Steps to Get Your CDL

If you’re interested in a career in the trucking industry and want to get your CDL, follow these exact steps so you won’t have any delays. These are the steps I took to get my Class A CDL. 🪪

The first thing you need to do is study for the CDL. Download the DMV study guide from their website. I also recommend downloading the CDL prep app. It’s free and has the same questions as the DMV test. When you are ready to take the air brake and knowledge test, make a DMV appointment. Before your appointment you’ll need a DOT physical from an urgent care. Not all urgent cares offer DOT physicals, so call and find out which one does. They are generally $100 for a medical certificate. When your DMV appointment arrives, take your birth certificate, ID, medical certificate, and two utility bills that prove you live at your residence. ✅

After passing your test you’ll receive a Class A permit and you can either pay $3,000 to enroll in trucking school which is 27 courses 1 hour each course, or you can apply for a trucking company that will provide paid training. Takes around 2-4 months to get your CDL from start to finish depending on the pace you set for yourself. Any other questions feel free to ask. ✅

How to get a California CDL

Here’s a YouTube video on how to get a Class A if you’re interested in getting into the trucking industry. Although federal guidelines make most regulations mandatory across the board, some states may have a different process so be sure to research your state. 🪪

Here are the steps in a nutshell:

  1. DOT Physical ✅

  2. Written Test ✅

  3. Obtain Permit ✅

  4. Enroll in Trucking School or Get Employed by a Carrier will to provide paid training. ✅

  5. Schedule DMV Appointment for Skills and Road Test. ✅

  6. Obtain CDL. ✅

These are the 6 steps that I took to get my Class A. In this video the trucker mentions she didn’t know you needed a DOT physical to get a permit. That also happened to me so I had to reschedule my DMV appointment delaying the process. I couldn’t even take the exam without providing my medical certificate. Other documents I needed were my Birth Certificate, Driver’s License, Social Security Card, Two Utility Bills or Proof of Residency. ✅

The process also took my 3 months because of delays such as Covid. I also recommend that you don’t take any of the endorsements until after you get your CDL. 🚛

Any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to drop a comment. ⤵️

Free Trucking School in California

Here’s a video of a YouTuber providing a step by step process on how to get trucking school paid for by the state of California. 🚛

Trucking school cost me $3,000 in Los Angeles, so I know this information could be very helpful with someone wanting to start a career in the trucking industry. ✅

If you can’t afford to pay for trucking school and don’t want to sign an employment contract with a carrier, this is another avenue you may want to take advantage of. I’m pretty sure most states have this resource, so I highly recommend calling your local unemployment office to find out if paid trucking school is available in your region. ☎️

Questions, comments, or concerns; feel free to drop a comment. ⤵️

Parallel Parking a Semi-Truck

Here’s a parallel parking demonstration of what a DMV skills test looks like. I failed my alley dock parking the first try, but my second try I was able to pass this parallel park. Trucking school prepares you for all skills and driving test and they go over it with you until you get it right. If you’re interested in getting a CDL, I recommend watching this video. 🚛🪪
