Truck driving schools in North Dakota offer the necessary education and training needed to gain your CDL license. To obtain a CDL in North Dakota, you must be at least 18 years old (21 years old to drive across state lines), pass a vision test 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. Additional endorsements may be needed depending on the type of vehicle you wish to drive and/or the type of material to be transported. For example, additional knowledge exams are needed to drive a truck with a tanker, air brakes or double/triple trailers or to transport passengers or hazardous materials. To transport hazardous materials, a background check by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is also required. North Dakota truck driving schools will prepare you to pass these examinations.
