Truck driving schools in Houston will provide you with the knowledge and training needed to obtain a Texas commercial driver's license (CDL). In Texas, CDL candidates must be at least 18 years old (21 to haul materials across state lines), have a valid driver’s license and obtain a medical certificate. CDL requirements also include a general knowledge exam and a driving test. For the driving portion of the CDL exam, applicants must test in the same class of vehicle for which they would like to obtain a CDL.
Endorsements are needed to drive a truck with air brakes, a tanker truck, a truck with double / triple trailers, a school bus or to haul hazardous materials or passengers. Additional knowledge and skills tests may be required to obtain these endorsements. A Houston truck driving school will prepare you to pass these examinations.
