Getting a Class A or Class B license in Texas can be a long process. One option to get licensed to drive commercial motor vehicles is to go to school. Trucking schools can cost upward of $10 thousand and can take from six months to a year to complete. After that, you’ll need to pass the Texas CDL Road Test in order to finally get your license.
CDL Truck Services offers an alternative that can get you on the road in as little as two weeks and for a fraction of the cost. Whether you’re just starting the process or are almost done, we can provide solutions to help your next step. Contact us today to learn how we can get you behind the wheel in as little as two weeks.

After completing all the initial paperwork, the first big hurdle to acquiring your Texas CDL is qualifying for a Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP). To do so, you’ll need to pass 4-5 exams, depending on what kind of license you’re applying for. The Texas CDL permit tests can be difficult, and you’ll need to get at least 80% correct to pass.
CDL Truck Services has what you need. We offer practice tests and study guides that feature the exact questions you’ll be asked on the test. All you need to do is take the time to study and understand the material and prepare to pass your written exams the first time you take them.Learn More

The first big step to getting a CDL is acquiring your Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP). In order to get your CLP, you’ll need to pass 4-5 written exams, depending on what kind of license you’re getting:
Texas Commercial Rules
Texas CDL General Knowledge Test
Texas CDL Air Brakes Test
Combination Vehicle Exam (For Class A licenses only)
The requirements to get a CDL in Texas depend a lot on the exact nature of the license. In order to get any commercial driving license, you must have a CLP and hold it for at least 14 days. That’s the shortest amount of time it takes to get a CDL in Texas.
You may need to get a medical certification, though it depends on the exact nature of your license. You can find more information about medical exams, certifications, and other requirements at the Texas DPS website.
Once you’ve completed your written exams and held your CLP for 14 days, you’ll be able to take the CDL Skills Test. When you pass that, you’ll be qualified to get your CDL.
The CDL Skills Test is the last hurdle between you and a career on the road. Our instructors will prepare you to ace this exam. It has three major parts:
Pre-Trip Inspection - This part of the exam has two parts. In the first, you’ll be judged on your ability to determine the roadworthiness of a commercial vehicle. In the second, you’ll need to properly activate and initiate the vehicle’s air braking system.
Basic Maneuvers - The second part of the exam is done on a closed obstacle course. During this part of the exam, you’ll be required to drive, turn, back up, and park your truck.
Road Test - On the last part of the exam, you’ll be driving on the open road. You’ll be assessed on your knowledge of commercial driving laws and your ability to maneuver and drive the truck in traffic conditions.
If you’re looking to start a new career as a commercial vehicle driver, skip the expensive schools and months of coursework. Let CDL Truck Services get you licensed. You’ll be on the road and earning money in no time. Contact us today to begin your new career.Contact Us
