This is a legitimate concern. No one goes to a school expecting to fail. However there is the big “what if”. Well first off, I would recommend don’t stress and psych yourself out before you get behind the wheel. Remember these are professional driving schools, this is what they do. The instructors were once just like you.
Now, if for some reason you don’t pass everything, that is okay; you can retake the test that you fail. Everyone has a bad day. Shake it off practice and try again. The good news is that typically the schools offer multiple chances to try and pass.
They will work with you. If the test is an officially governed requirement, most places allow more than one attempt to try and pass before they charge to retake the test.
But don’t worry you will do great and this won’t even be a consideration.
Well, like I said everything takes time. Some of this depends on the state in which you trying to get your license. Once all requirements are met, and you get a DOT physical, they will issue you a permit (usually for about two weeks). After you successfully pass everything you can get your actual license.

This will of course include all appropriate endorsements. Depending on your state, you will be given your license right away, but some states still mail it to your home of record. So it still could be a little bit before you physically have your CDL in your hand.
As I said earlier this is regulated industry. And if you aren’t use to following tons of rules than dealing with the DOT regulations might be a little tough at first. But that isn’t anything; you don’t only have federal regulatory agencies to deal with.
Remember the USA is made of fifty individual states so, there are 50 different sets of guidelines as well. And they are constantly changing depending on the environmental, political, and economic concerns that each area must control.
But don’t worry; this is all covered in your training. Good driving schools are much more than just driving the truck, which is the key of course, but they also cover everything, from the truck itself, to basic maintenance issues, and even how to fill out your electronic logs. Remember, they are about getting you prepared to enter the wonderful world of trucking, because after all, this is still one of the greatest industries to work in!
As with anything, it is very important that you research the various schools. Compare them to what is available with what you need. Not all the schools are the same. Always check out the review boards, the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and even ask around. Truck driving is not just a job; it is a way of life, so make the best of it.
