- At least 50 feet
- At least 25 feet
- At least 100 feet
- At least 75 feet
Quote From Page 58 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
Bus drivers are required to stop at drawbridges that do not have a signal light or traffic control attendant. Stop at least 50 feet before the draw of the bridge. Look to make sure the draw is completely closed before crossing. You do not need to stop, but you must slow down and make sure it is safe when:
- There is a traffic light showing green.
- The bridge has an attendant or traffic officer that controls traffic whenever the bridge opens.
- Days of On-Duty Time
- Department of Timekeeping
- Department of Transportation
- Diary of Time
Quote From Page 0 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
As a truck or bus driver, you'll be required to record and abide by all working and driving limitations which were created by the Department of Transportation (DOT). The rules govern a commercial driver's working and resting hours and are referred to as Hours of Service (HOS) Regulations. In this section we will guide you through the HOS regulations and teach you the best methods of properly recording your hours.
Everyone in trucking refers to the Department of Transportation as "The DOT." If you don't know this, you'll sound like a rookie. You don't want that, do ya!?
- It can be used by drivers to inform the shipper or receiver of any delay in the shipment
- When involved in an accident, drivers should call the emergency response telephone number instead of calling police or fire
- Receivers can call the number to check the status of the shipment and verify there have been no spills while en-route
- It can be used by emergency responders to obtain information about any hazardous materials involved in a spill or fire
Quote From Page 93 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
Shipping papers also must list an emergency response telephone number. The emergency response telephone number is the responsibility of the shipper. It can be used by emergency responders to obtain information about any hazardous materials involved in a spill or fire.
- No more than 2 psi
- No more than 1 psi
- No more than 4 psi
- No more than 3 psi
Quote From Page 117 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
With the engine running, build the air pressure to governed cut-out (100-125 psi). Shut off the engine, turn the electrical power on, chock your wheels, if necessary, release the tractor protection valve and parking brake (push in), fully apply the foot brake and hold it for one minute. Check the air gauge to see if the air pressure drops more than 3 pounds in 1 minute (single vehicle) or 4 pounds in 1 minute (combination vehicle) with brake applied. When brake is unapplied, air pressure drops more than 2 pounds in 1 minute with a single vehicle and 3 pounds in 1 minute in a combination vehicle.
Be sure to memorize how much air loss is acceptable when the service brakes are applied and not applied.
- Prepare shipping papers
- Keep hazardous materials shipping papers and emergency response information in the proper place
- Refuse leaking packages and shipments
- Placard the vehicle
Quote From Page 87 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
- Makes sure the shipper has identified, marked and labeled the hazardous materials properly.
- Refuses leaking packages and shipments.
- Placards his vehicle when loading, if required.
- Safely transports the shipment without delay.
- Follows all special rules about transporting hazardous materials.
- Keeps hazardous materials shipping papers and emergency response information in the proper place
Be sure to understand the different responsibilities for:
- The shipper
- The carrier
- The driver
- 90 psi
- 110 psi
- 120 psi
- 100 psi
Quote From Page 66 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
Check air compressor governor cut-in and cut-out pressures: Pumping by the air compressor should start at about 100 psi and stop at about 125 psi. (Check manufacturer's specifications.) Run the engine at a fast idle. The air governor should cut out the air compressor at about the manufacturer's specified pressure. The air pressure shown by your gauge(s) will stop rising. With the engine idling, step on and off the brake to reduce the air tank pressure. The compressor should cut in at about the manufacturer's specified cut-in pressure. The pressure should begin to rise.
It is important to memorize the "cut in" and "cut out" levels for the air governor as well as the terminology.
Cut in: When the governor tells the air compressor to start pumping air into the air tanks. This should occur when air pressure falls to about 100 psi.
Cut out: When the governor tells the air compressor to stop pumping air into the air tanks. This should occur when the air pressure has risen to about 125 psi.
- Spending 8 consecutive hours off duty
- Spending 8 consecutive hours in a sleeper berth
- Spending 8 consecutive hours either in a sleeper berth or off duty
- None of these answers are correct
Quote From Page 0 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
2. Eight hours of sleeper berth time:
You may also use the sleeper berth to extend the 14 hour limit. Any period in the sleeper berth of at least 8 consecutive hours will not count as part of the 14 hours, and therefore, would allow you to extend the time during which you could use your maximum 11 hours of driving.
Remember, in order to extend the 14 hour limit, all 8 hours must be logged as sleeper berth time. You can't spend the 8 hours off duty or switch back and forth between sleeper berth and off duty time.
In most cases, it makes more sense to simply stay in the sleeper berth for 2 more hours (total of 10 consecutive hours in the sleeper berth). That way, instead of extending the 14 hour limit, you create an entirely new starting point for the 14 hour limit and will have all 14 hours available again.
- Dangerous when wet
- All of these must be placarded at any quantity
- Organic Peroxide
Quote From Page 95 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
- 10 minutes
- 30 minutes
- 20 minutes
- 5 minutes
Quote From Page 27 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
If you must stop on a road or the shoulder of any road, you must put out your emergency warning devices within 10 minutes.
Pay special attention to this and memorize it. There is a good chance this question will show up on your written exam.
Quote From Page 89 Of The Illinois CDL Manual:
Placards are used to warn others of hazardous materials. Placards are signs put on the outside of a vehicle that identify the hazard class of the cargo. A placarded vehicle must have at least four identical placards. They are put on the front, rear and both sides of the vehicle. Placards must be readable from all four directions. They are 10 3/4-inches square, square-on-point, in a diamond shape. Cargo tanks and other bulk packaging display the ID number of their contents on placards, or orange panels or white square-on-point displays that are the same size as placards, and placed near the placards.
