DMV introduces Troops to Trucks program

The California Department of Motor Vehicles recently announced the availability of a new program – Troops to Trucks – aimed at streamlining the commercial driver license application process by eliminating the road skills driving test requirement.

A†commercial driver license†is required in California to operate large trucks and buses. To obtain a CDL, the applicant must be at least 18 years of age and pass a commercial medical examination, a vision examination, applicable knowledge (written) tests, and the road skills driving test.

Under the Troops to Trucks program, CDL applicants will not have to take the road skills driving test. Recent state and federal law changes allow the DMV to waive the road skills driving test for qualified military personnel (two or more years of military, heavy truck driving experience) applying for a California CDL.

For more details on this program or how to obtain a CDL, visit the California DMV website at http://www.dmv.ca.gov/military/troops_to_trucks.htm or http://www.dmv.ca.gov and search keyword “troops.”
