Truck driving schools in New York are numerous and may be found throughout the state with hotspots in Albany, Brooklyn, Bronx, New Rochelle, West Babylon and Buffalo. New York truck driving schools offer the necessary education and training needed to gain your CDL license. To earn a CDL license in New York, you must be at least 18 years old for a Class B or C license, have proof of residency and pass a medical examination. For a Class C license or to transport across state lines, you must be at least 21 years old. CDL applicants must then pass a written exam and a skills test, which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection and an on-road driving exam. The skills test must be taken in a vehicle that matches the class of license you wish to obtain. Additional endorsements may be needed depending on the type of truck you wish to drive--for example, to drive a truck with air brakes, tankers, double/triple trailers or to drive a passenger or school bus. To transport hazardous materials (Hazmat), you must be at least 21 years old, pass an additional knowledge exam, and pass a background check by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
