Truck driving schools in Alabama are located throughout the state including Montgomery, Sumiton, Northport, Tuscaloosa, and Opelika. Alabama truck driving schools offer the necessary education and training needed to obtain your commercial driver's license (CDL). To obtain your CDL, you must be at least 18 years old (21 years old to haul across state lines), have a valid driver's license and pass a medical examination. In addition, you need to take a general knowledge test and practical skills tests according to the class of license you need. Finally, additional knowledge and skills tests may be required for specific endorsements--for example, if you want to drive a bus or haul hazardous materials.
