Commercial driving is exciting, challenging, and can be dangerous.
To make the highways safer for the diving public and to protect the enormous investment in equipment and cargo, drivers are subject to stringent professional standards which include drug testing and special license requirements.
Commercial driving is regulated through the U.S. Department of Transportation and by the laws of the state which you reside in conformity with Federal Commercial Driver's License Laws.
So what does it take to drive a commercial motor vehicle?
- You have to be at least 21 years old to drive cargo across a state border (interstate.)
- You have to pass the D.O.T. Physical and a Drug Screen Test.
- You need a currently valid commercial motor vehicle operator license or permit which is not suspended or revoked and an acceptable driving record.
- You have to read, speak and write English well enough to pass the commercial Driver's License test and do your job: Converse with the general public, understand highway signs and signals, respond to official questions, and make entries on reports and records.
