maryland CDL License Test Tips

Knowledge tests are required to receive Class A, B, and C CDLs and endorsements. All applicants must take a 50 question test and pass with a score of 40 or higher to receive their CDL permit. Those applying for a Class A license must take a 70 question test, with 20 of the questions pertaining directly to combination vehicles. All endorsements require their own specific examination that has been 20 and 30 questions. All assessments must be passed with a score of 80 or higher.

Each applicant is required to complete a three-section skills assessment. This assessment is comprised of a vehicle inspection, driving test, and basic control test. To pass the skills portion of the CDL assessment, applicants must successfully show their knowledge in all three areas. Those seeking vehicle-specific endorsements must take the skills test in that specific type of vehicle they want the endorsement for.
