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: 



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