CDL Manuals Utah

To get behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle in Utah, you will first need to register for a commercial driver's license, or CDL. You will have to take knowledge and skill exams before earning a CDL, so proper studying and preparation are needed. Take the time to familiarize yourself with the Department of Public Safety's CDL handbook, which contains all the information you need to get going. The handbook extensively covers topics relating to general/specialized knowledge and the skill exams, including safe driving, accident procedures, driving in hazardous conditions, securing cargo and transporting passengers. The handbook's topics also include sections devoted to pre-trip vehicle inspections and operating school buses.
