While the state of South Dakota is sparsely populated, the state does have a mature trucking industry with associations like the South Dakota Trucking Association promoting and supporting the trucking industry. The most common route for drivers is through the I-29 corridor which runs through the eastern part of the state from the Iowa border near Sioux City to the North Dakota border near New Effington. This route will take you through the Sioux Falls, the state’s largest city. But before you can become a driver and join the ranks of commercial vehicle operators, you will need to get your South Dakota commercial driver’s license (CDL). That means not only paying the $33 licensing and $15 endorsement fees but also passing a series of knowledge and skills tests. But don’t worry, you can start preparing for your exams now by taking advantage of our CDL practice tests. Our practice exams cover the general knowledge test and specific endorsements like passenger vehicles, air brakes, doubles/triples, combination vehicles, and more. Designed to simulate the real exam, our practice tests are designed to be just like the real thing. Start preparing for a career in commercial trucking now.
