Truck Driving Schools in Oklahoma

There are a number of state and federal requirements before a person can apply for a Commercial Driver’s License, also known as a CDL in Oklahoma. One must have a CDL to drive a vehicle that weights more than 26,001 pounds, with a purpose to transport more than 16 persons, which carries hazardous materials, or vehicles that require toxic materials. Those who want to operate commercial vehicles in the state must be 18 years old, or  21 to drive interstate (which is driving outside of Oklahoma).

There are many schools which can help you prepare for the knowledge and driving exams. They will provide time behind the wheel and some will provide you with job placement services upon completion.

While operating a tractor trailer rig these requirements must be met to ensure the safety of all drivers on the road:

Age Requirements:

Drivers who wish to drive within Oklahoma can apply for a CDL once they receive 18 years old. If you plan to drive interstate, then you must be at least 21 years of age.

Medical Certification:

Both new and renewing CDL applicants must undergo a physical exam conducted by a DOT medical examiner. A medical certificate will be issued upon passing the physical exam.

Supporting Documents:

All applicants must provide a form of identification that clearly shows the applicant’s name and date of birth. Examples of acceptable IDs include a passport, birth certificate, driver’s license from another state, or Military ID. Additional documents will be required in the event that the applicant changed his/her name.


After meeting the requirements and submitting the completed application form, the next step is to schedule for the written exams. Applicants must pass the vision test before they can take the written knowledge exam. Reading the CDL manual, which can be downloaded from the Department of Safety’s website, will help applicants prepare for the written exam. Additional tests will be given for each endorsement to drive a specialized vehicle.

If you pass the written exam, you will be given a Learner’s Permit. Use this permit to practice driving a truck while under the supervision of a registered driver. Schedule your road test when you feel that you are ready to take it. You must schedule your test while your permit is still valid. The road test will consist of a pre-trip inspection, basic driving skills, and on-road testing. The DP will issue your CDL within a few days after passing all three parts.

If you want to submit a CDL training school to this list you can do so through the contact form located here. To be considered for inclusion on this page business listings must have the name of the company, address and phone number.
