Truck Driving Schools

Since 1992 commercial truck drivers have been required to have special licensing to drive these large semi-trailers. In Tennessee a commercial drivers license is needed for anyone operating a:

  • vehicle with a gross vehicle weight of 26,001 pounds or more
  • any combination vehicle with a gross vehicle weight of 26,001 pounds, or if the trailer weighs more than 10,001
  • any vehicle designed to transport more than 15 passengers in addition to the driver
  • any size vehicle which requires hazardous material place cards

Operators of such vehicles may have a Class A, B, or C license depending on the weight of the vehicle and the materials being transported. Testing can vary on the type of vehicle being driven and oftentimes a skills test is required in order for an individual to retain their commercial drivers license (CDL).

Each year in Tennessee thousands of truck accidents are reported some of which end up being fatal. If a driver fails to receive proper training it could lead to serious consequences.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident caused by an inexperienced driver, the victim may be entitled to compensation for property damage, medical bills, lost wages, and more.
