Third Party Commercial Driver License Testing

 

IF YOU'RE NOT A COMMERCIAL TRUCK OR BUS DRIVER, you can still take drive tests with a third party tester:

  • A third party tester can conduct skills tests for Class A, B, or C commercial driver licenses only.
  • CDL skills tests must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance.
  • Before scheduling a skills test, you will need the following:
    • A valid Oregon Driver License issued at least 14 days prior to testing; and
    • A valid Oregon Commercial Learner Permit, CDL Instruction Permit or a valid CDL issued at least 14 days prior to testing.
  • Before taking the skills test, you must:
    • Pass all required knowledge tests; and
    • Show the third party tester your driver license and commercial learner permit or CDL instruction permit.
  • The examiner will charge a fee, set by them, for your test. You will have to pay issuance and other fees to DMV when you get your CDL.
  • After you pass your CDL skills tests, you must wait one business day before going to a DMV office to get your CDL.
  • Anyone who trained you on any portion of the CDL skills test cannot conduct your test. Also, a third party examiner working for a commercial truck or bus driver training school cannot test a driver who has been trained by anyone who works at the school.

If you suspect that a Third Party CDL Tester or examiner has committed fraud, broken the rules, or if they try to get a bribe from you, please call 503-945-5118 or send a message to the CDL Third Party Inspector.
