Wyoming

The study group meets 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 21 to 25 in the Burlington Fire Hall. A brochure about the study group is at http://bit.ly/cdlstudy.

"The state of Wyoming enforces the class of license regulations, even if you are a farmer driving your product within 150 miles of your farm," said Sandra Frost, UW Extension educator. "If the vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating or the actual weight is more than 26,001 pounds, the driver should have the appropriate class of license for that vehicle. If the gross vehicle weight rating or actual weight is more than 55,000 pounds, the vehicle is automatically a commercial vehicle, and a commercial vehicle license is required."

The morning sessions cover the Wyoming Driver License Manual for Commercial and Heavy Vehicles. Class B and air brake information is covered Jan. 21 to 23. Class A information will be covered Jan. 24. Hazardous materials information will be covered Jan. 24 and 25. Northwest College is providing lunch each day for participants.

"The goal of the study group is to prepare participants for the written and vehicle inspection tests," said Frost. "The class does not include driving practice."

After lunch, participants will learn and practice truck inspection.

"The Wyoming Highway Patrol is participating by sending a motor carrier trooper to share information with the class," said Frost. "A representative from Big Horn Fire District #4 will discuss hazardous materials."

Study materials are provided. Participants will be directed to regional resources and review instructional materials provided by the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Local farmers and ranchers will assist participants with the hands-on, practical aspects of learning.

To register or for more information, contact Frost at 307-754-8836 or sfrost1@uwyo.edu.
