Missouri’s testing process is changing for prospective commercial drivers. A news release from the Missouri Department of Revenue said the Commercial Driver License testing changes include a more streamlined pre-trip examination and more efficient basic skills course.

The changes will begin on December 4 and will be used by all CDL testing sites around the state, including at all Patrol examination sites and third-party exam locations.

Per federal guidelines, test takers must pass the pre-trip and basic skills using the same testing model, meaning if an applicant passes the old model pre-trip, they must pass the old model basic skills test to be eligible for the road test.
