CDL applicants must then pass a written knowledge exam and a skills test, which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic control test, and an on-road driving exam. Additional endorsements are needed to drive a truck with air brakes, tankers, double/triple trailers or to drive a passenger or school bus.
