Special Licenses in Arkansas
If you intend to drive a vehicle that weighs over 16,000 pounds or is meant to transport more than 16 passengers (driver included), you will need to obtain a commercial driver's license (CDL).
If you need to obtain a CDL or a license endorsement, check out our Applying for a New CDL article for instructions on how to do so. And, don't miss our other commercial driving-related articles, too.
School Bus Driver
Those intending to be a school bus driver need to obtain a school bus endorsement, in addition to their CDL.
Drivers, such as chauffeurs and taxi drivers, who tranport passengers as part of their job need to have at least a passenger endorsement on their license.
You don't need a special license to drive an off-highway vehicle (OHV) or all-terrain vehicle (ATV) in the state.Other Topics in This Section
