Do I need an appointment to take the NJ CDL test? New Jersey

It depends on which part of the NJ CDL test you're taking.

No Appointment Knowledge Test

No appointment is necessary for the knowledge test. Visit any New Jersey MVC office to take the exam. You must answer 80% of the test's 50 questions correctly.

Grab a New Jersey CDL manual to study for the CDL test. Each CDL driver can obtain a manual from any MVC office, or by downloading from the MVC's website. All of the test questions are based on information found in the manual. After studying, gauge your test-readiness by taking CDL practice test. You can find CDL practice exams online from a variety of websites.

If you fail the test, you must wait seven days before taking it again. If you pass, you must hold your CDL for 20 days before you can take the driving test.

Appointment Road Test

You must make a driving test appointment in person at any MVC Driver Testing Center. This cannot be done online.

The driving test is the last hurdle in obtaining a New Jersey commercial license. The CDL test consists of three parts:

  1. Pre-trip inspection
  2. Basic vehicle control
  3. Roadway operations

If you fail the driving test for your CDL class, you must wait two weeks before taking it again.
