When preparing to test for your CDL, there are numerous endorsements you can consider adding to it. One such endorsement you can earn is one to operate passenger vehicles. With this endorsement, you’ll be certified to operate a vehicle carrying 16 or more passengers, including yourself.
The passenger endorsement is one of the three types of endorsements you can have featured on your commercial learner’s permit (CLP). Having the passenger endorsements on your CLP can go a long way toward your earning a “P” on your CDL when it’s time to take the test. CLP endorsements allow you to gain experience operating a vehicle under the watchful eye of an instructor without the pressure of passengers, enabling you to build your confidence prior to testing.
When training to pursue your CDL and any accompanying endorsements, it’s important for you to learn, practice and test using the same kind of vehicle that you’re applying to be licensed to operate. Such consistency will also help you avoid any pitfalls caused by certain restrictions when testing to earn your CDL.
Such as when taking any other version of a CDL exam, be sure to arrive with a driver’s license, Social Security card and records of your medical and vision tests. These documents are typically required to ensure you’re physically capable to do the job.
