The Pre-Trip Inspection is one of the tougher parts of passing the CDL exam at truck driving school because there is a lot of memorization involved. The purpose of the Pre-Trip Inspection is to be able to do a thorough safety inspection on a commercial vehicle before heading out onto the highway. Here you will find links to pre-trip inspection videos, flash cards, and inspection lists to help you prepare for the CDL exam.
You have to check this out. We've setup the entire pre-trip inspection on flash cards that include pictures of the different areas of the truck and a list of the items that need to be checked. You can view the pictures with or without the parts labeled to make it easier in the beginning, or more difficult as you get better.
This will really help you memorize the items that need to be checked and what they need to be checked for. So check out our pre-trip inspection flash cards.
This pre-trip is based upon Prime's way of doing it. It's extremely thorough and Daniel adds a ton of advice to help you understand the process and get through the pre-trip inspection exams. Check it out!
