Thanks, great answer guys, BUT DO we need to take a medical certificate or medical documents to dmv when we get the permit ?

No. It's not needed until the day you take that A3 restriction off.

Thats good... Seems like things has changed compared to the past. There use to be an examiner who they called “The Terminator” use to give MTA bus operators a hard time passing the road test.

I'm not sure how the last two come into play being that you have your passenger endorsement. Or if this is the way that DMV are issuing permits until you pass the road test. Take it to pre-employment and see what they say. You're probably not the first person with this particular situation. 

This is what happened to me:

Back in February of 2014, as a result of taking Bus Operator Exam 2613, I went through the training with a Class A Permit with a "P" endorsement, since my former employer encouraged me to get the Class A CDL. When I failed the 10-day training session, I went ahead and took the road test in a tractor-trailer, in which I had a "P" endorsement with a N2 restriction. Approximately a year later, I returned to DMV, and when I returned, with their 'new' Endorsement and Restriction Changes (click here for more information), my initial license stayed the same, however the permit that I was given had the "N" "P" & "S" endorsements with the "M" "P" & "X" restrictions (click here and scroll to the second page for a full list of the endorsements and restrictions). After successfully passing my second CDL road test in a bus, I was given, and still have, a Class A CDL, in which I now have all of the endorsements (Metal Coil, Passenger, School Bus, Doubles/Triples, Tow Truck & Tank/Hazmat).

Therefore, if you get any additional restrictions on your permit, it is fine and it's only temporary. As it states on the first link, the "P" & "X" restrictions will be removed once you successfully take and pass your road test.

I was called in may And my number was 65**

In an effort to hide your identity, since anyone can view this website, please do not disclose the last digit or two of your list number.

In addition, when you're asked what your list number is, you can say something as "My list number is in the 6500's" or "My list number is in between 6500 and 6600" or something to that nature.

Thank you.

If you're having trouble, I would encourage you to contact Ms. Emma Marie Rivera, the Executive Vice President of Human Resources. Her information can be found here.

Good luck...
