[/ QUOTE ] And that's all DREY can do. He has a class "B" which as stated on the Iowa CDL web site:
<font color="blue"> What do the terms Class A, Class B, and Class C mean on my Iowa CDL?
It refers to the type of vehicle that you may operate . . .
CLASS A . . . allows you to operate vehicles which tow trailers or other vehicles with a GVWR over 10,000 pounds. A Class "A" license also allows you to operate Class B and C vehicles.
<font color="green">CLASS B . . . allows you to operate single vehicles with a GVWR of 26,001 lbs or more OR a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 lbs. or more, towing trailers/vehicles rated at 10,000 pounds GVWR or less. A Class "B" license also allows you to operate Class C vehicles.</font color>
CLASS C . . .allows you to operate vehicles under 26,001 lbs. GVWR; that are designed to transport 16 or more persons including the driver; or that carry 15 or less people (including the driver) transporting children to or from school and home regularly for compensation, or carry hazardous materials in amounts requiring placarding.</font color>
Not knocking ya DREY, congrats. I personaly wish every person in this country had to take the CDL test. There would be a drastic and significant reduction in motor vehicle accidents. I have had my class "A" CDL for 10 years [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
