Georgia CDL Requirements
Georgia CDL Classes
You must be at least 18 years old to operate a commercial motor vehicle within the state of Georgia (intrastate) and at least 21 years of age to drive a commercial motor vehicle across Georgia state lines (interstate). Once you turn 21, you must go to the CDL examination station to get the intrastate restriction taken off of your GA CDL.
You need a Georgia CDL in order to operate either commercial or non-commercial motor vehicles that fall into the following categories:
Any combination of vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 26,001 pounds or more, provided that the gross vehicle weight rating of the towed vehicle is in excess of 10,000 pounds. Any size vehicle that requires a hazardous materials placard.
Any single vehicle with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 26,001 or more pounds, as well as any vehicle towing another vehicle that does not exceed a weight of 10,000 pounds. Any size vehicle that requires a hazardous materials placard.
Any vehicle or combination of vehicles that does not meet the criteria of either Class A or Class B, but is designed to transport 15 or more passengers (including the driver), or is used in transporting materials classified as hazardous in the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act. Each applicant must also have a passenger or hazardous materials endorsement in order to obtain a Class C commercial driver’s license.
Applying for a Georgia Commercial Learner’s Permit
You must already possess a Georgia commercial learner’s permit (Class AP or BP) before you can take the CDL Skills Test. Before applying for a Georgia commercial learner’s permit, you must already possess a valid Georgia driver’s license. You will be issued a Georgia commercial driver’s license (CDL) when you pass both the written general knowledge test and the CDL Road Skills Test.
In order to obtain a Georgia commercial learner’s permit, you must:
- Possess a valid Georgia driver’s license.
- Prove that you are at least 18 years old.
- Pass the vision exam.
- Provide your Social Security card.
- Provide documents of proof of your identity and date of birth (i.e., a certified birth certificate, valid U.S. passport, etc.).

If you have any questions, you can speak to a customer service representative at the Georgia Department of Driver Services Contact Center by calling any of the following phone numbers:
- (404) 657-9300
- (678) 413-8400
- (678) 413-8500
- (678) 413-8600

The Contact Center is open Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 5:15 pm. The Georgia Department of Driver Services is closed during all state holidays.
The CDL Knowledge Tests
The CDL knowledge tests are administered at all Customer Service Centers. All commercial driver’s license applicants must pass the general knowledge test in order to be eligible to receive a CDL. Applicants must also take the knowledge tests whenever they add a class of vehicle to their CDL, add special endorsements to their CDL, or to remove an air brakes restriction that has been placed on their CDL.
The CDL general knowledge test consists of 50 questions in multiple choice form. In order to receive a passing score, each applicant is required to answer at least 80% of the questions correctly in the time allotted for that test. All knowledge tests require a score of at least 80% to pass.
Any applicant that exceeds the time limit or incorrectly answers too many questions on the general knowledge test will fail the test. Any applicant that uses any kind of test aid during the test will automatically fail the test. Anyone caught talking to another person during the test will automatically fail the test. Use of cell phones and camera devices is prohibited in the testing area.
Any applicant that fails a written knowledge test will be required to wait at least seven days before they are eligible to take the test again. After four consecutive failures, the applicant will be required to reapply through the Commercial Driver’s License Unit.
You must pay the $10 fee before you take the written knowledge tests. The $10 fee will pay for the commercial learner’s permit if you pass the written tests. If you fail the written tests, then the $10 fee will be retained as a testing fee and you will be required to pay an additional $10 to take the written knowledge tests again.
All Customer Service Centers are open Tuesday through Saturday, from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. All written knowledge tests must be completed by 5:15 pm. Most Customer Service Centers are busier during the afternoon hours so, applicants should keep this in mind when planning their test time.
Once you successfully pass the required knowledge tests, the Georgia Department of Driver Services will issue you a commercial learner’s permit so that you can practice operating a commercial motor vehicle. The commercial learner’s permit will be valid for up to one year from the date of issuance. You may only renew the commercial learner’s permit once within a two year period.
You may only operate a CMV under the supervision of a front seat passenger who is at least 21 years old and carries a valid Georgia CDL of the same class as the vehicle you are operating. You may not operate any vehicle that is transporting materials deemed hazardous.
Over 60% of first time CDL applicants fail the written test! Be sure to download and study the Georgia Commercial Drivers Manual, as it contains the information you need to pass the CDL knowledge tests, including some sample test questions. You can also view and download a page flip version of the Georgia Commercial Drivers Manual (Page Flip Version).

The CDL Skills Test
Once you obtain your commercial learner’s permit, you will be allowed to take the CDL Skills Test. The Skills Test is given by appointment only and is only offered at the Albany, Between, Brunswick, Dalton, Gainesville, Jackson, Milledgeville and Thomson CDL Examination Stations. Walk-ins are not permitted. To schedule a test appointment, call (678) 413-8500. The CDL Skills Test is also administered by state certified CDL Third Party Testers. Please contact the CDL Third Party Tester to schedule an appointment. You will be required to pay a $50 Skills Test fee when you schedule an appointment.
If you take the Skills Test at a CDL Examination Station, you will have to provide your own test vehicle. The Examination Station will not provide a vehicle for you to test in. Some CDL Third Party Testers may provide a vehicle for you to test in for a fee.
The CDL Skills Test is a three part test that consists of a Pre-trip Inspection, a Basic Vehicle Controls Test, and an On-Road Driving Test. You will be required to take the test in the same class and type of motor vehicle that you plan to drive once you obtain your CDL.
If you take the CDL Skills Test in a commercial motor vehicle that is not equipped with air brakes, then you will have an air brakes restriction attached to your commercial driver’s license. If you fail any one part of the CDL Skills Test, you will be required to retake the entire test again. Only one CDL Skills Test can be taken per day. If your test vehicle is not legally equipped and safe to drive, you will not be able to proceed with the Skills Test.
- Pre-trip Inspection: Before you can take the CDL driving tests, you will first be tested on your knowledge of the class of vehicle you plan on driving once you obtain your CDL. The Pre-trip inspection also determines if your commercial vehicle is safe enough to drive on public roads. If you fail the Pre-trip Inspection, you may not be allowed to take the Road Skills Test.
- Basic Controls Test: Before you can take the Road Skills Test, you will first need to prove that you have the skills to operate a commercial motor vehicle on public roads. This test consists of various off-road maneuvers such as backing up your vehicle, moving your vehicle forward, and making turns within a defined area.
- Road Skills Test: Once you pass the first two tests, you will be required to drive your commercial vehicle on public roads in various traffic situations. You will be required to operate the same class of commercial vehicle you plan to drive once you obtain your CDL.
The Basic Controls Test will most likely include the following maneuvers:
- 90 degree alley docking
- Straight line backing
- Parallel parking (driver side)
- Parallel parking (conventional)
- Offset backing to the right
- Offset backing to the left
The Road Skills Test will be administered on a route predetermined by the examiner. The test route will most likely include the following:
- Observing traffic signs
- Observing traffic signals
- Observing other traffic
- Using vehicle controls
- Maintaining proper lane positions
- Downgrade stopping
- Upgrade stopping
- Railroad crossings
- Bridge clearance
- Underpass clearance
- General observance of traffic laws
- General safe driving practices for trucks or buses
Any applicant that fails the CDL Skills Test will be required to wait at least seven days before they are eligible to take the test again. After four consecutive failures, the applicant will be required to reapply through the Commercial Driver’s License Unit.
On the day of your CDL Skills Test appointment you must:
- Arrive on time.
- Bring your validated commercial learner’s permit.
- Bring your valid D.O.T. medical card (cannot be more than 2 years old).
- Bring a passenger (age 21 or older) that is qualified to drive a CMV with the same class of CDL or greater than the test vehicle.
- Bring a test vehicle that is the same class of license that you are testing for that is safe to drive.
Failure to do any of the above may result in an immediate cancellation of your CDL Skills Test appointment! The Georgia Department of Driver Services advises applicants to schedule their Skills Test appointment a few weeks in advance and to arrive early for their test appointment. If you decide to cancel your Skills Test appointment, you must cancel the appointment no later than 24 hours in advance.
The Georgia Department of Driver Services has the right to cancel any CDL Skills Test appointment due to bad weather, under sourced staffing, or any other unforseen circumstances. Be sure to call (678) 413-8400 within Metro Atlanta or toll-free 1-866-754-3687 outside Metro Atlanta on the day of your Skills Test to see if your appointment has been canceled.
The following D.D.S. Examination stations offer the CDL Skills Road Test:
CDL road tests are given by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call (678) 413-8500. You will be required to pay a $50 Road Test fee when you schedule an appointment.
If you scheduled a Skills Test appointment with a state certified CDL Third Party Tester, be sure to call the Third Party Tester on the morning of your appointment to see if your appointment has been canceled.

Commercial Driver Self-Certification
In the state of Georgia, all commercial driver’s license holders must self-certify as to what type of driving they will be doing (intrastate or interstate), and whether they meet or exceed the medical and physical standards put forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to legally and safely operate a commercial motor vehicle. All CDL applicants must self-certify once they obtain their commercial driver’s license.
You are required to self-certify whenever you:
- Apply for a commercial driver’s license.
- Renew a commercial driver’s license.
- Apply for a higher class of commercial driver’s license.
- Apply for a new CDL endorsement.
- Transfer a commercial driver’s license from another state.
All commercial drivers who intend to operate a commercial motor vehicle for the following purposes only, do not require a commercial driver’s license and are considered “exempt” and therefore are waived from self-certification:
- Fire and emergency vehicles used to preserve life and property or to carry out governmental operations.
- Vehicles operated by non-civilian operators of military equipment.
- Recreational vehicles that are being used for personal recreational use only.
- Any farm vehicle used to transport agricultural products, farm machinery, or farm supplies within 150 air-miles of the owner’s farm and not used in the operation of a common or contract motor carrier.
If you intend to operate a commercial motor vehicle for any other purpose than those listed above, then you are considered “non-exempt” and are required to hold a valid CDL and must self-certify. You may also need to provide a current Medical Examiner’s Certificate.
If you operate a commercial motor vehicle in either intrastate or interstate commerce solely for the following purposes, then you are under “excepted” status, and therefore do not need to provide a Medical Examiner’s Certificate, but may need to undergo a medical evaluation:
- Transporting school children and/or school staff members between home and school.
- Operating any vehicle as an employee of either Federal, State, or Local government.
- Operating fire and rescue vehicles for emergency purposes and other related events.
- Transporting sick, injured, or deceased persons.
- Primarily transporting propane heating fuel when responding to an emergency condition requiring an immediate response.
- When responding to a pipeline emergency requiring an immediate response such as a pipeline leak or rupture.
- When custom harvesting on a farm or to haul farm machinery and supplies to and from a farm or when transporting crops between a farm and a market or storage facility.
- When operating a farm vehicle that is not a combo vehicle (power unit and towed unit), and is used to haul agricultural products, farm supplies (cannot be materials deemed hazardous), or farm machinery to and from a farm and within 150 air miles of the farm.
- Transporting bees as an apiarist during beekeeping season.
- When transporting migrant workers.
- As a private motor carrier of passengers for non-business activities.
If you intend to operate a commercial motor vehicle for any other purpose than those listed above, then you operate in either “non-excepted” intrastate commerce, “non-excepted” interstate commerce, or both. “Non excepted” interstate drivers and “non-excepted” intrastate drivers must provide a current Medical Examiner’s Certificate along with a completed and signed copy of the Commercial Driver Self-Certification Form. The Medical Examiner’s Certificate cannot expire within 60 days from the date of submission.
Any commercial drivers who self-certify as “excepted” interstate or “excepted” intrastate, must complete, sign, and submit either the Commercial Driver Self-Certification Form only. “Excepted” drivers do not have to submit any medical documents or waivers but, may have to undergo a medical evaluation. Please check out the Self Certification/Medical Certification Checklist for details.
All commercial drivers and CDL applicants can upload their documents using the Online Self-Certification Portal. You can submit your documents by mail, fax, online, or in person no matter what your self-certification status is.
If you have any questions regarding self-certification, you can speak to a customer service representative at the Georgia D.D.S. CDL Help Desk by calling (478) 751-4190 Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 5:15 pm, EST. Please have your commercial driver’s license number readily available when you call. You can also email the CDL Help Desk at email@example.com. Please address your emails to Kathy Harvey. The CDL Help Desk is closed during all state holidays.
Medical Examination Report for Commercial Driver’s License
- Licensed U.S. doctor of medicine (M.D.)
- Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O)
- Licensed physician assistant (P.A.)
- Advanced practice registered nurse
The Medical Examiner’s Certificate must be attached to the Medical Examination Report and dated within the previous two years if you are renewing your commercial driver’s license. If you are a first time CDL applicant submitting your Medical Examiner’s Certificate, then the certificate must not expire within 60 days from the date of submission.
The Georgia Department of Driver Services will only accept your medical forms if they have been completed by a qualified physician who has been certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. You can search for a FMCSA certified physician by using the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners.
The FMSCA requires you to have at least 20/40 vision in each eye and a field of vision of at least 140 degrees (70 degrees in each eye) in order to be certified to operate a commercial motor vehicle. Under certain conditions, you may be able to be waived from these and other medical requirements.
If you fail to meet these minimum guidelines, then you can request to be exempted from the Federal CDL vision requirements by submitting a CDL Vision Exemption Form (DDSVE1). If the request is granted, then the applicant will be prohibited from driving out of state. If you choose to have your vision corrected through eye surgery, then you must return to a Customer Service Center and pass the vision exam in order to have the intrastate restriction removed from your CDL.
All commercial drivers and CDL applicants must be examined by a FMCSA certified medical examiner that is listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners. The state of Georgia will not accept your medical documents and certification if you have not been examined by a FMCSA certified medical examiner.
Any applicant who was determined by a licensed physician to have a disqualifying physical or mental disability/disease must:
- Have a licensed physician evaluate whether your condition makes it impossible for you to drive safely or not.
- Have a licensed physician fill out a Medical Report form (DS-287).
- Mail the license examiner with your Medical Report form.
Once you have completed and signed the Medical Examiner’s Certificate, the Medical Examination Report, the Commercial Driver Self-Certification Form, and any applicable medical waivers, you can submit your documents by doing any of the following:
- Bring your completed and signed documents in person to any D.D.S. Customer Service Center.
- Fax your completed and signed documents to (770) 918-6251.
- Submit your completed and signed documents online using the Online Self-Certification Portal (you must create or already have a D.D.S. account).
- Mail your completed and signed documents to:
Department of Driver Services
Post Office Box 80447
Conyers, GA 30013
Please include your name, address, contact phone number, driver’s license number, and date of birth on all mailings and faxes. Make sure your information is clearly printed and be sure to double check and, if needed, correct any errors before submitting your documents. All CDL applicants are advised to keep copies of these documents for their own records. Failure to comply with state and federal self-certification regulations will result in a suspension, downgrade, or cancellation of your commercial driving privileges.
If you have any questions regarding document submission, you can speak to a customer service representative at the Georgia D.D.S. CDL Help Desk by calling (478) 751-4190 Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 5:15 pm, EST. Please have your commercial driver’s license number readily available when you call. You can also email the CDL Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please address your emails to Kathy Harvey. The CDL Help Desk is closed during all state holidays.
