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.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR COMMERCIAL LEARNER’S PERMIT
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.
The DOT Health Card is an important part of the medical document when driving a commercial vehicle. In order to keep the driver on the road, it is often necessary to help the driver get a physical Department of Transportation (DOT) card and a DOT health card as soon as possible. Scheduling a DOT test in a regular clinic can take days or weeks.
If applying for a Commercial Drivers License, the first step would be to acquire a Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP) at your local DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles).
To acquire the permit, a few tests are required at the DMV.
