CDL Endorsements Practice Tests FAQs:

Why might I need multiple CDL endorsements?

The CDL endorsement you need depends on the type of vehicle you’ll be driving and the cargo you’ll be carrying, and some careers benefit from multiple endorsement types. For example, you may want both an “S” endorsement to drive school buses with students, and a “P” endorsement to drive charter or tour buses, allowing you to do multiple types of passenger driving.

What is a CDL endorsement?

A CDL endorsement is an additional credential added to your commercial driver’s license that certifies you to drive certain types of vehicles and/or carry specific kinds of cargo. You must have a CDL endorsement to drive tanker vehicles, carry hazardous materials, and transport passengers, as just a few examples.

Does the general CDL knowledge exam also count toward my endorsement?

No, the general CDL knowledge test does not also earn you any CDL endorsements. You must take a separate endorsement exam for each endorsement you wish to earn.
