Why Take This CDL General Knowledge Practice Test?
You will be required to take a written knowledge test (try our CDL general knowledge practice test). Once you pass this test, you will be required to drive with another CDL licensed driver and practice driving on the road for at least 14 days.
The cost of getting your CDL will vary depending on the state you live in. On average, obtaining a learner’s permit will cost around $25. To get your full CDL license, fees will range from $50 to $200. While this might seem like a lot of money, the income you will receive in the future will make it worth the money.
There are three types of CDL classes that determine the type of vehicle you may drive and how much you may tow. A Class A CDL class allows you to operate a vehicle with a GCWR of 26,001 if the vehicle you tow weighs more than 10,000 and a Class B CDL allows you to operate a vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds or operate any vehicle towing another vehicle that weighs less than 10,000 GVWR. With a Class C CDL, you can operate a Class C vehicle that transports hazardous materials.
