About us

Located in Bemidji, MN, CDL Express rents out a truck and trailer combination for your commercial driver's license exam, practice driving, backing and pre-trip inspection.  

Why did we start this?  When we went to get our own CDLs, we realized there was no where to rent a truck in Northern Minnesota and we had to travel to do the practice and exam, and then travel again for a retest.  After hearing many similar stories from people in Bemidji and nearby cities, we decided to give people the option to do it locally and affordably.  Compare our pricing - you won't find a better deal!

All you need to rent a truck from us and take your road test is to get a 6 month permit from any Minnesota driver's exam center by passing the knowledge tests.  You will need to pass the general knowledge, air brake, and combination vehicle knowledge tests.
That's it!  You're ready to practice and take the road test.

Our truck is an easy to drive air conditioned GMC C7500 tractor with a 5 speed manual transmission, using a clutch.  The trailer is a drop deck 30' flatbed with air brakes.  Pictures available on photos page!
