Thank you to the Office of Representative Jesse Topper for providing this update regarding PennDOT resources for Commercial Drivers License Holders.
April 27, 2020 — Construction projects in Pennsylvania will resume beginning Friday, May 1, 2020 as part of Governor Wolf’s phased reopening plan for Pennsylvania.
Commercial drivers and their services are vital to the construction industry, as well as other businesses. Offering these CDL services is an important step in supporting the business community as we prepare for a phased reopening of Pennsylvania. To support this effort, PennDOT will reopen a limited number of driver license centers that will provide Commercial Driver Licensing (CDL) services by appointment only, beginning Tuesday, April 28, 2020. Available services for commercial drivers at these locations will include CDL knowledge and skills testing, hazmat renewals and security threat assessments.
These locations will reopen for CDL services ONLY:
- Lehigh Valley – Address: 1710 Hoover Ave, Allentown;
- Somerset – Address: 5593 Glades Pike, Somerset;
- Lewistown – Address: 13217 Ferguson Valley Rd, Yeagertown; and
- Selinsgrove – Address: 1015 US-522, Selinsgrove.
Please note that Lehigh Valley only tests Class B and C. All other sites listed test Class A, B, and C.
Appointments will be scheduled based on demand and schedule availability. Individuals seeking CDL testing may call PennDOT’s Call Center at 717.412.5300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an appointment. When a request is received PennDOT staff will contact you within 1 business day to schedule an appointment.
In an abundance of caution to mitigate against the spread of COVID-19, new safety measures must be followed when arriving for a CDL appointment at the Driver License Center: Details of the requirements will be supplied once the customer is contacted during the scheduling process.
Thank you for your ongoing partnership as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances.
