In order to ride the Ozarks with the Razorbacks blaring on the radio, you’ll need a valid automobile or motorcycle operator’s license. Or if you are looking to haul cargo through the so-called “land of opportunity” you want to check into the regulations required for a commercial vehicle license (CVL). Whatever your mode of motorized transportation, you’re going to need to pass a DMV driver’s test to secure a permit or a license. Luckily, we have you covered, with comprehensive practice tests that contain hints and tricks as well as test simulators that give you the feel of exactly what it is like to take the test at the Arkansas DMV.

Whether lugging poultry through Little Rock or aircraft engines into Fayetteville, it’s necessary to complete an application for an Arkansas commercial driver's license (CDL). Before you head to the DMV let us guide you in all you need to know. We've got information on the fees (which add up to around $100) and have lists of exam questions to prepare you to start the engine of any kind of vehicle. So if you want to drive a band bus or tanker truck, take a look. The Exams have anywhere from 70 - 100 questions depending on which class of vehicle you are looking for and which endorsements you plan to add. We have practice tests for them all: passenger and school busses, doubles/triples, tank vehicles, hazardous materials, or air brake restriction removal skills.
