Endorsements

Along with Class A Commercial Driving License, Fifth Wheel offers a wide range of services. One which included Double – Triple endorsement for your CDL. We know that many students who come to us always ask for endorsements to go along with their CDL training. So we created a program that’s just the perfect fit. Our instructor is endorsed with both Hazmat and Double – Triple endorsements. He has been in the business for 9 years and is very experienced with other loads besides your typically van trailer. In this program you get to practice and train with a tanker. This is the perfect hands on experience that will help get you the endorsements you need.

To obtain a endorsement, you first have to satisfy the requirements for a Class A,B, or C commercial drivers license.
