Class C Commercial Driver License Local Truck Driving Jobs
Regional truck driving jobs may use lighter vehicles. Long haul truckers operating tractor trailers must have a class A license. You could possibly get a class B or a class C license for local jobs. With a class B commercial license you can use straight trucks with no trailers. This includes dump trucks, large passenger buses, garbage trucks, delivery trucks, food trucks and cement mixers.
The class C commercial license allows using smaller vehicles that do not fit classes A or B. This includes vehicles made to carry less than 24 passengers, including the driver. Class C is good for small transports like hotel and airport shuttles. It may be good for smaller vehicles that move dangerous materials. In cities, all sorts of businesses must have deliveries of chemicals, solvents, pressurized gases and fuel. These could all be hazardous and you can make a good career hauling small containers of hazardous materials that must have a placard on the truck. Although it sounds bad, if you learn the regulations and adhere to them, it can be safe and rewarding work.
