    Hi all,

    I was a driver helper and sorter several years ago. Left UPS and have been driving a city bus on a class B CDL since then. That's now ending and I'd like to apply for a seasonal driver position back at UPS but the application says, "Do you have a valid non CDL Class C license?" I know my B is "above" the standard C and should be backwards compatible, but the way they worded the question made me wonder if they turn away class B and *require* a class C. Any help or advice is appreciated. thanks.

    I can't believe you really have to ask that question and I can't believe I'm actually going to respond. You need a license to drive at UPS. The class C or D is the lowest form of license you can get above a learner's permit.

    They were right, it was pretty easy and fulfilling being nice. Thanks!

    Class A, B, and C are CDL’s aren’t they? Class D is a basic drivers license.

    Class C or D in some states is the basic license. I don't remember which ones use the C and which ones use the D.

    Gotcha. Just looked it up and apparently there are non-CDL class C’s which basically means you can drive any non commercial vehicle weighing less than 26,000 pounds.

    Ya know, there are even some states that require a valid chauffeur's to work for UPS.

    Yes, but the way the question is worded made me wonder if they, for whatever reason, don't want someone with a class B. Back when I was with them driving wasn't on my radar so I don't know what they're looking for other than what the application says. Thanks.

    What state are you in?

    They just want you to have a valid driver license higher than a permit or motorcycle.

    I'm in Illinois. Here class D is regular, class C is first level CDL, class B is next with air brakes/vehicles that hold more than 16 persons, class A is tractor/trailer.

    They are all backwards compatible. My class a license lists ABCD on the front. If i had a class b it would list BCD
