    Do you have to have a CDL of any class or have any endorsements to be a courier at Fedex Express? Im referring to driving a Sprinter, W700, or W900 trucks. If so what class CDL or what endorsements will be needed? Thanks

    No for a Sprinter or a 700. Not sure about a 900. If you are a cover or swing driver you need a CDL with Class C (haz mat) endorsement.

    no for all trucks. Most new swings dont even require a haz endorsement anymore.

    Depends on your state licensing requirements, based on the vehicle's GVWR...

    I know in Illinois you need a Class C license to operate a w900, but all the smaller trucks are just a regular passenger license

    Apparently just a Pulse now is the only requirement...

    Otherwise a regular DL is all you need.(cept as mentioned some states may vary)

    Don't be alarmed when they place a mirror under your nose. Just part of the vetting process.

    I'm not even sure how some of these guys pass DOT physicals, most of the old timers are hobbling around with bad knees, high blood pressure, and diabetes... just to name a few ailments I've seen. We have 3 crrs that each tip the scales at over 300lbs... not to say they can't do the job, but it's not a healthy 300lbs
