Message added by +Young+

Here is the Notice of Examination for this specific exam.

This list was published on September 8th, 2021. To find out your list number, click here and type either your last name or "9618" into the search box on the top right hand side of the screen.

If you need help getting your Class B Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com Remember, the multiple-choice exams that you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Good luck!

if they call you before than might have to decline for a few months then reinstate, these guys can elaborate further  @SevenEleven @+Young+

First of all, as of this typing (Monday, September 21st, 2021 at approximately 8:30 PM), the list has not been published. Therefore, although you got a 95, which is a very good score, neither you or me know how many people scored higher than you, right? As a result, let's wait until the list is officially published, and then we'll take it from there.

As far as an age requirement is concerned - if you click here, and you carefully examine the top of the first page, you will see that the minimum age to hold a Class B CDL is eighteen (18) years old. Once you turn 21, then you will be eligible to transport hazardous materials or operate a School Bus. Therefore, they should let you go through with the process.

You're welcome. As far as when the list is published - "I'll believe it when I see it."

List established as of 9/8/21, I did better then I thought, list number 5x.

Good for you! My final score on the exam was 90, and my list number is in the 700's.

What's interesting to note as well is, as I play around with the Active Civil Service List webpage, simply by typing "9618" into the search box, the list only consists of 2,871 people - which is not a lot of people, however we'll see what happens as time progresses.

Good luck everyone!!

Hello friends and future MTA family. Took my Air Brake endorsement test today and successfully passed. I will try to obtain the CDL B license while taking lessons at a certified school before my list number (2,1**) is called for Exam 9618. I’m assuming that would make the transition easier while getting a foot in the door. Does anyone know the current list number that they’re up to? Greatly appreciated thanks in advance.

I don't have the documentation available but there's two tiers:

The standard is $15 copay but no paycheck deduction. The premium is $0 copay but ~$30/check.

The majority of things are covered with just your copay.

Thanks so much. Am considering leaving my NYS job just because of the health insurance. I don't like the NYSHIP health plan. I might get an email anytime. Please anyone with more detail information should help please. Thanks in advance

Just got my letter 3xx.

That took forever. Wonder how long the hiring process will take now.

I'm a school bus driver so I already have my license and endorsements.

Logan Bus Company has immediate positions available. If you’re interested I can put you in touch with the hiring manager.

As per the guidelines, if we can stay on-topic, it would be appreciated. If you're looking for experience, consider looking at this thread/topic.

In addition, just to add my two cents, if you do not have the School Bus "S" endorsement, and you live in Queens, there is a Coach Bus Company out of Nassau and Suffolk County which is also looking to hire drivers. For more information, send me a Private Message (PM) and we'll take it from there.

After looking at the Notice of Examination linked at the top of this forum, I didn't see any requirement for age. Good Luck!
