The FMCSA now requires that everyone pursuing a Class A or Class B license, as well as those seeking Passenger or School Bus endorsements, take and pass Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT courses).
CDL Truck Services offers the full suite of ELDT courses online. Our online ELDT courses can be taken from anywhere–even from the comfort of your own home. Sign up today and begin your journey to becoming a commercial driver.Learn More
Trucking schools are expensive, and even the best ones around don’t offer guarantees that you’ll pass your tests and obtain a CDL. Even if you do pass, it’s difficult to part with that much money without a guarantee.
CDL Truck Services offers an affordable alternative to expensive trucking schools. We have everything you need to take your driving test, pass on the first time, and get your CDL. We offer Texas CDL practice tests for every written exam and practice truck rentals that include one-on-one sessions with our instructors.
All of our rentals include instruction, practice time, and reservation of a truck for your Texas CDL driving test. We can have you licensed in as little as two weeks. If you need to get a Texas Commercial Driver’s License, contact us today. We’ll set you on the path to passing your CDL test on the first try.
All testing is done at our location in Longview.
Before you get your Texas CDL learner’s permit, you need to pass written exams to qualify for your commercial learner’s permit (CLP). These include the Texas Commercial Rules test, General Knowledge exam, Combined Exam, and the Texas CDL Air Brakes Test.
CDL Truck Services offers test preparation packets that can prepare you for every written exam you’ll need to pass for your permit. These packets contain the actual questions you’ll encounter on the test and will help you get ready to pass them on your first try. All you have to do is study.Learn More
You’ll need a Class A or Class B truck to drive during your road test. Before that, you’ll need a vehicle to practice driving in. Commercial vehicles aren’t like civilian cars and trucks, and it takes some time to get used to them. Not all Class A and Class B trucks are created equal, either.
CDL Truck Service’s fleet of rental trucks consists of high-visibility vehicles to make the backing and turning portions of your exam easier. We’ve especially selected these trucks because they’re easy to handle, easy to drive, and easy to learn in. They’ll help you get ready to pass your skills test on the first try.Get my CDL Now
Every CDL Truck rental from CDL Truck Services includes one-on-one instruction from one of our experienced CDL test instructors. Our instructors will walk you through every portion of the skills test, work with you on your driving, and help prepare you to pass your Texas CDL driving test on your first try.
All testing is done in Longview, TX.
Our instructors will start by showing you how to perform the pre-trip inspection. Next, they’ll help teach you how to operate the air brake system. Finally, they’ll critique your driving and develop a strategy for you to practice your driving skills for the rest of your rental. When you’re finished, you’ll be prepared for your driving exam.Learn More
After you’ve completed all the necessary paperwork, the first step to getting your Texas CDL is to obtain your commercial learner’s permit (CLP). To acquire your CLP, you’ll need to pass the written CDL exams:
Texas Commercial Rules
Combination Exam (for Class A licenses only)
The requirements for a CDL vary depending on what kind of license you’re getting. For all licenses, you must hold your CLP for a minimum of 14 days. This gives you time to practice driving and to prepare for your skills test.
You may also need to take and pass a medical test. This varies from license to license, though. You can find information about medical exams on the Texas DPS Website.
Once you’ve practiced your driving skills and 14 days have passed, you’ll need to pass the Texas CDL skills test. You can take this at your local DPS office, but you can also take them at any office around the state.
When you take your driving test, your proctor will administer the test in three parts:
Pre-Trip Inspection. The pre-trip inspection portion will assess your ability to determine if your vehicle is safe to drive. They’ll also check that you know how to initiate the air brake system.
Basic Maneuvers. This portion of the exam will test your ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle on a closed course. You’ll be tested on your ability to turn, back up, move forward, and park.
Road Test. On the final portion of the test, you’ll take the vehicle out onto the open road. You’ll be judged how well you perform in standard traffic conditions in your area.
Don’t waste money on expensive trucking schools and time on waiting for everyone in the class to learn how to do the same thing. CDL Truck Services can help you get your Texas CDL and on the road in as little as two weeks.Contact Us
