Many changes became effective July 8, 2015. Some of them are:
1. An individual MUST PASS ALL required Written Tests BEFORE a CDL Learners Permit can be issued.
2. A Commercial Learners Permit (CLP), MUST be issued and held for a MINIMUM of 14 Days BEFORE an individual can be tested with the truck or tractor/trailer.
3. An individual will be restricted on a CDL based upon the type of vehicle used for testing.
4. The PRE-TRIP INSPECTION Portion of the Testing IS MUCH MORE DIFFICULT!!!
5. To be issued a CLP or a CDL for the first time, an individual MUST provide Proof of Citizenship or Legal Presence.
