CDL UPGRADE INFO

If you already have a CDL and are wanting to upgrade

from a Class B to a Class A, or want to have a restriction removed from your current CDL, (such as the fifth wheel restriction or manual transmission) you must take the entire CDL Skills & Road Test again.  This means:

1) You will need to get a permit

2) Wait 14 days after getting your permit to take the test

---------------------

There are minimum training requirements being implemented by DOL for certain upgrades.  

 

---------------------

You will also need to request authorization to test with a third party examiner after your training is complete by calling or email DOL: 

 

360-902-3785

 

 CDLSkillsTest@dol.wa.gov

Your appointment cannot be finalized until DOL gives authorization in their system, so this step is very important.
