Truck driving schools in North Carolina may be found throughout the state, particularly around larger cities and towns, such as Raleigh, Wilmington, and Charlotte. North Carolina truck driving schools may provide you with the training needed to earn your commercial driver's license (CDL). To obtain a CDL license in North Carolina, you must be 18 years old (21 for interstate driving), be a resident of North Carolina and obtain a medical certificate. CDL applicants must then pass a written knowledge exam and a skills test, which includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic control skills test, and an on-road driving exam. Depending on the class of license and endorsements you need, other knowledge and skills tests may be required--for example, to drive a combination vehicle, a school bus, a tanker truck, a truck with air brakes or to transport passengers. To transport hazardous materials (Hazmat), an additional knowledge exam and a background check by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are required. North Carolina truck driving schools will prepare you to pass these examinations.
