What is a CDL and what are the different classes of CDLs?

A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is a license required to operate large, heavy, or tagged hazardous goods vehicles in stores in the United States. The type or “class” of CDL a truck driver needs depends on the type of commercial vehicle being operated. A truck driver can hold a CDL in one of three classes: Class A, Class B, and Class C.

For more information on the different classes of CDLs, why a CDL is needed, and the cost, experience, and other requirements to obtain a CDL, see Truck Driving Job Resources.

What are the different types of drivers?

Driver type refers to employment situations or driving arrangements in which a truck driver is engaged. The most common truck-driver agreements include:

  • Company driver: Drivers who work for a specific company that has its own fleet of trucks. “Corporations” can be (1) freight forwarders who exist solely to move the goods of others, or (2) companies that carry their own cargo to support their own company’s product or service.
  • Hire purchase: Drivers hired by freight forwarders who rent the truck to the driver for a fee until the truck is paid for and the driver takes ownership of the truck.
  • Owner operator (OO): Drivers who own the truck that he or she operates as an independent company. Owners Operators can also be referred to as “independent contractors”.
  • Team rider: Drivers who work with a partner who shares driving and other duties with the other partner.

For more information on driver types, including how to become each driver type, job requirements, personal characteristics, pay and compensation structures, see Truck Driving Job Resources.

What are the different types of trailers?

The trailer type (or equipment type) refers to the load that a truck driver is carrying. Whether it’s dry goods, refrigerated goods, gasoline or livestock, drivers need to know how to handle their truck, trailer and the load they are pulling. Different types of materials require different types of trailers, and each type of trailer presents drivers with their own set of challenges.

For more information on trailer types, including the type of companies that rent each trailer type, driver requirements, required endorsements, pay and compensation structures, see Job Resources for Truck Drivers.

What are the different types of routes?

The route type refers to the routes that are assigned to a truck driver. The most common route types in the trucking industry are:

  • Special routes: These routes are assigned to specific drivers who drive the specially assigned routes and no others.
  • Local routes: These routes are locally based routes that generally run daily and include multiple stops for unloading cargo.
  • Regional routes: These routes are in a specific region that can include only a few counties in a state, a state itself, or a number of states.
  • Over the road (OTR) routes: OTR routes are longer regional or cross-border routes on which one or more deliveries are often carried out.

For more information on route types, including the pros and cons of driving, see Job Resources for Truck Drivers.

What is a confirmation?

Endorsements (permits) (or certifications) are required for CDL holders who drive and transport various types of equipment and cargo. Although more endorsements are available, the most common endorsements for long haul truck drivers include:

  • Double / triple: This confirmation is required for drivers carrying double or triple trailers.
  • HazMat (dangerous goods): This notice is required for the transport of hazardous materials such as flammable liquids, flammable liquids, gases and other explosive materials.
  • Tanker: This confirmation is required for the operation of a tanker, whereby both vehicles are equipped with a permanent or temporary tank.

For more information about endorsements, different types of endorsements, requirements and costs for obtaining endorsements, and additional compensation options for endorsed truck drivers, see Truck Driver Job Resources.
