    I just went in to get my medical card and was told that I must be 21+. Maybe I missed something, but I was under the very strong impression that you have to have a DOT card to get a class A license, and you can get said license at 18. Is it not required for intrastate? Thanks.

    Does Texas even require a medical to run intrastate?
    Or for that matter any other state?
    As I've never looked into it I can actually see it not being needed.
     
    User217 Thanks this.
