton driver. For this application the linac must provide H- beam in excess of 5000 mA-microsecond. We have found that the present linac can accelerate beam with a peak current up to 85 mA with beam loss comparable to the present linac operations. The results of the test will be presented.
