What is a CDL?

A Commercial Driver License (CDL) is required for all drivers operating large commercial motor vehicles. By carrying a CDL, you prove that you have been trained and tested and that you are qualified to operate such vehicles.

WHAT TYPES OF CDL CAN I GET?

Applicants may qualify for three basic classes of CDL:

Class A
A Class A CDL permits the holder to operate vehicles with a weight in excess of 26,001 pounds, with an excess of 10,000 pounds towed.

Class B
A Class B CDL permits the holder to operate vehicles with a weight in excess of 26,001 pounds, with less than 10,000 pounds towed. A Class B also allows the holder to transport 24 passengers or more, driver included.

Class C
A Class C CDL permits the holder to operate vehicles that do not fall under Class A or B designations, such as transport vehicles carrying 16 to 23 passengers, including the driver. Class C CDL holders may also transport hazardous materials.
