CDL training at Roadmaster specializes in teaching the necessary skills to begin driving a truck professionally. Our truck driving school will provide students with both the hands on training and cdl knowledge needed to properly and safely operate a truck.
Roadmaster is highly respected among CDL training schools, because for over twenty years we have proudly trained thousands of great truck drivers to make a living driving a truck! We are committed to helping future truckers pass the CDL knowledge and skills tests and get their new career on the road in as few as 3 weeks!
Drivers of Commercial Motor Vehicles must adhere to the hours of service, which are regulations governing the driving hours of commercial drivers. These, and all other rules regarding the safety of interstate commercial driving, are issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The FMCSA is also a division of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), which governs all transportation-related industries such as trucking, shipping, railroads, and airlines. Some other issues are handled by another branch of the USDOT, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
States are able to issue a CDL License only after a written and driving test have been given by the state or approved testing facility. The minimum age to apply for a CDL license is usually 21, as required by the US Department of Transportation, although some states may allow drivers who are 18-20 to apply for a CDL that is valid only within the Drivers state of residence. A single state CDL license only restricts driving of CMVs within the holder's state (not non-commercial vehicles), and automatically converts to a 50 state CDL license at the age of 21.
Since April of 1992, all drivers have been required to have a CDL in order to drive a Commercial Motor Vehicle. Tractor-trailers require advanced skills and knowledge above and beyond those required to drive a car or other light weight vehicle.
