How to Get a CDL in Rhode Island

To be eligible for a commercial driver’s license in Rhode Island, you must:

  • Be a Rhode Island resident. 
  • Be at least 18 years old to drive within Rhode Island.
  • Be at least 21 years old to drive interstate. 
  • Already hold a valid, noncommercial Rhode Island driver’s license.
  • Have at least 2 years of driving experience. 

As part of your application, you’ll need to submit:

  • A completed application for a CDL.
  • Proof of your age and identity. 
  • Proof of your Social Security Number. 
  • Proof of your residency in the state. 
  • Certified medical documents and paperwork. 
  • Any necessary background checks. 
  • Payment for your Commercial Learner’s Permit and Testing Fees.

The first step towards getting your commercial driver’s license is your Rhode Island Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP). To get the CLP you’ll need to:

  • Visit the DMV.
  • Submit your application, identification, residency, and medical documents, and pay the necessary fees.
  • Pass a vision test.
  • Pass the CDL general knowledge test and any necessary written tests for endorsements you’ll be applying for. 

After you pass the tests, you’ll receive your Rhode Island commercial learner’s permit, which is valid for 90 days.

With your learner’s permit, you’ll be able to practice driving a commercial vehicle with a supervising instructor and prepare for your road test. 

You’ll be eligible to take your CDL skills test after you’ve held the CLP for at least 14 days. 

You will either take your skills test through the DMV or an authorized testing facility. You’ll need to take and pass the test in the type of commercial vehicle that corresponds with your CDL Class and any endorsements. 

Fees for your Rhode Island CDL may include:

  • $12.50 CDL application fee.
  • $10 written test fee.
  • $72.50 CLP fee.
  • $22.50 for an updated/duplicate CDL.
