Truck Driving Schools in Mississippi

Getting a Commercial Driver’s License in Mississippi proves that you are eligible to operate commercial truck vehicles. A CDL can only be obtained by meeting several state and federal requirements such as passing a written knowledge exam and an on-road skills test. This is to ensure safety for those who are on the road.

Unlike most states, one can already apply for a driver’s license at the age of 17. However, those who wish to drive interstate must still be 21 years or older. The State of Mississippi also requires CDL applicants to pass a DOT medical examination, which will be done by a DOT accredited medical professional.

The first step in obtaining a CDL in Mississippi is to read the state’s Professional Driver’s Manual, which can be acquired at any local DMV office. This manual contains all necessary information about truck driving and about the areas where applicants will be tested on. After studying, you can then proceed to your nearest DMV office and schedule a date for the written exam.

When you pass the written exam, you will be given a temporary CDL permit that will allow you to practice driving a commercial truck while under the supervision of a licensed driver. If you feel that you have enough experience, you can then schedule for a road skills test. This test consists of a pre-trip inspection, basic driving skills, and actual on-road test. You must pass all parts to get a CDL.
