No State-Mandated Education

Rhode Island does not possess a state-organized truck driving school system. Private truck training centers, or what are commonly referred to as third parties, handle the behind-the-wheel tutoring by providing invaluable on-road experience.

It's advisable, however, to make sure the school you're enrolling in conforms with Rhode Island standards as set by the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986. You can find truck school listings on the Internet or in your local phone directory.

These schools teach, but do not test commercial drivers. Exams are handled exclusively by the DMV (Pawtucket location only) in conjunction with the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI).

CDL Handbook

To get a jump-start on your commercial driver education, you can download Rhode Island's Commercial Driver's Manual. It provides truck driving tips and regulations, covering everything from pre-trip inspections and air brake use to combination vehicles and transporting hazardous materials. The manual serves as an invaluable tool in helping you to prepare for your Rhode Island CDL exams.
