Colorado CDL Testing is now administered through third-party testing centers. Our school is licensed by the State of Colorado Compliance to provide third party testing. Here’s everything you need to know before scheduling and taking your CDL test.
We administer CDL tests at both our Denver and Colorado Springs locations.
If you want to take the CDL test but don’t need training, our Denver and Colorado Springs locations are open for outside CDL testing Monday through Saturday.
The commercial driver’s license (CDL) is made up of three parts, a pre-trip test, basic skills test, and a road test. More information about the test can be found in Sections 11, 12, and 13 of the Colorado CDL Manual. It is important to look over this information so that you know exactly what you will be tested on.
You will need to bring your DOT card, your valid vehicle driver’s license which cannot be punched or expired, and your CDL Permit.
If you take a test on a vehicle with an automatic transmission, there will be an ‘E’ restriction placed on your CDL license. This means you will only be allowed to drive an automatic transmission vehicle. If you don’t want any restrictions, you will need to take the test on a vehicle with a manual transmission, there will be no automatic transmission restriction placed on your CDL license.
