Special Licenses in WyomingPage Overview
You'll need to obtain a commercial driver's license (CDL) if you intend to drive any of the following:
- A vehicle whose actual, registered, or gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is over 26,000 pounds and is towing a vehicle with an actual, registered, or GVWR of over 10,000 pounds (class A license)
- A vehicle whose actual, registered, or GVWR is over 26,000 pounds and is not towing another vehicle with a GVWR over 10,000 pounds (class B license)
- A vehicle designed to either transport at least 16 people (including the driver) or carry hazardous materials (class C license)
Certain driving professions require having endorsements in addition to a CDL, while others don't require a CDL. We'll sort out some common scenarios below.
To transport children in a school bus, you need to have a CDL plus a passenger ("P") and a school bus ("S") endorsement.
Shuttle buses come in a variety of styles and sizes and are used in many different ways. Drivers may need to obtain a CDL, along with a passenger or other endorsements. Check with the potential employer to find out what is needed for the particular situation.
While there aren't any special statewide requirements for operating a taxi or limousine, local jurisdictions may impose additional stipulations. So, check with your local government to be sure.
You don't need to have a special license to operate an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or off-road vehicle (ORV).
While you don't need a license, you do need to buy a permit to operate these vehicles on the state's public lands.Other Topics in This SectionOrgan Donation Survey
