Professional driving is a rewarding career with excellent financial rewards. However, it takes time and effort to get a Texas commercial driving license. Schools are one way to get your license. A CDL program can cost upwards of $10 thousand, and graduating can take 6-12 months. After that, you still need to pass your CDL Skills Test.
CDL Truck Services offers an alternative that saves time and money. No matter where you are on your journey to becoming a commercial driver, we have solutions that will help you, and unlike trucking schools, we can get you licensed fast.
From helping you acquire your commercial learner’s permit to CDL test truck rentals, we can help you pass your exams and get your license in as little as two weeks. Contact us today to start getting your commercial driving license.Get my CDL Now
The first big hurdle to acquiring your Texas commercial driver’s license is getting your Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP). A CLP will allow you to drive a Class A or Class B vehicle while supervised by a licensed commercial driver. However, to get a CLP, you’ll need to pass 4 or 5 written exams.
The Texas CDL permit tests include the Texas Commercial Rules exam, the Air Brakes Test, the CDL General Knowledge test, and--if you’re trying to get a Class A license--the Combination Exam. To pass, you need to score 80% or higher on every exam.
These tests aren’t easy, but CDL Truck Services has you covered. We offer practice tests and study guides with the actual questions you’ll answer on the exam. All you need to do is study, and you’ll be prepared to pass your written exams on the first tryLearn More
CDL Truck Services offers Class A and Class B truck rentals for both practice and your CDL skills test. We’ve carefully selected every truck in our fleet to provide the vehicles that will best help our students succeed and pass their CDL road test on the first try.
We’ve ensured that every one of our vehicles has high visibility to make turning, backing, and maneuvering easier. Our fleet includes trucks with both manual and automatic transmissions, so you’ll be able to rent and practice in the exact kind of truck you’ll be driving.Get my CDL Now
Each of our truck rentals comes complete with one-on-one instruction from one of our experienced teachers. Our instructors have extensive experience helping student drivers learn everything they need to know to pass the CDL Road test, including helping them understand what the test includes.
They’ll begin by teaching you about the Pre Trip Inspection portion of the test and giving you strategies to complete it successfully. They’ll offer insight into your driving abilities and develop a custom plan for you to practice your weakest skills during your rental. When your rental is concluded, you’ll have everything you need to pass the CDL skills test on the first try.Learn More
Before getting your CLP, you’ll need to complete all of the initial paperwork to get your license. Once you’ve completed that paperwork, you can begin the process of acquiring your CLP. To do so, you’ll need to pass 4-5 written exams, depending on what kind of license you’re seeking:
Texas Commercial Rules - Contains 20 questions.
General Knowledge Test - Contains 50 questions.
Texas CDL Air Brakes Test - Contains 25 questions.
Combination Vehicle Exam - Class A License only. Contains 20 questions.
CDL license requirements vary and depend on the kind of license you’re seeking. You’re required to hold a Commercial Learner’s Permit for at least 14 days before taking the CDL Road Test. This is to give you time to practice driving.
You may require medical certification to get your license, also. Whether or not you need a medical exam depends on the kind of license you’re getting. Find more information about medical exams and other prerequisites at the Texas DPS website.
Your final test determines whether or not you’ll get your commercial driver’s license. You’ll need to supply your own Class A or Class B truck for the exam. The test has three major portions:
Pre-Trip Inspection - There are two parts to this portion of the test. First, you’ll be judged on your ability to determine the roadworthiness of your vehicle. You’ll also be tested on your ability to initiate the truck’s air brakes system.
Basic Maneuvers - You’ll take the portion of the test on a closed course at the DPS office. You’ll be tested on your ability to drive, turn, back up, and park your commercial vehicle around obstacles on the course.
Road Test - On the final part of the test, you’ll take the vehicle out onto the road. You’ll be judged on your adherence to traffic laws and ability to maneuver your vehicle safely in normal traffic conditions.
Each rental includes the rental, a comprehensive review from one of our experienced instructors, and 2 hours at the testing site. Our instructors will help with every portion of the test, including the air brake testing, the pre-trip test, backing skills, and the road test. When you’re done, we’ll make sure you have the knowledge and skills to ace the Texas CDL test.
Trucking schools aren’t only expensive. They also take months to complete your coursework, and after that, you still have to go through the state requirements to acquire your license. CDL Truck Services offer an affordable, fast alternative. Contact us today to start getting your CDL.Contact Us
