Which type of CDL license do I need?
Since April of 1992, all drivers have been required to have a CDL in order to drive a Commercial Motor Vehicle. Tractor-trailers require advanced skills and knowledge above and beyond those required to drive a car or other lightweight vehicle.
- Class A CDL License: The Class A is needed to operate any combination of vehicles with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds provided the GVWR of the vehicle(s) being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
- Vehicles requiring a Class A CDL license are primarily tractor-trailers.
- Class B CDL License: The Class B is needed to operate any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or less pounds or any such vehicle towing a vehicle not in excess of 10,000 pounds. Vehicles requiring a Class B CDL license may include:
- Cars with trailers, buses (regardless of size), passenger vans and motorhomes
- Standard-sized dump trucks, tow trucks, cement mixers and garbage trucks
- Delivery trucks and utility trucks
- Any single vehicle with GVWR of 26,001 pounds or more that is not towing an excess of 10,000 pounds GVWR
How do I get my Commercial Driver's License?
States are able to issue a CDL license only after a written and driving test have been given by the state or approved testing facility.
It's important to train for your CDL exam for two reasons:
- The test itself can be extremely difficult to pass without the proper training.
- Many carriers won't hire a candidate without proper training, even if you've passed the CDL exam.
