Indiana BMV to waive test for select veterans

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles will waive the required driving skills test for select veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who had specific drive training and were truck drivers during their military service when they apply for an Indiana Commercial Driver’s License. The Indiana Military CDL Skills Waiver Program began Nov. 12.

Under federal guidelines governing the issuance of CDLs, all applicants must pass a written knowledge test and a drive skills test. Under the new rules, the BMV may waive the skills test requirement for a veteran who completed an approved military driver training program and operated a truck as a regular duty.

Using a form available on the website or at any BMV license branch, the applicant will need to document his/her military service and training. If the skills test waiver is approved, the applicant will need only to pass the Indiana CDL written test to receive his/her CDL.

If a veteran has not completed an approved military driver training program but can document that he/she has operated trucks in the military service, the BMV program requires the applicant to take both the IN CDL written knowledge and skills tests. Fees for the skills test and the truck rental will be reimbursed if the applicant passes the tests.

The Indiana Military CDL Waiver Program was developed with the assistance of the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs, the Indiana National Guard, the Motor Carrier Division of the Indiana State Police and the Indiana Motor Truck Association.

Additional information about the Military Waiver Program is available at website or by calling the BMV at 1-888-692-6841.
