 CDL Written Test                                Help to Pass


  Driving a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) requires a higher level of knowledge, experience, skills,    and physical abilities. In order to obtain a Commercial Driver's License (CDL), an applicant must        pass both knowledge and skills testing geared to these higher standards. Driving a commercial          motor vehicle is a big responsibility. A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is different than a personal   passenger license. Commercial vehicles being a larger size are quite different from driving a small     car or truck.

  Getting a CDL involves several steps. There are knowledge and skills testing ,medical requirements   and residency requirements. We help people from all over the state of Texas to begin their written      test to obtain a CDL - Commercial Driver License. In the box above you will find the commercial         driver handbook just click on cdl manual and you can download, bookmark, or study from here. You   can also go to your local drivers license office and get a copy. In this book you will find information      on what it takes to pass the test in order to drive a commercial  motor vehicle (CMV).  

 The first step is to study the required sections of the Texas Commercial Drivers Handbook, required   for the type of CDL you wish to obtain. There are three classes of Commercial driver license.                       
 1.) Class A CDL - Tractor, Trailer Combination. - With a GVWR of 26,001 pounds or more if the               GVWR of the vehicle(s) towed exceeds 10,000 pounds. 

 2.) Class B CDL - Bus, Dump Truck, etc. - Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 pounds or              more, or a Vehicle designed to transport 24 passengers or more including the driver

 3.) Class C CDL - Any Single or Combination not included in a class A or Class B - With a GVWR of       less than 26,001 pounds towing a farm trailer with a GVWR that does not exceed 20,000                    pounds.
