What You Can Learn at a CDL School

A Class A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is required by all truck drivers who are operating a certain sized truck across state lines. With a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds or a truck with a trailer GVWR of 10,001 or more pounds, a Class A CDL license is mandatory by law. A CDL school not only teaches how to drive a commercial vehicle but also the rules and regulations surrounding each class and type of vehicle you have access to. 

A Class A CDL is required if you wish to operate:

  • Tanker vehicles
  • Livestock carriers
  • Dump trucks
  • Passenger vans

A CDL school is especially important if you’re looking to gain special endorsements to drive other vehicles, such as: 

  • Hazmat vehicles
  • Passenger vans
  • Busses

Graduating from a CDL school can be one of the most important aspects of your life. Establishing yourself as a commercial driver opens the doors to countless opportunities in an industry with an ever-growing demand.
