Do I need an appointment to take the GA CDL test? Georgia

Obtaining Your Georgia Commercial License

To obtain your GA commercial drivers license (CDL), you will need to complete an application available on the Department of Driver Services (DDS) website, pay the appropriate fees, and pass two tests: a knowledge test and a driving test.

You don't need an appointment for the knowledge test. All DDS Customer Service Centers (except the one in Jackson) offers them, and the centers are open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. All you have to do is make sure you arrive in enough time to begin the test by 4:15 p.m.

However, you do need an appointment for the road test, and can only get one at the following Customer Service Centers:

  • Albany
  • Dalton
  • Gainesville
  • Jackson
  • Milledgeville
  • Thomson
Call (678) 413-8500 to schedule your appointment and pay the $50 fee by credit card.

Gain Some CDL Practice

The CDL test is comprehensive and specific to truck driving and commercial driving, so it's a good idea to study and prepare in advance. As a future CDL driver, take the time to educate yourself by signing up for a CDL class, taking a CDL practice test online, and obtaining some formal skills training from an approved truck driving school or academy before your driving test.

Check the DDS website for appropriate links and references.
