Carter Express requires that you get your CDL permit before attending school, and is also one of the few programs to require a Hazmat endorsement. Even though a US Passport is not required, we highly recommend you get one in case any future opportunities require it.
We also recommend you obtain all other CDL endorsements including Tanker, and Double/Triple certifications. Usually after studying the rest of the CDL manual, these exams can be passed easily and will only help you in the future.
Indiana schools cost $4,400, the Arkansas school costs $3,300.
The student only needs to pay for their CDL permit and endorsements.
