Class C Commercial License Local Trucking Jobs
In-town trucking jobs often use lighter trucks. Long haul truck drivers operating tractor trailers must have a class A license. You might be able to get a class B or a class C commercial driver license for local jobs. With a class B license you can operate straight trucks with no trailers. This includes cement mixers, garbage trucks, delivery trucks, large passenger buses, dump trucks, and food trucks.
The class C commercial driver license allows using smaller vehicles that do not fit classes A or B. This includes buses made to carry up to 23 passengers, including the driver. Class C is good for light transports like hotel and airport shuttles. It is also suitable for smaller trucks that move flammable materials. In cities, many businesses need deliveries of chemicals, solvents, pressurized gases and fuel. These may all be dangerous and you can make a good career driving small containers of hazardous materials that must have a placard on the truck. Although it sounds scary, if you memorize the rules and adhere to them, it is safe and rewarding work.
