Question 1: [Removed and Reserved 76FR26854 May 9, 2011]

Guidance:

Question 2: May a driver use a truck tractor (as defined in 49 CFR 390.5) as a representative vehicle for purposes of completing the skills tests for a Class B commercial driver’s license (CDL)?

Guidance:

No. A driver must be tested in a truck or bus (as those terms are defined in 49 CFR 390.5), or other single unit vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 11,794 kilograms (26,001 pounds) or more to satisfy the skills testing requirements for a Class B CDL. A truck tractor is designed to operate with a towed unit(s), typically a semitrailer (as defined in 49 CFR 390.5) and therefore could only be used as a representative vehicle when connected to a semitrailer, for a Class A CDL.
