Truck Driving Schools in Maine

Anyone who wants to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) in Maine must be at least 18 years old and be able to meet a few criteria. If an applicant wishes to obtain an interstate CDL, then he or she must be 21 years or older. Applicants must have a valid driver’s license without any DUI convictions within the past 2 years. A Maine CDL application can either be obtained online or from any office of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Applicants must complete the application and pay the corresponding fees. Fees include a $35 testing charge, $10 per endorsement change, and the license fee itself.

All applicants will be required to take and pass the general knowledge test. A separate test is given for specific endorsements such as air brakes, school buses, and Class A combinations. To ensure that applicants are able to drive well, they must undergo a vision screening which will be conducted by an eye specialist. After passing the written examinations, those who pass will be issued an Instruction Permit and a Skills Test Request card. This permit is valid for 18 months, or 12 months for school buses. This permit will allow an applicant to drive a commercial truck with the supervision of a licensed driver. The supervising driver must be at least 20 years old or older.

When the applicant feels that he/she has gained enough practical experience, then he/she can complete the Skills Test Request card and mail it to Augusta. Applicants will be informed of the time, date, and location of the road driving test. A vehicle of the appropriate class must be provided by each applicant. The test will cover pre-trip inspection, basic driving skills, and driving under various traffic conditions. If the evaluator finds the applicant capable of driving, then he/she will be given a CDL after paying the corresponding fees.
