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. The tests must be taken and passed in this sequence. You must hold a Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) for at least 14 days before you can complete the required tests. We recommend you schedule the test time once you receive your CLP as Hawkeye must record your CLP information in Commercial Skills Test Information Management System (CSTIMS) and verification takes at least two business days. Upon successful registration you will need to contact Hawkeye's Regional Transportation and Training Center (RTTC) to schedule your test date and time. We offer flexible scheduling every day of the week including evenings and weekends.  Failing any one test will require a re-test at the additional cost of $100 per testing occurrence. Individual tests are available for purchase on our site under DMV Testing sub-category.  Upon successfully passing all three CDL tests in the series you may obtain your CDL at any driver's license issuance location.
