Frequently Asked Questions
*Please always refer to your State Specific CDL Manual for all Rules and Regulations pertaining to Commercial Licenses*
What is the difference between Class A and Class B CDL?
A Class B CDL is tailored for operating single vehicles that do not tow a trailer (or tow a trailer weighing less than 10,000 pounds). It covers vehicles like large buses (including city buses), segmented buses, box trucks, and dump trucks. The key difference lies in the vehicle's size and the absence of a heavy trailer component, which is a hallmark of Class A vehicles.
What type of vehicles are covered under Class B CDL?
With a Class B CDL, you're qualified to operate straight trucks, large passenger buses (including school buses, if you have the appropriate endorsements), segmented buses, box trucks like those used for furniture and appliance delivery, and smaller dump trucks. It's ideal for those looking to drive vehicles for city transit, school districts, or local delivery services.
What additional endorsements might be beneficial for Class B CDL holders?
Class B CDL holders often benefit from obtaining endorsements like Passenger (P), which allows them to drive buses, or School Bus (S), if they plan to drive school buses. These endorsements expand employment opportunities and versatility in the type of vehicles that can be operated.
How long does the ELDT Class B course take?
There is no time requirement for the course. Some individuals are able to finish the course in one day while others are able to finish the course in a few days. It is dependent on the amount of time you have to dedicate to the course to complete it.
