  • CDL - Commercial Driver's License THEORY

    Driving a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) requires a higher level of knowledge, experience, skills, and physical abilities than that required to drive a non-commercial vehicle. In order to obtain a Commercial Driver's License (CDL), an applicant must pass both skills and knowledge testing geared to these higher standards. This class will provide the classroom portion of the CDL endorsement steps. In this course you have the opportunity to learn the basic operation of a CDL vehicle, pre-trip inspection, safe operating procedures, advance operating procedures, vehicle systems and malfunctions, and non-driving activities. Class time will include CDL simulator time. This is a very reading and classwork intensive class. A licensed instructor will be available for assistance, questions and to implement simulator time. Students do NOT need to be present at all scheduled hours of the class periods, but may attend all hours if needed or desired. Students ARE required to attend the first day of class to get registered and to obtain all course material. At that time, you can decide what hours you will attend in person. After students complete their ELDT (Entry Level Driver's Training), you will need to complete behind the wheel independently. No behind the wheel training will be given as part of this class. Resources for this will be shared by the instructor. If your future includes needing a CDL endorsement, this course not only helps you gain the knowledge you will need to become licensed, but will save you a significant amount of money. Requirements to register for this class: 18 years or older by April 29th Hold a current class 'D' or higher MN driver's license Ability to pass clean D.O.T. drug test at time of licensing Computer or similar and internet access (if you do not have access, instructor will accommodate your needs - please answer questions uring enrollment process)
