Class A, B, C, and M driver licenses are issued to individuals who are exempt or not required to obtain a commercial driver license

Most non-commercial driver licenses issued to persons 18 years of age and older are valid for six years and cost $24 (a $1 administrative fee will be added to in-person or online transactions). Some applicants receive licenses with shorter terms due to restrictions
including, but not limited to, verification of lawful presence, sex offender registration requirements, or being 85 years of age or older.
Individuals who operate any of the following vehicles are exempt from obtaining a CDL but may need a Class A or Class B non-
commercial driver license because the type of vehicle driven still meets the definition of a commercial motor vehicle. For more
information on commercial motor vehicles and requirements for a CDL, please visit their website,
or see the
Texas Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers Handbook

You may download the handbook online.
