    I have a class B commercial license and wanted to know what else I would have to do to get a class A. Will I have to retest and drive a big rig? Right now I just drive a 77 pass school bus.

    I'm not sure if you have to take another written test, but you'll definetely have to take a road test in a class A vehicle.

    You will have to take a written test for tractor trailer, and then any additional type of vehicle you will be driving. You will also have to take a driving test with a tractor trailer. I just did this in Texas in November of last year. I upgraded from my class B to my A. I had to take the tractor trailer written test, and then I took doubles/triples, and also tanker just for the hell of it.
