The tanker endorsement applies to drivers who wish to drive a tank in Class A, B, or C CDL. To add this endorsement to your CLP/CDL, you must pass a knowledge test on the problems posed by large volume liquid cargos. The Arkansas CDL tank vehicles test consists of 20 questions. To pass, you must correctly answer at least 16 questions (80%). The AR tanker test covers the following sections of the Arkansas CDL Manual: Driving Safely, Combination Vehicles, Tank Vehicles, Hazardous Materials.
