MA CDL-B Manual Information

Currently, our only manual vehicle is a 5th wheel tractor trailer. Even though you can drive that truck with a CDL-B if there isn't a trailer coupled, it cannot be used for the road test.

We are working on a solution, but for the time being we are not offering training on the manual truck for CDL-B for Massachusetts residents.

 

Reasonable Expectations

We allow a reasonable amount of training for drivers pursuing a CDL-A on a manual 5th Wheel setup.

If you cannot drive a manual transmission or drive/backup with a trailer prior to starting here, you will be allotted time to learn both, but if they are not acquired in a timely manner, you will need to take your road test on a lower level of vehicle and tuition will not be refunded.

 

Upgrading?

If you are upgrading from a CDL-B to a CDL-A you will register for the appropriate CDL-A program that you need & we will adjust the price on the back end to $5,000.

You are required to complete all the permit, theory (Do Theory upgrade from B to A), and testing requirements as if you're getting a CDL for the first time. If you have an unrestricted CDL-B, you can train & test on an automatic truck and will keep your ability to drive a manual truck.
