Third party testers are companies that are authorized to conduct the driving skills examination for the issuance of the Commercial Driver's License (CDL) for a fee. These companies must follow all requirements outlined in title 247 NAC, Chapter 8, Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles Rules and Regulations Governing the Certification of Third-Party Testers and Third-Party Examiners for the Commercial Driver’s License.
Drivers must have a valid CLP and hold for a minimum of 14 days prior to taking a CDL skills test. Skills tests appointments by Third Party Testers must be made a minimum of two days in advance of testing.
Applicants who are administered CDL skills tests at a third party tester location should be aware that they may be required to retake the skills tests administered by driver licensing staff or at a later date as part of the DMV audit process. If you are asked to retake the skills tests by driver licensing staff and refuse, the issuance of your CDL may be denied. If you fail the CDL skills tests as part of the audit process or do not appear at the time of audit, your CDL may be subject to cancellation.
Third Party Testers that are training schools may administer the CDL skills tests to individuals who have taken training in Nebraska, but are to be licensed in another state.
