Licensure Requirements

Students who successfully complete a course or program requirements for CDL A or B will be eligible to test for CDL licensure as set by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) regulations. Though each state sets requirements for students taking the exam in that state, they must by federal regulation accept testing done in any state that complies with the federal regulation.
