Truck driving schools in Florida are located throughout the state, from Jacksonville in the north to Miami in the south. Florida truck driving schools focus on the skills and knowledge needed to earn a CDL license. Basic eligibility requirements include: you must be 18 years old (21 years old for interstate travel), physically fit, and have a valid driver's license. To gain your CDL license you must pass a general knowledge exam and three part skills test, which includes an on-road driving test. In addition, you may have to pass other knowledge and skills tests depending on the class of CDL license and the endorsements you need--for example, to drive a vehicle with air brakes, a tanker, a school bus or to haul hazardous materials.
