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.

"Smith and Solomon is a great school. I had enrolled my husband and it has been a blessing. After taking his classes he has been employed and making nice money so we dont have to worry about daily struggles that concerned us before. Everyone was respectful helpful and very knowledgeable of what they were doing. My husband I are very pleased with the service we received and would recommend this school for quick and courteous services. I would also like to say a huge Thankyou to Mack, Mercedes, Bill and Kiki for all of your help it greatly appreciated and Keep it up!!!!"
