Get Your Temporary CDL License
You can get a manual about the steps you need to take to get a CDL in Ohio at your local DMV. In this manual, you will find practice test questions and answers to help you study up for the exam. If you are pursuing a Class A CDL, expect to familiarize yourself with general knowledge questions about truck driving, along with several questions about air brakes and combination vehicles.
It’s likely that you’ll need to make an appointment to take the written test for your temporary CDL. Please be specific when making this appointment and indicate if you are applying for a class A, B, or C license and indicate any endorsements that you will be applying for as well.
You also need to complete an eye test to see if you have good enough vision to be a licensed driver. You can take the written portion of the exam in Ohio up to four times. You need to score 80% or higher to pass. You will then get your temporary license.
Take the CDL Exam
You only have to wait two weeks before you can try to pass the CDL exam in Ohio, however, it’s highly recommended that you undergo truck driving training first. This will allow you to practice both written portions of the test and the behind the wheel test. Once you’re done with your training, you can set up an appointment to take the skills test. Should you pass, you can go to a DMV within 10 days to get your CDL.
