  • You must be a US citizen or non-US citizen with a valid Permanent Resident Card.
  • You must provide proof of US citizenship or lawful permanent residency.
  • You must provide a 10-year driver history report. You will have to request this report from the District of Columbia department of motor vehicles in any state that has issued you a license in the past 10 years. DC DMV checks driving history in all 50 states.
NOTE: District of Columbia CDL learner permits may only have the following endorsements (with additional restrictions): S - School Bus, N - Tank and P - Passenger. You are not eligible to apply for a DC DMV CDL if you:
