When do I need a CDL in Wyoming?
If you live in Wyoming and drive a Class A, B, or C commercial vehicle, you must possess a CDL. Each of these license types provide different driving privileges, which are outlined below:
- Class A License - This classification applies to "combination" vehicles with a Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) exceeding 26,000 pounds, provided that the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed exceeds 10,000 pounds. If the towed vehicle is less than 10,000 pounds, a Class B license can be used.
- Class B License - The Class B license covers both single and combination vehicles with a weight exceeding 26,000 pounds. Vehicles in tow, however, cannot exceed 10,000 pounds. If the towed vehicle does exceed 10,000 pounds, a Class A license is required.
- Class C License - If a vehicle is designed to transport 16 or more passengers (including the driver), marked for hazardous materials, or does not meet the criteria for Class A or B licenses as outlined above, it will fall under this classification.
Knowledge and Skills Tests
When you pass the required knowledge test(s), you can take the CDL skills tests. The three types of general skills tests that you will be required to pass are:
- Pre-trip Vehicle Inspection - Here you will be tested to determine whether your vehicle is safe to drive. You will then have to explain to the examiner as to why you came to your conclusions.
- Basic Vehicle Control - This segment will require you to move your vehicle forward and backward, as well as turn it within a defined area.
- On-road Test - During the on-road test segment, you must exhibit your skill in driving in several different traffic situations. Ultimately, this is probably the most important of the three skills examinations.
