Many states require that you have proof of in-state residency and a driver’s license issued by that state in order to train and test for your CDL license there.
For example, Illinois state law does not currently allow CDL holders to transfer their license into the state without having to re-take complete written and driving skills tests (for which you need access to a truck). In contrast, the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles will allow students from other states to complete their CDL training and licensing here if certain requirements are met (check with one of our Student Services representatives for complete details).
Truck Driver Institute operates 12 CDL training facilities in 8 states. Three of those locations are in the state of Indiana — South Bend, Indianapolis and Sellersburg (just across the river from Lousiville, KY). So, we can train drivers from Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky, as well as Indiana.
Along with CDL training, we also offer a third-party testing facility for Class A CDLs for the state of Indiana.
“We work with our sister company, AB Testing, on the same site so we can test both our students and the outside community for their commercial drivers licenses,” according to the Vice President and General Manager of Truck Driver Institute.
