The passenger endorsement applies to drivers who want to drive a bus in any Class A, B, or C CDL. Applicants must pass a special knowledge test, and must pass skills tests in a passenger vehicle. The Virginia CDL passenger test consists of 20 questions. To pass, you must correctly answer at least 16 questions (80%). The VA passenger test covers the following sections of the Virginia CDL Manual: Driving Safely, Transporting Passengers, Vehicle Inspection Test, Basic Control Skills Test and Road Test.

after stopping.
as they get off the bus.

4. If you lose ABS control on one or more wheels, you should:

immediately report it to the motor carrier.
5. In a dual air brake system, if one air system is very low on pressure:
