How to Create a Vehicle Class

Navigate to the Operations tab, then select the Vehicles icon.

1. Click the Class link in the Vehicle Profile. The Vehicle Classes window will open.

2. Click the new icon to create a new vehicle class.

3. Enter the Name of the vehicle class. This is a required field.
