America Truck Driving School offers every combination of trucking licensing possible. If the license exists, we cover it. More than that, we help you every step of the way, from the DOT physical and written test to the DMV driving test. Our most commonly requested licenses include:
Commercial Class B (with and without passenger endorsement): This license allows you to drive buses, farm vehicles, triple axle vehicles over 6,000 pounds, and vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,000 pounds or more. With a commercial class B license, you can tow a vehicle below 10,000 pounds GVWR.
Commercial Class A (with and without passenger endorsement): This is the most flexible commercial license available, which allows you to drive all vehicles covered in classes B and C. This also allows you to tow vehicles with a GVWR of 10,000 pounds or more.
