Class B with Passenger Endorsement (Bus)
To practice driving for a Class B with Passenger Endorsement Commercial Drivers License (CDL), you first need to obtain a Commercial Drivers Instruction Permit (CDIP) with the Passenger Endorsement. You cannot practice driving a rig with just a regular drivers license.
Before studying, make sure you’re eligible to obtain a CDL. In most states you’ll need to meet the following requirements:
- You’re at least 18. If you want to drive interstate (across country, from state to state) you must be at least 21.
- You own a valid drivers license.
If eligible, you’ll need to pass a Commercial Drivers Instruction Permit test to obtain a CDIP with the Passenger Endorsement. This test involves no driving. It’s a written exam similar to the one you passed for your regular driver license. The difference are that the multiple choice questions only address commercial driving topics.
Class B with Passenger, students must have both their Learner’s Permit with the Passenger Endorsement and D.O.T. Physical prior to class start date.
United Tractor Trailer School, Inc., will supply a truck and sponsor for up to, and including, Three (3) Class B with Passenger Endorsement road test appointments with the Registry of Motor Vehicles. Each additional Class B with Passenger Endorsement appointment will be made at the cost of $100.00 to the student.
