You must also be at least 21 years old to transport materials that are deemed hazardous and require a placard. You need a Nebraska CDL in order to operate either commercial or non-commercial motor vehicles that fall into the following categories:

Class A
      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.  

Class B
      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. 

Class C
      Any vehicle or combination of vehicles that does not meet the criteria of either Class A or Class B, but is designed to transport 16 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 Nebraska Commercial Learner’s Permit

      You must already possess a Nebraska commercial learner’s permit (CLP) before you can take the CDL Road Test. Before applying for a Nebraska commercial learner’s permit, you must already possess a valid Nebraska Class O driver’s license. You will be issued a Nebraska commercial driver’s license (CDL) when you pass both the written general knowledge test and the CDL Skills Test. 

      In order to obtain a Nebraska commercial learner’s permit, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old for intrastate driving (within the state of Nebraska).
  • Be at least 21 years of age for interstate driving (outside the state of Nebraska).
  • Be at least 21 years of age to transport materials deemed hazardous.
  • Possess a valid Nebraska Class O driver’s license.
  • Provide proof of identity.
  • Provide proof of your Social Security number (i.e., your Social Security card, payroll check stub, W-2 form, etc.).
  • Prove you are of legal U.S. status by providing the required documents .
  • Provide proof of your current Nebraska residency that shows your name and address (i.e., a utility bill, vehicle registration, insurance card, etc.).
  • Provide your current D.O.T. Medical Examiner’s Certificate and completed Medical Examination Report (cannot be more than 2 years old).
  • Provide your completed and signed Nebraska CDL Medical Self-Certification Form.

  • Pay any CDL written test fees.

      If you have any questions about which documents to bring to your nearest Nebraska Driver Licensing Office when you apply for your commercial learner’s permit, you can either call your local Nebraska Driver Licensing Office, or you can call the Nebraska Driver Licensing Services at (402) 471-3861 and speak to a customer service representative from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. CST Monday thru Friday. Their fax number is (402) 471-4020

The CDL Written Tests

      All commercial driver’s license applicants must pass the general knowledge written test in order to be eligible to receive a CDL. The examination might be waived under the following conditions:

  • The applicant furnishes a Nebraska CDL that is either valid or has been expired for less than one year.
  • The applicant furnishes a valid CDL from another state.
  • The applicant is renewing a Nebraska commercial learner’s permit that is either valid or has been expired for less than one year.

      All CDL knowledge tests are administered in English and in written form. In order to receive a passing score, each applicant is required to answer at least 80% of the questions correctly. All written tests require a score of at least 80% to pass.

      You can take the CDL written tests on a walk-in basis or schedule an appointment. Driver Licensing Offices tend to be busier in the afternoon so, walk-in applicants should plan accordingly. Please factor in what time the exam station closes when scheduling your appointment or arriving at the station on a walk-in basis, as the CDL written tests will take approximately sixty minutes or more to complete, based on the number of tests you plan on taking.

      Once you successfully pass the CDL written tests and pay the required fees, you will be issued a commercial learner’s permit. The commercial learner’s permit will be valid for up to six months from the date it is issued and will allow you to practice driving a commercial motor vehicle. 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 CDL of the same class or greater than the class of vehicle you are operating.

      If you do not successfully pass the CDL Skills Test and obtain your commercial driver’s license before your commercial learner’s permit expires, then you will be forced to repeat the entire process. You may only renew the commercial learner’s permit once every two years.

      Be sure to download and study the Nebraska Manual for Commercial Driver’s Licensing as it contains the information you need to pass the CDL tests, including some sample test questions. Over 60% of first time CDL applicants fail the written test!

      Our Free CDL Practice Tests will help prepare you for the actual CDL knowledge tests administered by the DMV.

The CDL Skills Test

      The CDL Skills Test consists of a Pre-trip Inspection, a Brake Check, a Basic Vehicle Controls Test, and an On-Road Driving Test, and must be taken in the same class and type of motor vehicle 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. 

  • 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, and will include a brake check.
  • Brake Check: The brake check is an examination of your air brakes or hydraulic brakes, followed by a parking brake check. All phases of the brake check must be carried out successfully to pass. 
  • Basic Controls Test: Before you can take the CDL Road 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 CDL Pre-Trip Inspection

      The Basic Controls Test may include the following maneuvers:

  • 90 degree alley docking
  • Straight line backing
  • Parallel parking (driver side)
  • Parallel parking (conventional)
  • Offset back/right
  • Offset back/left

      The Road Skills Test will take at least 60 minutes to finish and will be administered on a route predetermined by the examiner. The test route may include the following:

  • Starting
  • Stopping
  • Braking
  • Turning
  • Observing traffic signs
  • Observing traffic signals
  • Observing other traffic
  • Using vehicle controls
  • Maintaining proper lane positions
  • Downgrades
  • Downgrade stopping
  • Upgrades
  • Upgrade stopping
  • Railroad crossings
  • Bridge clearance
  • Underpass clearance
  • General observance of traffic laws
  • General safe driving practices for trucks or buses

      On the day of your CDL Skills Test appointment you must:

  1. Arrive on time.
  2. Bring your commercial learner’s permit.
  3. Bring your valid D.O.T. medical card.
  4. Bring a passenger qualified to drive a CMV with the same class of CDL or greater than the test vehicle.
  5. Bring a test vehicle that is the same class of license that you are testing for and that has passed inspection.
  6. Bring the revenue needed to pay the necessary fees to obtain your commercial driver’s license.

      Failure to do any of the above will result in an immediate cancellation of your CDL Skills Test appointment! The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles advises applicants to schedule their CDL Skills Test appointment a few weeks in advance. The Nebraska DMV has the right to cancel any CDL Skills Test appointment due to bad weather, under sourced staffing, or any other unforseen circumstances.

      Once you pass the CDL Skills Test and pay the required fees, you will obtain your commercial driver’s license. The commercial driver’s license will be valid for up to one to five years depending on which CDL you pay for. All driver licensing fees are paid to the County Treasurer.

      Be sure to download and study the Nebraska Manual for Commercial Driver’s Licensing as it contains pertinent information that will help you pass the CDL Skills Test. Be sure to download and study the Nebraska Manual for Commercial Driver’s Licensing CDL Skills Tests Pilot to help you pass the CDL Skills Test.

Commercial Driver Self-Certification

      In the state of Nebraska, all commercial driver’s license applicants must self-certify as to what type of driving they will be doing (intrastate or interstate), and if they have met all the FMCSA medical requirements. You can download and print a copy of the self-certification form here.

      For more details on how to self-certify in the state of Nebraska, check out the Nebraska CDL Self-Certification Categories Chart and the Nebraska CDL Self-Certification FAQs.

Medical Examination Report for Commercial Driver’s License

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 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.     

      Once you have completed and signed the , the Medical Examiner’s Certificate, the Medical Examination Report, the Nebraska CDL New and Renewal –  CDL Data Form, and any applicable medical waivers, you can submit your documents by doing either of the following:

  • Bring your completed and signed documents to any Nebraska Driver Licensing Office.

Military Drivers
