« back to classes page
ClassGraphic DOT certified third party testing is available for individuals seeking to obtain a Commercial Driver's License (CDL A). CDL testing has three phases: Pre-Trip, Skills Test, and Road Test; tests must be taken in this sequence.  All three must be passed in the required sequence to receive a Commercial Driver's License.  After you've passed the knowledge test, obtained and held the Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) for at least 14 days, passed the CDL Test 1: Pre-Trip Vehicle Inspection, you are able to take the CDL Test 2: Skills Test.  You may schedule the test time upon receiving your CLP, however, you will not be able to test until you have held your CLP for 14 days.  Each test costs $100 per attempt.  Failing any one test will require a re-test at the additional cost of $100 per testing occurrence. 

You must provide a vehicle that is in good working order and is representative of the class of license you are applying for.  If you are unable to provide one please contact us for otherarrangements. Your basic control skills (maneuvering around cones and backing maneuvers) could be tested using one or more of the following exercises on our driving range:
  • Straight line backing
  • Offset back/right
  • Offset back/left
  • Parallel park (driver side)
  • Parallel park (conventional)
  • Alley dock
See section 12 in the Commercial Driver License Manual for a description of the skills test exercises and scoring.
