To obtain your Commercial Drivers License (CDL), you must first pass the Iowa CDL Tests that apply to the type of commercial trucks or buses that you will be driving. The CDL Tests include a General Knowledge written examination
that everyone must pass, regardless of their particular Class of License,
ie: Class A, Class B, or Class C. There are also (7) seven additional CDL Tests covering endorsements including Combination Vehicles, Doubles
and Triples, Air Brakes, Passenger Vehicles, School Bus, Hazardous Materials
and Tank Vehicles. You only have to pass the CDL Tests that apply to your vehicle/load requirements. You will also be given a three-part Driving
Skills Test, including a Vehicle Pre-trip Inspection, Vehicle Control
and Road Test in a representative-type vehicle.
The Congress of the United States enacted The Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986 (CMVSA/86) administered by the FMCSA which requires that all of the individual states conduct uniform testing and licensing standards for all commercial drivers. It also established uniform standards for qualification, suspensions, and revocation. It requires that no commercial vehicle operator may possess more than one license. That license MUST BE ISSUED FROM THE DRIVER'S STATE OF LEGAL RESIDENCE. Therefore, if you are a resident of Iowa, you MUST obtain a Iowa CDL. Our Course covers the specific Iowa CDL procedures.
Don't keep putting it off.
