Commerical Driver's License

There are three types of commercial driver's licenses: Class A, B and C
Drivers of light vehicles -- passenger cars and pick up trucks -- will be issued an operator's license.

Class A -- Combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GVWR) over 26,000 pounds, provided the GVWR of the vehicle(s) being towed is greater than 10,000 pounds. A driver with a Class A license will be able to drive Class A, B and C commercial vehicles with proper endorsements when required.

Class B -- Single vehicles with a GVWR over 26,000 pounds, or any such vehicle towing a vehicle under 10,000 GVWR. A driver with a Class B license will be able to drive Class B and C commercial vehicles with proper endorsements when required.

Class C -- Vehicles with a GVWR less than 26,001 pounds. Class C is strictly for vehicles designed to carry 16 or more people or carry hazardous materials in quantities large enough to require a placard. A Class C license holder will be able to drive Class C commercial vehicles only.
