    I guess that would be 18-wheeler, and you need a CDL to drive one.

    I’ve driven 18 wheeler cross-country and I’ve driven school bus. I’d choose to haul produce and dry goods over kids ANY day! ;-)

    Ok here is a breakdown on many common trucks;
    Tractor has 3 axles each with 2 wheels for 6
    Trailer has 3 axles each with 4 wheels (double wheels on each axle) for 12 wheels, total 18 wheels. Not for all trucks by any means but thats where the term comes from.

    As Doh said, you do need a Commercial Drivers License, which requires special training. In Maryland, a standard license allows you to drive a noncommercial vehicle weighing less than 26,000 pounds, EXCEPT motorcycles, which need a separate license.

    There are several classes of CDL, depending on the weight of the vehicle. Heavy stuff is Class “A”. Then there are endorsements; Hazmat, tanker, passenger, school bus, etc.
    There is a skills test and a written test. As a bus driver, I hold a class “B” CDL with a passenger endorsement.

    I don’t know enough to comment on what you need for driving 18 wheelers and such. I just know that on my drivers’ license there are 5 categories – Class 5 belongs to most of us, motorcycles have their own classification. the rest belong to air brakes and everything else.

    Each state has their own licensing rules for different classes of vehicles.
