Where can I get a CDL driver manual or drivers handbook?

Obtaining a CDL Drivers Handbook

That varies depending on where you reside.

Many states make the CDL drivers manual available online through their DMV site. This provides easy access to the material you'll need to know to pass your CDL test. The downside, though, is that if you prefer printing out the handbook for studying purposes, you'll be facing a lengthy download and use a lot of paper as these manuals are large.

Almost all states allow you to pick up the manual in person. Most make the CDL handbook available through their full-service driver's license offices; or, if not there, at other DMV locations.

And, some states permit you to order the book by phone or through the mail. You may need to pay a nominal shipping fee, however. Check with your state's main driver's license division for more information.

Inside the Drivers Handbook

It goes without saying that, in addition to a CDL practice test, the drivers handbook is an ideal study tool for your written exam, and the information you learn from the book can also help you once it's time to take the road test portion of your CDL driving test.

However, the CDL manual also contains other facts you must know about gaining your commercial license, including the difference between each CDL class, endorsement options, and even your medical exam requirements.

So, the sooner you obtain your CDL handbook, the earlier you can start your journey to become a CDL driver.
