Required Endorsements for CDL - Class A,B, and C Driver's License
The class of the Commercial Drivers License, A, B or C refers to the weight of the vehicle. When a person gets a CDL, they take the General Knowledge test (required for any CDL) and the tests for any endorsements they want or need for that license class. The driver will take the actual driving test in the vehicle that falls into the weight class for the vehicle they will be driving.
The federal standard requires states to issue a CDL to drivers according to license classifications. Here are the Class designations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration:
Class A License - 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 License - 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 License - 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.
