    Damond is close but not a cigar. What you did 23 years ago is as irrelevant as showing up at DMV with a truck and tractor. You will have to go to a school and pay. First you need to get a permit by taking the air brake test and I forget the others to do up front and get a DOT health card.learning how to recite the pretrip inspection without failure, perform the air brake test in cab and prove to the school you can back a 30' trailer into a dock area, back up within the lines for 100'. then you take the test by showing the bored DMV person that you can do the pretrip and drive without putting the trailers tires into a bike lane or solid white line in a turn. You also have to parallel park the trailer.

    Take the Haz Mat after the behind the wheel test. That way you don't have to pretend you are carrying a load that needs a placard. Tank endorsement is separate from that.

    The only thing Damond was off on is the time it takes for the background check for Haz Mat. They also have a TWIX card ($135) go into some refineries and Ports to P or D so you don't require an escort. It's the same background check as Haz Mat but the Coast Guard decides which places require them. The refinery in Martinez just above the Concord airport does but Chevron in richmond does not...at least in the freight receiving areas. Any how they send the OK straight to DMV. DMV will not let you test unless they have it come back OK. Costs $89.

    That is the very long version of you are starting from step 1 regardless of the state you are in.

    only by using fact the regulation says which you will get a drivers' license at sixteen, you're nevertheless a minor baby.

    that won't help... from that long ago, you will need to take the tests again... You also have to get your haz mat edorsement as well. Since 9/11 it's a bit more difficult, you have to get an FBI fingerprint done, which takes a couple months to get back...

    I know this isn't the answer you want... however, if you get the test done, and find a company that will take you on, with the past experience, you will be able to use one of their trucks to do the road test.

    don't think you can get an old drivers licence. but check your dd214. see what it has on it. should have everything you did, (qualified for).
