What follows is a breakdown of the Michigan CDL fees, including any endorsements and additional fees that may be required.

Michigan CDL Application Fees

How much you can expect to pay for your CDL application will depend on the specific class of license you want to get. A base operator license costs $25 while a CDL vehicle group designation costs $25 as well. If you need to make corrections to your application, you will need to pay $18. Endorsements cost $5.

So you see, getting a CDL in Michigan isn’t all that expensive, but this way you’ll have the right amount of money on hand when you go to apply.

Background Check Fees

Some people who pursue a Michigan CDL also want to get a hazardous materials endorsement. To do this, you need to get a background check from the TSA. You already need to have your CDL or CDL permit at this point. You’ll also need to provide identification and proof of legal status.

From there, you’ll need to go to a fingerprint office and send your fingerprints to the TSA. It costs $30 to have your fingerprints taken in Michigan. The TSA background check costs $34 and the FBI background check cost $17.25.
