Commercial Driver License program for Service Members and Veterans
Under legislation passed by the General Assembly in 2013, the road skills test may be waived for qualified military personnel applying for a Tennessee Commercial Driver License (CDL). Applicants, however, are required to pass the applicable CDL knowledge test. Qualified active duty military personnel who held a military operator's permit for the past two years are eligible for the basic road skills test waiver. This applied to current National Guard and military Reserve Personnel as well as Veterans who have been discharged within the last year.
