Commercial Driver Training Employer Certification

The Commercial Driver Training Employer Certification form is used only by registered employers to certify that a commercial driver they employ has the skills and training necessary to operate a commercial motor vehicle safely. Employees won’t need certification to take CDL knowledge or skills tests, but must present an original certificate when they are issued CDLs.

Employer registration required

Before you can certify drivers who work for you, you must register with us and receive a unique employer ID number. If haven’t registered with us yet, see Employer registration and certification or call the CDL Program at 360.902.3619 to learn more.
