Step 1: Obtain Your Commercial Driver’s Licence (CDL)
It’s really quite simple, there’s nothing much to it. Just grab a copy of of the Tennessee CDL Manual online, or visit the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security in person at 1150 Foster Avenue in Nashville, TN.
Study up! Then, pass the written exam and the skills test. Finally, apply for your CDL through Driver Services. Be sure to bring a valid DOT Medical Card, proof of your Social Security Number, a valid state driver’s license or CDL from another state, proof of TN residency, and proof of US Citizenship or Lawful Permanent Resident Status.
We strongly encourage all candidates to attend a truck driver’s training school in Tennessee before attempting to pass your test. This will build your confidence and boost your safety credentials.

M&W prides itself on excellent drivers and excellent service. Because of our commitment to excellence, we require that our drivers be experienced and dedicated. To join our team, drivers be at least 23 years of age and possess two years of recent verifiable tractor-trailer experience.
