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.
