CDL Written Test Preparation Class



What is a Commercial Learners Permit (CLP)?

The first step in qualifying for an Illinois CDL is to pass the written test(s) at a state testing facility. Once a person passes the written test(s), they are issued a learner’s permit. With a CLP, the holder is eligible to take the CDL road test at anytime within six (6) months of CLP issuance.
