For a Class 1 knowledge test, you must study the Class 1 and Class 2 sections as you will be able to drive a bus with 10 or more passengers. You also need to study the section regarding trailers.


For Class 3, please study the Class 3 section only. You do not have to study trailers or buses, but everything else should be studied.
