Do I need an appointment to take the PA CDL test? Pennsylvania
Making an Appointment for Your CDL TestYou must pass a minimum of two tests - knowledge and skills - to obtain a Pennsylvania commercial license. Depending on your CDL class, you may be required to pass additional tests. Whether you need an appointment depends on the exam.
CDL Knowledge Test
You do not need an appointment for the general knowledge test. Appear, when you're ready, at any PA Driver License Center.
Study the state's CDL manual to pass. The entire test is based on information explained in the manual. You can collect a copy, at no charge, from any PennDOT Driver License Center. Or, save time and gas by downloading one from the PennDOT's website.
After studying the manual, you'll next want to try at least one CDL practice test. These CDL practice tests, which can be found online, feature similar questions to those found on the actual PennDOT test.
CDL Skills Test
After obtaining your permit, you must wait 15 days before taking the driving test. You must make an appointment road test, and you can do this online, from the PennDOT website. You will need your eight-digit driver number, found on your license, to register online. You may also schedule an appointment by calling (800) 932-4600.
Check the CDL manual on what to expect for the road test, which consists of three parts: pre trip inspection, driving skills and road test. Pass this test you'll become a licensed CDL driver.
