It is highly recommended that you get familiar with the truck you are going to use for the DPS road test. Being familiar with the truck and the way it handles is a key for passing the multiple tests you will be going through; including the Safety Inspection, the various skills maneuvers, and the road-tests. In order to help you with getting familiar with the truck and its handling, we make the Class-A CDL test equipment available to you on rental basis by the hours, with discounted block-hours rates should you decide to use the truck for training purpose. Here's the details of the hourly rates we offer
We charge the total of $85 per hour for the truck-tractor and trailer with a minimum of two hours; this is less than half of what other competitors charge for the same service. The hourly fee is inclusive of the costs of fuel, insurance, and the CDL licensed driver who must be setting nest to you anytime you drive on public roads on a Commercial Learner Permit (CLP).
Rent-by-the-hour is recommended for CDL candidates with good-level of competency in driving and handling a Class-A Commercial Vehicle.
