Truck Driving Schools in Virginia

To apply for a commercial driver’s license in Virginia, you must be at least 18 years old to meet the requirements for a regular driver’s license. If you wish to drive a commercial truck carrying hazardous materials, or haul interstate freight within the state, then you must be a 21 years or older. Obtaining a CDL in this state mainly involves passing physical and visual tests, written exams, and skills tests.

After submitting the required paperwork at the local DMV office, applicants will be required to undergo a visual test. Applicants who pass will be allowed to take the General Knowledge test. Additional exams will be given to applicants who wish to have endorsements on their CDL. An endorsement will allow a holder to perform additional tasks such as transporting hazardous materials, passengers, or drive a combination of commercial vehicles.

Applicants who pass the written tests will be issued a temporary instructional permit. This permit is needed to take the skills exam. CDL applicants may only apply for the skills exam 30 days after receiving this permit. The skills exam consists of a pre-trip inspection, basic skills demonstration, and on-road testing. Applicants must pass all three parts to receive a truck driving license in Virginia.
