CDL Test

The Commercial Drivers License (CDL) test is required in order to drive any vehicle weighing more than 26,000 lbs. However, if you are transporting hazardous material you may be required to obtain a CDL as well. There are several “minimum requirements” that the government enforces.

In order to obtain a CDL, one must take a written test and pass with at least an 80%. There is also a driving test, where you are required to perform a variety of maneuvers successfully. Private institutions and facilities may be permitted by the state to conduct these tests, however the instructors must have the same certification as state officials.

Maneuverability Test: The maneuverability test analyzes three primary driving skills, and must be conducted in the vehicle of the applicant. The first task is pre­trip inspection, where you will be tested on your overall knowledge of the vehicle. The next part is vehicle control where the applicant be instructed to move forwards, backwards, and around cones successfully. Finally, the examiner accompanies the driver on the road, which tests the ability to successfully turn across lanes and merge on highways.

Written Test: The written test contains questions in many different areas concerning larger commercial vehicles. This test consists of general knowledge as well as vehicle specifics, such as hydraulic or air brakes. Each state has a different format of the test, even though all of the questions are essentially the same. The best way to prepare for the written test is to take lots of practice tests and understand the concepts, not just memorize the answers Free CDL Training Information & Practice Tests
