Permit Prep

Get ready for orientation

Get your Class A Permit

Before heading to orientation for the Prime Training Program, you will need to obtain your Commercial Learner’s Permit (CLP). Our training program will help you earn your Class A CDL, but first, you will need to obtain your permit on your own in your home state. The info below will help guide you through the process of getting your permit.


  • Your recruiter will schedule you for a DOT Physical near you. 
  • Download the Driver Pulse app by Tenstreet on your phone. 
  • Use Driver Pulse app to view the DOT Physical appointment information and barcode. The clinic will scan your barcode from the app. 
  • Take DOT Physical and obtain a long form physical (Medical Examination Report Form) plus your medical card. 
  • You will need to take the long form physical and medical card both to the DMV for permit testing as well as to Prime’s orientation.
