Commercial Truck Driver Training Standard (Class A)
WHAT IS THIS LICENSE GOOD FOR?
“AZ” license holders are qualified to drive a motor vehicle and towed vehicles where the towed vehicles exceed a total gross weight of 4,600 kilograms (10,000 lbs.). This also includes straight trucks, dump trucks, garbage trucks and vans should they wish. Job placement assistance is provided with this course. Adding an optional “C” endorsement to this license permits the holder to drive coaches (buses) and large (up to 24) passenger vans.
