how to get a cdl in okc

It may be somewhat challenging to get a CDL — as is everything new and worthwhile — but the best way to get your CDL is to enroll in a reputable truck driving school such as American Truck Training (ATT). A good CDL training program in OKC will teach you the necessary driving abilities and knowledge to become a safe professional truck driver.

Get Started

American Truck Training is here to help you earn your commercial driver’s license (CDL) regardless of your background or skill level!

Jerome Redmond, President & CEO of ATT, designed the CDL training program for people of all backgrounds. He says, “it doesn’t matter what your educational background is, we can help you if you are willing to work for it.” And Taffie, a former student, said ATT is a “good place to learn, especially for beginners. They will help you learn and if you’re having problems, they will continue to help you learn.”

Before we get ahead of ourselves, you need to know the basic Oklahoma requirements for earning your CDL:

  • You must be a U.S. citizen or have a permanent resident card.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age to drive within state lines (intrastate).
  • You must be at least 21 years old to drive commercial vehicles across state lines (interstate) and haul hazardous materials.
  • You must pass a full physical exam before entering a class with excellent hearing and vision: hear a whisper from 5 feet away, 20/40 vision with a 70-degree field of vision.

If you pass the requirements above and you’re willing to put in the work, ATT will teach you everything you need to know to pass your CDL test. More importantly, we’ll go above and beyond to provide you with the knowledge and resources to succeed in your trucking career. Here are two insightful testimonials from students who worked hard to earn their CDL at American Truck Training.
