THe A is that you can drive anything over 26,001lbs.
X- Tankers
P is for Passengers
H is for Hazardous Material

The Class like A, B, C or D is for the weight of the vehicles your allowed to drive.

The letters X, P, H, T are endoursments

the T is for Doubles and Triples.

My school has a really good program for that. JJ Keller (real big wig in the trucking industry) just dropped $500,000 to our truck driving programs. Good luck.

You can drive anything over 26000 lbs with a C.....Which is school and transit bus types. B is your standard straight truck or dump truck. A is a combination vehicle which is tracto/trailer applications....Air Brakes are mandatory with a Class A, B and C are optional....I believe....except I think for a bus license you have to get a passenger endorse ment... I have my Class A...It'* a walk in the park.....Good Luck and enjoy class!
