The Bureau of Motor Vehicles in Indiana is the agency responsible for the licensure of commercial truck drivers. You can pursue a Class A or Class B license at a local truck driving school. If you want to have a greater variety of job openings, consider doing the extra work to become a Class A driver. With a Class A license, you may be able to drive larger trucks and transport more loads.

The Bureau of Motor Vehicles does not require a truck driving course. However, completing one can give you invaluable truck driving experience and a background in the industry. You can learn about other skills you need to successfully drive over-the-road. These skills include loading a truck, finding stops for overnight parking, and producing legally-required documentation at weigh stations.

Upon completing your training, you can go to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and apply for your license. You must pass a written exam and pass a skills exam before being awarded your CDL.
