Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Preparation Class

The commercial driver’s license (CDL) was mandated by federal legislation and required that drivers of large vehicles, buses, trailers, etc. be tested before issuance of the new license. CCRI developed, in collaboration with the state registry of motor vehicles, a preparation course that nearly 20,000 truck drivers have taken since its inception. The course includes information that will prepare you for each of the mandated tests.

Please see our CWCE Brochure for course details.
