Exam

When preparing for a commercial driver’s license, simply reading through the CDL’s drivers manual or depending on your driving experience alone will not provide you with the necessary information and skills to pass the various CDL tests and licensing. Further training should be obtained in order to pass the CDL written and skill tests.

THE PROCESS OF OBTAINING A COMMERCIAL DRIVER’S LICENSE

Similar to getting a regular driver license, those looking to obtain a CDL must first get a permit by passing a series of written exams. While specific requirements vary from state to state, most states CDL permit testing cover General Knowledge, Air Brakes, and Combination vehicles. For drivers in need of certain endorsements such as Hazardous Materials (HazMat), additional written CDL endorsements exams are needed. Finally, drivers must pass the CDL driving test, which is a 3-part exam that includes pre-trip inspection test, basic control skill test, and a driving test. Once all three skills are passed, the driver can be issued a CDL.
