Missouri CDL License Information and Insights

We wanted to supply a detailed breakdown of what it would take to earn your CDL license in the state of Missouri. It should be noted that our insights around the license are based on current information (May 2018) but regulations can change regularly. We encourage you to go directly to their website to insure your information is up to date and correct.

  • Applicants for a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) must have a Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP) for at least two weeks before completing the skills testing for a full CDL.
  • The initial CLP will be valid for a period of 180 days. Drivers can renew the CLP once for an extra 180-day period. After one renewal term, the applicant must complete all required knowledge testing to obtain a new CLP.
  • An out-of-state CLP cannot be transferred for a Missouri CLP. Applicants who are Missouri residents must get a Missouri based license, retake applicable commercial knowledge tests, and then receive a Missouri CLP.
  • Applicants must have a Missouri based driver’s license before they can receive a Missouri CLP. A new statement will appear on the face of the CLP, “Invalid unless accompanied by a valid MO Driver License.”
  • The Department must have the ability to receive and transmit commercial skills test results electronically from or to other jurisdictions. The Department will use secure encrypted e-mail to meet this requirement.
  • The S-School Bus Endorsement is now allowed on the CLP.
  • Federal regulation 49 CFR 383.73 requires at least two people to process and verify CLP and CDL applications and supporting documents.
  • Federal regulation 49 CFR 383.73 requires CDL and CLP applicants to provide proof of citizenship or permanent residency as defined in 49 CFR 33.71 for the first time after implementation of the CDL permit rule, provided a notation is made on the driver’s record confirming the required verification was completed. Once the Department completes this document re-verification for U.S. citizens applying for a commercial document and posts the verification date to the driver’s record, the applicant will not be required to show their lawful status verification document on subsequent transactions.

Commercial Driver’s Driving History
A commercial driver’s driving history travels with the driver when he or she moves from one state to another. A driver’s history, before coming to Missouri, is shown on the Missouri driving record under “Informational Driving History.”

If there are serious or disqualifying traffic offenses in the informational driving history and additional offenses are committed while licensed as a Missouri driver, all offenses in the informational driving history and the current offenses are evaluated to decide if the commercial driving privilege should be disqualified.
