You must have one (1) year of driving experience. If you are under 21 years old, you will be restricted to intrastate operation and will not be able to apply for Hazardous Materials, Passenger, or School Bus Endorsements.

No; Federal guidelines require that a CDL driver complete an application with updated information and required certification for each renewal. If a CDL driver moves or changes names at a time other than renewal, the driver is required to apply for a duplicate license within 30 days of the change.
