In order to drive most commercial tractor trailers, you will need a Class A Commercial Driver's License (CDL). Passing the CDL exam is required to drive a truck in every state. The CDL test is designed to ensure that all commercial drivers are experts in their field and meet all medical and safety requirements. In order to take the CDL exam and earn an unrestricted interstate CDL, you must meet the following requirements:
- Be 21 years old
- Provide a Medical Examiner's Report showing that you're healthy enough to drive a truck
- Be licensed to drive a car
- Have a valid Social Security Card
If you meet the above requirements, 160 Driving Academy is here and ready to help you prepare for your CDL test at one of our many campuses across the Midwest. If you are over 21 and have had no felonies, DUIs, or drug arrests in over 10 years, a commercial trucking company will likely offer you full tuition reimbursement upon graduation.
