Class A, B or C CDL

In order to drive certain types of large commercial vehicles in the United States, the driver must hold a Commercial Drivers License (CDL). Depending on the type of vehicle that you are looking to operate and what you intend to haul, you will either need to obtain a Class A or Class B CDL.

CLASS A

A Class A CDL is considered the most universal commercial driver’s license because it will allow you to drive (almost) any Class A, Class B, or Class C commercial vehicle.

With a Class A CDL, drivers can operate vehicles with a gross combination weight rating of 26,001 pounds or more, with a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds or more.

CLASS A VEHICLES:

  • Tractor-trailers — your typical semi, big rig, or 18-wheeler
  • Truck and trailer combinations — double and triple trailers
  • Tanker Vehicles
  • Flatbed Vehicles

VEHICLES THAT REQUIRE SPECIAL ENDORSEMENTS

In order to operate Class C and some Class B vehicles, written tests and additional road skill tests will need to be completed. With the proper endorsements, a Class B CDL is the highest classification needed in order to operate a passenger bus, school bus, and HazMat truck.
