    I've heard rumors that obtaining a Commercial Driver's Licence (CDL) can cause personal insurance rates to drop. Does anyone know if this holds water, and how much, whether or not it's worth it to obtain a CDL?

    Are you talking about auto insurance?

    I haven't noticed any change since I have had mine. BTW, I have a Class B with P and S endorsements.

    It might be true in NJ - auto insurance regulations and practices can vary from state to state.
