How do I apply for a FL CDL driver permit? Florida

In order to undergo behind-the-wheel training with a third-party truck driving education company in Florida, you'll probably need to have a CDL learners permit. These permits are free and valid for 180 days, which should give you the practice required to pass your commercial license road tests.

Now, to get your drivers permit, you must pass the CDL written tests at your FL driver's license office. After doing so, you'll be granted your CDL permit. This applies no matter what CDL class license you're interested in obtaining. With a CDL permit, you must drive with a current CDL driver.

When you've completed your training, you can make an appointment to take the necessary skills test and receive your CDL.

Take a CDL Practice Test

It's tough to pass your written CDL test on your first attempt; however, taking a few CDL practice tests can greatly improve your chances. Doing so makes it easier to recall the information you must know on testing day, and it also helps highlight the areas you might need to study in more detail.

Contact the FL driver's license department at (850) 617-2000 for more information about your CDL drivers permit test or learners permit test.
