What is a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and why do we use the term “Class A?” In the past, all drivers with a traditional driver’s license could operate a tractor-trailer and carry freight across the country. The Commercial Motor Vehicle Act of 1986 required truck drivers to certify they are competent drivers by getting a CDL. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration defines them as:
If you’re looking to be a driver in the trucking industry, then the Class A CDL is the one you’ll need. Without it, you won’t be able to move goods and necessities across state lines in a tractor-trailer.
Because regulations and requirements change over time, the best way to ensure you satisfy all CDL requirements is to check with a Roadmaster representative or your local Georgia DMV.
If this all sounds like a lot to think about, don’t worry! Roadmaster is here to help you through process of earning your Class A CDL, from obtaining your CDL permit to applying to trucking jobs.

Thankfully, you won’t have to get your CDL permit before you arrive to classes. Roadmaster will assist you in obtaining a CDL permit in Georgia shortly after the course begins.
