What is a Class A CDL ?

The Class A commercial driver's license (CDL) license allows you to operate a combination vehicle. A combination vehicle is most commonly associated with a tractor pulling a trailer, with a Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR), or the total weight of both the tractor and trailer, being 26,001 pounds or more.

Note – If a driver has a CDL A, they can drive a Class B or D (common car or SUV) vehicle.

A few of the vehicles you may be able to drive include:

  • Tractor-trailers
  • Truck and trailer combinations
  • Tractor-trailer buses
  • Tanker vehicles
  • Livestock carriers
  • Flatbeds

Careers that require a Class A CDL include:

  • Interstate Tractor Trailer Driver
  • Intrastate Tractor Trailer Driver

Choosing the right truck driver training program is a crucial first step in getting your Class A CDL and getting started in your new career. It’s important that the school you choose has an in-depth, hands-on CDL A training curriculum that will prepare you for an exciting career working with a major carrier.
