Truck driving schools in Oregon are mainly located in cities along Interstate 5 (I-5) including Medford, Eugene, Hillsboro, Beaverton and Portland. Oregon truck driving schools offer the necessary education and training needed to gain your CDL. To obtain a CDL in Oregon, you must have a valid driver’s license, be at least 18 years old (21 years old for interstate trucking) and pass both a written knowledge exam and a skills test. The three part skills test includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic vehicle control test, and an on-road driving test. 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. Oregon truck driving schools will prepare you to pass these examinations.
