Testing with a Third Party Commercial Driver License Tester


NOT A COMMERCIAL DRIVER? Please see information about Class C non-commercial drive tests or motorcycle drive tests.
A "Third Party CDL Tester" is an individual or organization that has been issued a Third Party Tester Certificate by DMV. A Third Party CDL Tester can conduct skills tests for a Class A, B, or C Commercial Driver License (CDL), in lieu of DMV conducting the tests.

Prior to scheduling a CDL test with a Third Party CDL Tester, you will need the following:
You must provide the Third Party CDL Tester with a legible copy of your driver license and instruction permit (or CDL). The Tester will not give you the Certificate of Test Completion without this copy.

A fee will be charged by the Third Party CDL Tester for their services (this fee is not established by DMV). Prior to issuance of your CDL you will be required to pay an additional CDL Certificate of Test Completion fee and an issuance fee to DMV.

With limited exceptions, tests with Third Party CDL Testers must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance.
If you suspect that a Third Party CDL Tester has committed fraud or other misconduct, or they solicit a bribe from you, please call (503) 945-8946 or send a message to the DMV Fraud Prevention Section to report the incident or attempt.
Note: The CDL Testers listed within the State Map are not certified to conduct non-commercial Class C drive tests or tests for school bus endorsements.
