An Indiana Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) allows the holder to operate commercial motor vehicles or combinations of vehicles with declared gross vehicle weight ratings in excess of 26,000 pounds; vehicles designed or used to transport 16 or more people, including the driver; and vehicles used to transport hazardous materials.
In general, CDL requirements are stricter than for any other Indiana driver’s license and are based upon stringent federal motor carrier safety regulations. To get a CDL you must be at least 18 years old, if you will be transporting property within state lines, or at least 21 years old if you will be transporting people. You must have held a valid driver’s license, chauffeur’s license, or public passenger chauffeur’s license for at least one year. You must also hold a CDL learner’s permit.
