    About to hit 2 years working for UPS, and I just wanted to know if you need a class A drivers license to drive the brown package delivery trucks? or can you be able to get the position with just a class c?

    Two friggin years on the job and you're just now asking? I don't know what's worse, you signing up to this site to ask or not knowing the answer after two years. Do you really work for UPS? They are called cars not trucks by the way!

    But anyways, to answer your question, yes

    Ontario is in Cali.
    Usually, Class A is all you need.
    Class C or D vary by state - these are normally referred to Commercial Drivers License or CDL.
    If you drive a large 24 foot van or a loaded out P-1000 Package Car.
    The brown trucks are referred to as Package Cars.
    The Tractor-Trailer vehicle combinations definitely require a CDL.

    Don't mind these other goobers attacking you.
    They are trying to make up for their inadequacies.
    Scooby has a 1 inch appendage (for example). He dates a chiquaqua.

    In my state UPS under reports the vehicles weights allowing any Class D license holder to drive anything but feeders .

    Doubtful!
    UPS rates their vehicles at less than 24,000 pounds GVW and that is what is filed with vehicle registration.
    UPS use to overrate the GVW but when the Feds passed the CDL law, UPS started rating vehicles under 24k GVW.
    If UPS Driver goes over 24k GVW and is caught, he/she and company will be in trouble.
