Classes of Licenses:

The Federal standard requires States to issue a CDL to drivers according to the following license classifications:
 
Class A -- 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.
Class B -- 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.
Class C -- 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.
 
Endorsements and Restrictions:
 
Drivers who operate special types of CMVs (Commercial Motor Vehicles) also need to pass additional tests to obtain any of the following endorsements on their CDL:
  • H - Hazardous Materials (Knowledge Test only)
  • N - Tank Vehicle (Knowledge Test only)
  • P - Passenger (Knowledge and Skills Tests)
  • T - Double/Triple Trailers (Knowledge test only)
  • X - Combination of Tank Vehicle and Hazardous Materials
If a driver either fails the air brake component of the general knowledge test or performs the skills test in a vehicle not equipped with air brakes, the driver is issued an air brake restriction, restricting the driver from operating a CMV equipped with air brakes.
