New York CDL Practice Test Prep Program

Getting Started . . .

NY cdl clp, NY clp Getting a New York CLP (Commercial Learner's Permit) involves several steps. There are medical requirements and residency requirements besides knowledge and skills requirements.
  • The first step is to get a free copy of the New York CDL Manual - NY CDL Handbook. The New York manual is available in the New York field locations, downloaded from the New York website and printed. New York has its own process to get your New York CLP (Commercial Learner's Permit).
  • The second step is to decide which type of vehicle and what kind of driving you want to get the CDL for.
  • There are 3 classes of New York CDLs with endorsements for specialized qualifications for vehicles like school buses, tank trucks, tractor trailers, etc. Each types of New York CLP (Commercial Learner's Permit) and endorsement requires you pass a skills test and in some cases a written test. It is important to make sure you pass all the required tests or risk having restrictions on your license.
Once you've finished getting informed and making decisions, there are two basic steps to getting a New York CDL:

Step 1: Get the New York Commercial Learners Permit (NY CLP)

A New York Commercial Learners Permit (NY CLP) is a permit that only authorizes you to practice on public roads with a qualified New York CDL holder sitting next to you. Getting the permit involves more than just passing all the knowledge tests for the type of driving you want to do. To make sure that you are eligible your driving record is checked for the last 10 years in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. You need to bring in the proof that your state accepts to show that you are medically qualified. Most types of commercial driving require a DOT medical card, requiring a DOT physical. Your state may require specific documents it wants to see to prove your name and proof of residency. There are fees for getting the New York CLP. Reading and following the instructions found in the specific New York CDL Information will streamline the process.

Step 2: Get the New York Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

You are required to possess the New York CLP for 14 days before taking the Skills Test. Some states require the successful completion of New York CDL training prior to testing. Regardless, it is highly recommended that you practice the inspection tests and maneuvers in the New York CDL Manual that you will be tested on with a qualified individual before showing up for the test. You must pass all 3 parts of the Skills Test: the Vehicle Inspection Test, the Basic Controls Test, and the Road Test. Your state may even allow you to use their "training aid" to help you remember items on the vehicle inspection checklist. Taking the Skills test is no guarantee that you will pass.

Once you have passed the Skills Test you need to take the documentation to the counter for processing. Some states will give you the New York CDL that same day, while others send it to you in the mail. Regardless make sure that everything is correct before you leave the counter. It can be costly and embarrassing if you find a mistake later.
