(1) An applicant for a commercial motor vehicle endorsement may make application, present medical certificates or medical statements, certificates of employment/experience, and one license affidavits, and take the vision and written examination at any driver services examination station during normal business hours.

(2) The driving examination for a class A endorsement is given on an appointment basis. Upon successful completion of all other requirements for a class A endorsement, the examiner will schedule an appointment at a class A examination station closest or most convenient to the applicant. At the request of the applicant, an examination will be scheduled in the applicant's home county within 90 days from the date of application.

(a) It is the applicant's responsibility to appear at the appointed time and place, and to provide a vehicle in good working order suitable to the class A endorsement applied for.

(b) If the applicant does not appear, or appears more than 15 minutes late for the scheduled appointment, or provides a vehicle that does not meet the requirements for the classification applied for, or that is unsafe or not in good working order, his appointment will be cancelled, or reset to the next available time.

(c) If the applicant has had an appointment cancelled due to nonappearance and had not informed the bureau of his inability to keep the appointment at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled time, a reappointment fee of $20 may be required to establish another appointment.

(i) Fees collected under this provision shall be used by the bureau to abate the travel costs of commercial vehicle examiners.

(ii) Reappointment fees may be waived if the appointee was incapacitated and unable to contact the bureau.

(d) If an applicant does not accept the appointment offered, it is the applicant's responsibility to obtain his/her own appointment by contacting the examiner in the area in which an appointment is desired.

(3) The driving examination for a class B endorsement is given at the examination station on a first-come, first-served basis, unless city ordinance or restriction or congestion of the test route limits its use. In that event, the examination is given as in (1) of this rule. It is the applicant's responsibility to provide a truck or bus in good working order suitable for the class B endorsement.
