Videos, Flash Cards, and Inspection Lists For Learning The Pre-Trip Inspection

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.
