To earn a CDL license in South Carolina, all candidates must be at least 18 years old (21 years old for interstate driving) and pass both a written knowledge exam and a skills test. The three part skills test includes a pre-trip vehicle inspection, a basic control test and an on-road driving exam.

A truck driving school in South Carolina will prepare you to pass these examinations.
