Are you looking for a well-founded job in the trucking industry? Obtaining a Class B CDL is your ticket to getting there faster. With the global market for freight trucking set to expand to a whopping $ 2.7 trillion in the next 5 years, you are well on your way to career success. The United States market share alone accounts for $ 514.7 billion in 2021.

These are undeniably excellent prospects for aspiring truck drivers regardless of the type of truck you intend to operate. Part of the reason for this tremendous growth is because truckers are an integral part of economic growth. Trucking remains the primary source of goods delivery, and the role is not about to expire soon.

Being a major economic driving force, the trucking industry's demand for qualified commercial drivers is steadily on the rise. That means you are right on track by applying for that Class B CDL. It is one of the qualifying elements towards securing a stable job as a truck driver.

Furthermore, as more truck drivers reach retirement age, there is an urgent need for fresh drivers to fill the void. You could be one of them. Simply start preparing for your Class B CDL application by allowing us to help you get the ball rolling.

What are the requirements for a Class B license?

To apply for and obtain a Class B CDL, an applicant should:

  • Possess a non-commercial driver's license. Holding a non-commercial driver's license is a way to demonstrate your knowledge of traffic laws as well as your ability to drive a standard motor vehicle.
  • Hold a high school diploma. A minimum education requirement of a high school diploma is needed to apply for a CDL and operate a commercial vehicle.
  • Have a clean driving record. If you have a driving record with little to no incidents, you stand a better chance of enhancing your qualifications while applying for your Class B CDL. It implies that you are more inclined toward safe driving habits and are likely to transfer those habits into your aspiring career as a commercial driver.
  • Satisfy age requirements. Operating a Class B commercial vehicle requires the driver to have attained a minimum age of 21 years.
  • Submit to a medical screening. This examination helps ensure the safety of CDL holders and fellow road users. The medical exam checks for certain pre-existing medical conditions that might impair your ability as a driver to operate a commercial vehicle safely.
