CDL Class B Permit Prep Course


with Jean Pierre Akayezu/Trace Salter

Calendar Sep 9, 2024 at 9 am, runs for 13 weeks

The purpose of this online program is to prepare English language learners for the Commercial Driver's License Class B permit test. Students also receive practice so that they can take the Passenger (Bus) Vehicle and School Bus endorsements as part of their permit application. A Class B Maine license allows drivers to operate a vehicle up to 26,000 pounds. Past students have been hired as bus drivers at a variety of locations in the Portland area, including MetroBus and Portland Public Schools. Students will be using the State of Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicle handbook and online resources to prepare for the multiple choice exam.
