Class B Driver's License and Endorsements Needed for a CDL Class B License
All Candidates for the Class B CDL license must complete the following requirements:
- You must pass a General Knowledge exam. This is required for any type of CDL license.
- You must pass the Air Brakes test.
- You must pass the Pre-trip inspection.
Vehicle weight determines the class of a Commercial Drivers License. There are three class categories: A, B, and c. For the Class B CDL Test, candidates must take the General Knowledge test (which are required for all CDL licenses) plus any additional endorsement tests needed for the Class B CDL License. The CDL candidate must also complete an actual driving test in the vehicle that falls into the Class B weight class.
Federal law requires that all states issue a CDL to drivers according to license classifications. Here are the Class designations from the Federal Government:
- Class A License - 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. For example, a Fuel Truck, a Cargo Truck (Semi), or Doubles.
- Class B License - Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing a vehicle not in excess of 10,000 pounds GVWR. For example, a Fire Truck, a Dump Truck, a Garbage Truck, or a Cement Mixer Truck.
- Class C License - Any single vehicle, or combination of vehicles, that does not meet the definition of Class A or Class B, but is either designed to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver, or is placarded for hazardous materials. For example, a School Bus or a Passenger Bus.
