Class C CDL Trucking Jobs
Short distance trucker jobs may use smaller vehicles. Long haul truck drivers operating tractor trailers must have a class A license. You could possibly obtain a class B or a class C commercial driver license for jobs around town. With a class B license you can drive straight trucks with no trailers. This includes garbage trucks, delivery trucks, large passenger buses, dump trucks, food trucks and cement mixers.
The class C commercial drivers license allows using lighter vehicles that do not fit classes A or B. This includes buses made to carry less than 24 people, including the driver. Class C is good for light transports such as hotel or airport shuttles. It could be perfect for smaller vehicles that deliver dangerous materials. In cities, plenty of businesses require deliveries of solvents, fuel, pressurized gases and chemicals. These may all be hazardous and you can make a good career driving small loads of hazardous materials that require a placard on the truck. Though it sounds scary, if you memorize the regulations and follow them, it can be safe and important work.
