    GETTING STARTED

    Call your local highway patrol office and find out when and where they give the written test for the commercial driver's license. Go and take the test for your class A or B with air brakes permit.

    For a class A, you will need to test on your general knowledge, air brakes, and combination. Once you have passed your written test, go to the DMV and pay for your permit.

    For a class B, you will need to test on your general knowledge and air brakes. Once you have passed your written test, go to the DMV and pay for your permit.

    They will issue you a paper permit while you wait for your hard copy permit. You must wait 14 days after you pay for your permit to take your driving exam(pre-trip,skills,and road test).

    Once you have your hard copy permit, or your paper print out of your permit, call OZARK CDL at 573-308-2350 to schedule your appointment. Arrive at our testing site on time with your permit and driver's license. With the assistance program we will go through all reviews which include: pre-trip, basic skills, and road.



    Your testing time is usually in the afternoon, which we will send a qualified person to accompany you and the test truck to the Highway Patrol Testing Site(Rolla, Mo). Once you have passed your driving test, take your test scores to your local DMV.

    Congratulations, you now have your commercial driver's license!





    THE CDL TEST HAS 3 PARTS

    1. Pre-trip Inspection - You will be tested to see if you know your vehicle is safe to drive. You will be asked to do a pre-trip inspection of your vehicle and explain to the examiner what you would inspect and why.

    2.Basic Vehicle Control - You will be tested on your skill to control the vehicle. You will be asked to move your vehicle forward, backward, and turn within a defined area. These areas may be marked with traffic lanes, cones, barriers, or something similar. The examiner will tell you how each control test is to be done.

    We have a skills lot set up so you will be able to practice all maneuvers and become familiar with our truck.

    3. On-Road Test - You will be tested on your skill to safely drive your vehicle in a variety of traffic situations. The situations may include left and right turns, intersections, railway crossings, curves, up and down grades, single or multi-lane roads, streets, or highways.

    The examiner will tell you where to drive. In our program, you will be able to drive the actual test route that the Highway Patrol will take you on so you are familiar with all the roads, stops and turns.
