Before you can begin a career as a commercial truck driver, you must go through the process of earning a commercial driver’s license in South Dakota. It’s important to learn about the industry and how to drive a truck before you apply for your license. You can attend a number of truck driving schools in South Dakota that offer Class A or Class B driver training.

The first step of the licensure process goes through the South Dakota Department of Public Safety. You need to meet all licensing requirements, including a vision test and a clean driving history. You can then take the required written tests. You can get an instructional permit after passing all required written tests.

At truck driving school, you can use your instructional permit to learn how to drive a straight truck or tractor-trailer. You should feel ready to do a vehicle inspection, a vehicle skills test, and an on-the-road test. Do not return to the Department of Driver Services to take your skills test. Skills testing in South Dakota goes through third-party testing sites, so you’ll need to find a site near you and schedule a test. When you pass the exam, you can go back to the Department of Driver Service and get your driver’s license.Part of working in a new field is staying on top of changes in the industry and learning from industry leaders. The South Dakota Trucking Association is an organization that supports truck drivers and advocates for their rights on a legislative level.

When you join this group, you can enjoy a range of membership benefits. The group awards a Driver of the Month award, hosts numerous events throughout the year, and publishes a monthly newsletter that brings you up-to-date on the South Dakota trucking industry.
