Question: If someone has a CDL learners permit that was paid for by a school they attended, but then they left that school, can the school contact the BMV and have that permit cancelled based on the fact it was paid for by the school?

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Bmv:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

I seriously doubt that it would be possible for that to happen. Your permit was issued by the state not the school. When I was in school they "paid" for mine, and held onto the state issued copy, they made all of us copies of the originals (those were not legal permits as they did not have the state seals) however I could have gone to the DMV and paid for another legal permit copy.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Ian, what's really going on?

I'm not trying to pry, and you certainly don't have to answer, but that is a loaded question. It seems a silly thing to worry about needing to go get another permit which, if I remember correctly, cost me about eleven bucks here in Texas. I'm pretty sure I remember us advising you that school was going to be tough - really tough - and you would really need to be resolved to stick it out.

What happens when you go to the next company school and you don't like the way it's going? We warn folks all the time that they are going to be thinking they've made a big mistake, and that there will be days upon end that they will want to walk out. I think I remember us even warning you about the problems at your particular choice of schools, how they were bringing in lots of students and folks were ending up waiting a long time to get with a trainer or having delays before they could get set up with a truck and a team member.

Were I you, I would be way more concerned about any contract that I signed with them than I would be about needing to get another permit.

Unexpected waiting, and seemingly unnecessary delays are all a huge part of this career - part of your training is going to be forcing yourself to get used to it, because brother trust me... there are days out here that it will almost bring you to tears.

Again Ian, I'm not trying to pry, but I hope you will reconsider, and re-examine your motive or reason for jumping ship. Commitment is a big deal in this industry, and commitment often has to face some really big obstacles in it's way - I know, because I've fought that battle and won. You can too, but it takes a big dose of resolve, and then an even bigger dose once you are out here trying your best to make a living at this. That is why it is so important that you stick it out in school - the next level takes an even greater resolve.

Thanks so much, that is exactly what I thought.

Thanks Old School, I will explain my situation in a couple of weeks. All is good and heading towards my CDL test very soon. I will keep you posted as to my passed dilemma when it's appropriate to do so. Thanks so much for the encouragement.
