The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles issues the following classes of licenses: Class A, B, C, and E. Classes A, B, and C are for drivers of commercial motor vehicles such as large trucks and buses. Class E is for drivers of non-commercial vehicles. There is a separate manual entitled Commercial Driver License Manual for truck and bus drivers. This manual is available at any driver licenses or tax collector licensing agent office that offer driver license services or on the Department's web page at www.flhsmv.gov. If you wish to drive a motor vehicle you must be properly tested and licensed.
