The demand for truck drivers is increasing. Driving a school bus, passenger vehicle, dump truck, freight carrying truck, or being licensed to tow a double or triple trailer could be yours, but you must first pass the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) knowledge exam and obtain your CDL Commercial Learners Permit (CLP). Whether you want to drive statewide, regionally, across the country or stay close to home, passing the CDL knowledge exam is the first step to a new career.
