Commercial Examiner

The commercial examiner is responsible for the testing and licensing of commercial drivers, those licensed for the first time, and those whose commercial licenses are being upgraded or reinstated. Becoming a commercial examiner requires a high degree of examiner quality, uniformity, and reliability and requires standardized and consistent training.   

AAMVA, the International Driver Examiner Certification (IDEC) Board and the Test Maintenance Subcommittee (TMS) collaborated with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in the development of a set of comprehensive training materials designed to assist jurisdictions in meeting the CDL Examiner Training and Certification requirements listed in Section 384.228(a) of the Federal Motor carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR). The materials assist jurisdictions in training and certifying state knowledge and skills test examiners and third party skills test examiners.  

Third party CDL skill testers should contact their state driver license agencies directly for additional information.
