Classification Guide

Classes of Licenses

The class of license you are issued is dependent upon the type of vehicle that you drive. Wyoming law  [W.S. 31-7-109]  defines the class code that is assigned to a driver's license based upon the type of vehicle driven.  

The different class codes for licensing are:

Class “B” Vehicle:  Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 pounds or more and/or towing a single vehicle or trailer that has a GVWR of 10,000 pounds or less. May operate off-road recreational vehicles and mopeds.
