CDL Truck Services specializes in making sure you get your Texas CDL fast. We can help you every step of the way while you work to get or upgrade your commercial license.
We are an approved FMCSA training provider.
Before you start getting your license, you should see if you meet the requirements for a Texas Commercial Driver’s License.
To qualify for a Texas CDL, you must meet the following physical requirements:
● Be a Texas resident at least 21 years of age
● Be able to read, understand, and speak English
● Have all of your limbs
● Have full use of your hands, feet, and appendages
● Have at least 20/40 vision in both eyes (corrective lenses are allowed)
● Have good hearing
You will not qualify for a Texas CDL if you have any of the following:
● Diabetes that requires the use of insulin to control
● Heart problems
● Severe respiratory dysfunction
● High blood pressure (use of medicine is acceptable)
● A substance abuse problem, alcohol included
● Physical, mental, or emotional disease that would impair your ability to drive a vehicle
In addition, your driving record may disqualify you from getting a Texas CDL. Serious moving violations and DWIs are included.
If you meet the above requirements, stop by your local DPS office and fill out an application for a CDL. The Texas DPS will perform a background check on you to ensure that you meet all the above qualifications.
Effective February 7, 2022, anyone applying for a new CDL, upgrading to a Class A or Class B license, or seeking certain endorsements will be required to complete FMCSA Entry Level Driver Training courses.
Just like with a regular Texas driver’s license, to get a CDL, you must first obtain a permit. The permit will allow you to practice driving and receive instruction while behind the wheel of a Class A, Class B, or Class C vehicle.
CDL Truck Services is here to help you with this part. In order to get your Texas CDLP, you need to pass the CDL written examinations first. Our Texas CDL written test preparation packet will help you do this.
Our test preparation packet is only $125 and features all of the questions and answers each of the four tests use. In addition to that, our instructors will be able to give you some tips and advice on taking the test.
Get a CDL Practice Test
Before you qualify to get a Commercial Learner’s Permit (CPL), you need to take and pass written exams, including:
Texas Commercial Vehicle Operation Test, which covers the basics of operating a commercial vehicle.
CDL General Knowledge Test is the longest test you’ll have to take and covers vehicle operation, rules of the road, and other concepts.
CDL Air Brakes Test covers how to operate a commercial vehicle’s air brakes system.
The Combination Exam is only required if you’re pursuing a Class A license, and reinforces concepts from previous exams.
Endorsements will allow you to drive certain vehicles or transport certain materials. Each endorsement requires a special test to ensure you’ll transport that material safely and securely. Endorsements include:
● H - Certified to transport hazardous materials
● N - Certified to operate a tank vehicle that’s transporting liquid or gas
● P - Certified to operate a vehicle transporting people
● S - Certified to operate a school bus
● T - Certified to two or three trailers
● X - Certified to transport a combination of hazardous material and tanks
After you’ve acquired your CLP, you’re ready to get behind-the-wheel training at CDL Truck services. Contact us and schedule a time to rent a vehicle and learn from our qualified and dedicated instructors.
CDL Truck Services’ fleet of Class A and Class B commercial vehicles can help you learn and get comfortable behind the wheel before your CDL skills and driving test. Alongside that, you’ll have an experienced instructor to review your performance and teach you the skills you need to pass the CDL test on your first try.
After learning from our instructors, you’ll need to schedule an exam appointment at a state DPS office that offers CDL exams. At your appointment, you’ll be required to take and pass the CDL driving test in order to qualify for your CDL.
To this test, you’ll also need to have an appropriate rental truck. Your rental from CDL Truck services includes a testing rental.
At CDL Truck Services, we’ll do everything in our power to situate you for a successful CDL driving test. We’ll give you the tools and help you learn how to use them. Contact us today to learn more or schedule an appointment for your CDL truck rental.
