    Class B CDL Program

    The objective of the Commercial Driver’s License Preparation Program is to provide our students with basic knowledge and skills in preparation for successfully completing the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Class B exam.  An individual successful completing this program should have experienced the ability to safely operate a bus.  

    CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION:  This section, consisting of 20 clock hours, is designed to provide the student with the information needed to obtain the requirements for a Class B CDL with a passenger endorsement, which includes Air Brakes, General Knowledge, Passenger and Pre-trip.  In addition, the student will be familiarized the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR).  The student will also be taught to how maintain a driver’s daily log.

    SKILL AREA INSTRUCTION:  This section, consisting of 10 clock hours of behind the wheel training and observation, is designed to provide the student with the ability to safely maneuver a bus unit into a park position.  This instruction includes straight-line backing, blind-side parallel parking and pre-trip inspection.

    OVER-THE-ROAD INSTRUCTION:  This section, consisting of 20 clock hours of behind the wheel training and observation, is designed to prepare the student to safely operate a bus unit in traffic.  The student will practice the proper method of approaching a corner and maneuvering around the corner without touching a stationary object.  The student will also learn how to use mirrors while driving both forward and backwards.  Each individual student will be required to maintain a driver’s daily log.  The student’s success will be measured daily and by a driver’s certification road test on the last day.  This certification ensures the student has met the course objective and is ready to test at the Department of Public Safety (DPS) for a Class B CDL with passenger endorsement.
