Do I Need a Commercial Driver License in Hawaii?

To drive a Class A, B, or C commercial vehicle, you must have a Hawaii Commercial Driver's License (CDL). These types of licenses (as well as whichever endorsements may be required) are necessary when operating double/triple trailers, passenger vehicles, vehicles marked for hazardous materials, and tanker vehicles.

So what is the difference between various classes of CDLs?

  • Class A License - This is required when Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) exceeds 26,000 pounds (and provided that the vehicle being towed weighs more than 10,000 pounds).
  • Class B License - This class is deemed necessary when the vehicle being towed does not exceed 10,000 pounds, or the single vehicle exceeds 26,000.
  • Class C License - If a vehicle is placarded for hazardous materials, transports 16 or more passengers (including driver), and does not meet the criteria for Class A or B licensing, then this form is right up your alley!

You do NOT, however, need a CDL if you are an individual who is operating motor homes or vehicles transporting personal effects for non-business-related purposes. Also, if you work on federal, state, and county firefighter or police operating authority emergency vehicles; are active duty military; or maintain a military license operating military vehicles, then you do not require a CDL.

Hawaii CDL Skills Test

Our course imparts you with the knowledge and skills necessary to receive your classification. You must study the areas of the pre-trip vehicle inspection, basic vehicle control, and your on-road test to successfully acquire your license.

Additionally, Federal Motor Carrier Regulations necessitate that drivers pass a physical examination once every two years. When you go to take you CDL classification, you should be sure to bring along your birth certificate, DOT physical exam form, a passport-friendly photo, as well as your social security card.
