80 Hour CDL Class B/P Training Course

Course Overview

The 80-Hour Class B/P CDL course is designed to teach students the basic operations of a passenger bus with an automatic transmission and equipped with air brakes. A Class B/P CDL is necessary to operate any automatic single vehicle with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 26,001 pounds or more and a towing capacity of no more than 10,000 pounds. Class BP vehicles do not typically have a trailer attached.  

This course includes 40 hours of classroom instruction. During the classroom segment students will learn how to obtain their Class B CDL permit with a passenger endorsement and air brakes, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, electronic & paper log books, map reading, Compliance Safety & Accountability (CSA), as well as FMCSA drug & alcohol clearinghouse registration.  

Students will learn how to properly perform a pre-trip safety inspection of the vehicle and the basic control skills associated with the State of Michigan CDL exam. This includes straight line backing, off-set backing, and 90 degree backing skills.  

Additionally, students will be taught how to safely operate on public roadways. This includes city and highway operations, hazardous perceptions, speed & space management, lane control, sign identification, and learning maximum bridge heights for Class B/P commercial vehicles.
