You must provide a DOT medical certificate, pay the statutory fees and you will be issued a CDL permit. The CDL permit will allow you to drive the type of commercial vehicles that you are permitted for - with a CDL holder present in the passenger seat of the vehicle.

SeeHow to Get a CDL
The vast majority of CDL holders did not go through a truck driving school. Truck driving schools average about $4200.00 and are generally priced between $3000.00 and $8000.00. Most people get their "hands on" experience behind the wheel with a friend, relative or employer who have access to a representative-type vehicle and who hold a valid CDL for that type of vehicle. This saves thousands of dollars. If you do not have the means of getting this "hands on" experience, you may have to choose a truck/bus driving school. If you already have your CDL permit, they will usually give you a large discount. Other schools require that you already have a CDL permit. We include links to videos covering the three part skills tests that will give you a "head-start" once you get "behind the wheel". For more information, go to: CHEAP CDL Skills Training

Absolutely! Security is our number one priority. All on-line transactions are sent through our secure server and encrypted with 256-bit technology.
