Our Class 3 training focuses on developing the necessary skills to operate light to medium commercial vehicles with a GVWR ranging from 14,001 pounds (6,350 kilograms) to 26,000 pounds (11,793 kilograms). This includes a variety of single-unit vehicles like straight trucks, box trucks, and passenger buses. The training program focuses on building fundamental driving skills, including vehicle control, parking, turning, and backing techniques specific to light to medium commercial vehicles.
