getting a CDL license

To get started, 1st n MOST importantly, you have to have a CDL License (Commercial drivers license). There are different types too but the main ones ill talk briefly about are CDL/A and CDL/B.

CDL-B lets you drive most if not all STRAIGHT vehicles bigger than a regular car. like this pic below for example

now this is a random straight truck pic but like i said, anything from those box trucks u see around to the BIG long tour buses etc….anything straight, a B license is required.

Now for anything with moving parts like a tractor trailer, you need an A license. quick note, “TRACTOR TRAILER”…its two things.. the tractor is the machine that PULLS the trailer. the trailer is the BIG box in the back with the cargo/load etc…

Now to GET the permits (like a drivers permit) you need to take ALOT of testsor not alot but long tests. If you took one test for a drivers permit, for an A-class permit, you take about…about…3 of them. General knowledge, combination (for tractor n trailer) and air brakes. wont go much more into this because its boring and LONG process id care not to remember lol

SO after that once you’ve passed all your tests, like anything else, you go to the road test…most people fail a few times….then eventually you pass and thats it…you’re a “trucker”…….or are you.
