Class B CDL Test
You’ve had your commercial learner’s permit for a little while now and you’re ready to make the leap to the ranks of a professional driver. Elevate your career by taking and passing the Class B CDL test to earn your license. A Class B CDL allows you to drive vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,001 pounds or more hauling a trailer weighing up to 10,000 pounds. These vehicles include straight trucks, delivery trucks, tourist buses and segmented buses.
The Class B CDL Test is a three part skills test. This consists of: pre-trip inspection, basic maneuverability and road test – which involves the vehicle and practical application of techniques you learned while holding your permit.
Depending on the vehicle you’ll be driving, you will be tested to earn endorsements that require passing additional testing components, such as one for carrying passengers. Different endorsements require different degrees of testing.
In order to be eligible for a Class B CDL, you must be at least 18 years of age, pass a physical examination and a vision test. On your exam day, be sure to bring a valid form of ID, your Social Security card and documentation that you passed the vision and medical tests.
In the event of failing part of the skills test, you will have to wait one week to retest.
