maine CDL License Test Tips

To obtain a Maine CDL and any special endorsements individuals must take one or more knowledge tests. To get a Class A, B, and C commercial driver’s license you must pass a 50 question general knowledge test relating to commercial driving. Class A applicants will need to answer an additional 20 questions about combination driving. When an applicant is seeking endorsements, they will be required to complete one additional knowledge test per endorsement. Tank Vehicle, Doubles, Triples, and Passenger Endorsements all have 20 questions assessments. School Bus Endorsements and Air Brake Restriction Removals require a 25 question test.

Once an applicant passes all necessary knowledge tests, they will be required to complete a skills test. This tests the applicant’s knowledge of hands on driving experience, vehicle inspection, and basic vehicle control. All applicants applying for Passenger Transport and School Bus Endorsements as well as removal of the Air Brakes Restriction must pass an additional skills test.
