Don’t Drop $10K On A CDL Driving School

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.

CDL Truck Rental - Houston

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.

CDL Training - Houston

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.

  • 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

    General Knowledge

    Combination Exam (for Class A licenses only)

    Air Brakes

    Endorsement tests

  • 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.
