Truck driving schools in Wisconsin are located throughout the state with hotspots in Eau Claire, Sun Prairie, Appleton, and Marshfield. Wisconsin truck driving schools may provide you with the training needed to earn your commercial driver's license (CDL). To earn a CDL license in Wisconsin, you must be at least 18 years old (21 years old for interstate driving), have a valid driver's license and pass a medical examination. CDL applicants must also pass a general knowledge exam and a practical driving test, which includes a pre-trip inspection, a basic control skills test, and an on-road driving test. Depending on the class of license and endorsements you need, other knowledge and skills exams may be required--for example, to drive a combination vehicle, a tanker truck, a truck with air brakes or to transport passengers. Wisconsin truck driving schools offer the training you need to pass your written exam, as well as the road test.
