CDL Skills Assessment and Refresher Class

The CDL Skills Assessment is an evaluation of a driver’s current skill set. It is not a substitution for training. During the evaluation, the instructor will work with you on the vehicle inspection, basic backing maneuvers, and road skills. After completion, the instructor will recommend hours for refresher training based on your skillset. The CDL Skills Assessment is scheduled only for drivers who have some expereince. After completion, our instructor will determine whether or not you are ready to take the CDL Skills Exam. The use of a CNM vehicle for the CDL Skills Exam is at the sole discretion of the instructor based on your skill level. There is no guarantee that you will be able to take the CDL Skills Exam or that you will pass the CDL Skills Exam.

Please fill out the Skills Assessment Form and we will contact you to schedule your assessment.
