Finding a Vehicle for your Test
You must obtain an unloaded representative vehicle of the CDL Class you are testing for. We do not provide testing vehicles for the CDL Skills Exam.
You need to be familiar with the class of vehicle, the gross vehicle weight rating(GVWR), and any restrictions that may apply. Your vehicle must be in working condition and safe to drive. Your vehicle must have current registration, insurance, and DOT Annual Inspection paperwork. Your vehicle needs to be equipped with functioning Emergency Equipment to include fuses, 3 triangles, and a working fire extinguisher.
If you are driving the testing vehicle to the exam site, you must have a licensed Commercial Driver in the vehicle with you. It is illegal to operate the vehicle alone until you have passed the CDL Skills Exam and received your license.
We are not able to test any vehicles that have a School Bus plate, HazMat placards, or tanker vehicles used to transport materials such as propane. We can test water tankers but you need to have the tanker endorsement on your permit.
For Class B Tests
You cannot test for a Class B in a tractor without a trailer. A tractor is classified as a power unit and not a true representative Class B vehicle.
Any combination of vehicles with a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 pounds or more, provided the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle(s) being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
