Class C CDL Test
Shift gears to a new career in the field of commercial driving by achieving your Class C CDL. You’ve learned quite a bit during the time you’ve had your commercial learner’s permit, but you’re ready to take and pass the Class C CDL test. With a Class C CDL, you can operate commercial vehicles that aren’t in Class A or B. Examples of Class C vehicles include passenger vans, hazardous materials vehicle and other motor vehicles not classified under Class A or B.

To qualify for a Class C CDL, you need to be at least 18 years of age, pass a physical examination and a vision test. On your exam day, be sure to bring a valid form of ID, your Social Security card and documentation that you passed the vision and medical tests.
