Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP)
A Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) is a permit from your state of residence that allows you to practice your driving skills in a commercial vehicle. Obtaining a CLP is one of the first things you need to do before beginning training behind the wheel for the skills test.
Must be at least 18 years old. Must hold a non-commercial driver's license. To obtain a Class A or B commercial permit, you need a class driver's license without authorization status. Present proof of citizenship or lawful residency, birth certificate, valid passport, and right to work documents approved by homeland security credentials, including a green card. Communicate efficiently in English.
CLP must be acquired before beginning at a Trucking School.
