Passenger endorsement Practice Test

Getting a CDL license with a P endorsement does require that a person follows a number of different steps before receiving this license. Again, based on the state, the prospective passenger driver must apply for the license via the state’s process online or in their DMV office. Also, it is important that they pass a written exam with the minimum score for that specific exam and state. People must also pass a physical exam to make sure that they are physically fit. Additionally, to ensure the person can actually drive a passenger vehicle, they are also taken on the road to pass these requirements too. So, there is quite a bit that the person has to do before they can receive their CDL with a passenger endorsement.

The cost of a CDL Passenger endorsement

Each state charges different fees to receive this kind or license with the proper P endorsement. So, it is best for everyone to look on their states’ official site to see what their fees are, as well as what they actually cover. For instance, the cost of a CDL license with a P endorsement in the state of Pennsylvania is 90.50, which covers the cost of a CDL for a period of 4 years.

How to Apply for Passenger Endorsement

Each applicant has a choice of how they want to apply. They may apply online or in a DMV office within that state.

There are three types of CDL classes that determine the type of vehicle you may drive and how much you may tow. A Class A CDL class allows you to operate a vehicle with a GCWR of 26,001 if the vehicle you tow weighs more than 10,000 and a Class B CDL allows you to operate a vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds or operate any vehicle towing another vehicle that weighs less than 10,000 GVWR. With a Class C CDL, you can operate a Class C vehicle that transports hazardous materials.
