An individual may still be 19 years of age for Intrastate driving without those endorsements.
An individual must be 21 years of age for Interstate driving with or without those endorsements.
CDL Regulation Change - Real ID Act
Effective October 2016- Alaska is actively complying with Federal Law that requires commercial drivers to prove they are a lawful Permanent Resident or U.S. Citizen.
You must have one of the required legal documents (ie: Birth Certificate or Passport) with you when making any transactions at DMV that requires a change to your record (ie: first time license, renewal, reissue, endorsement changes, name, address, etc.). This only effects your Commercial Driver License or Permit.
