CDL License Wisconsin

In an effort to help military veterans transition back into the civilian lifestyle with ease, Wisconsin adopted two recent laws passed by congress in 2012. The Military Commercial Driver’s License Act of 2012 and the Military CDL Skills Test Waiver can help military veterans get their commercial driver license in two ways.

Military Commercial Driver’s License Act of 2012

In layman’s terms, this law allows you to apply for and complete the process of getting your CDL in any state to make it faster and easier wherever you are stationed.

Military CDL Skills Test Waiver

If you have served two years of safe operation in a military equivalent of a commercial vehicle, you can now get a waiver to skip the CDL skills test.
