Starting My New Career With Prime Inc.

To be perfectly honest I personally studied very little pre trip until they gave me the packet at orientation.

But seeing for other students it's definitely worth studying beforehand if you can, alot of students get trainers right away and didn't have the extra few days to practice like I did. Once your on a truck with a trainer it can be hard to find time for pre trip practice.

Thanks, Victor. I'll keep studying. Sounds like your Prime journey is moving along good. Good luck and safe travels.

Starting My New Career With Prime Inc.

Hi, Victor. Sounds like you're off to a great start with Prime. I'm starting at Prime in about a week and a half. I'm excited and a little nervous as well.

I've been trying to learn the Pre-Trip Inspection the way Prime does it. I've been studying Daniel B's study guide on here and I asked my recruiter at Prime if she could send me Prime's Pre-Trip inspection list, which she did.

I was wondering, did you have most of this learned before you got to Orientation? I'm working hard on it, but it's a little harder for me to cement in my mind without looking at a truck physically. Also, I read from Daniel B's study guide that Prime requires you to do 3 sections (in cab, lighting, and coupling), and they will then pick a 4th section for you to do as well. Is this still how they do it?

If anyone else has answers on this as well, I would appreciate the feedback.

Thanks.

Pre-Trip Inspection - My Way! A must see!

Hi, I will be starting with Prime in a couple of weeks. Thanks to the HRT on here, I was able to do good on the written permit tests. Now I'm getting ready to study this pre trip inspection study guide. It looks awesome and very informative...thanks for the hard work that went into it.

I have a question: is this still the updated checklist/wording for Prime's pt inspection? Has anything changed or been modified?

I want to be as prepared as I can be before I get to Prime.

Again, thanks for this.

Thanks, 87 Wrangler. I'm hopeful this "skip" option is still in effect. Appreciate the suggestions as well.

General Knowledge Test Question

Hi, I've been studying the HRT for a little while each night for a few weeks now. I've decided to split up my CDL written test and start off by just taking the General Knowledge part tomorrow. I feel like I am learning the concepts behind the material pretty well...but the wording is what gets me tripped up sometimes. I have to really pay attention to the "except" and answers that are "none of these" or "all of these." I'm a bit nervous about tomorrow and really hoping I do well.

My question is this: I've heard that I will have the option to "skip" certain questions on the test that I'm unsure of, then come back to them at the end of the test if needed. But when I made my appt. at my local dmv, the lady seemed to think that was not an option. Has anyone taken the written portion lately and happen to know if the "skip" function is still an option?

Thanks!

High Road CDL Training Program

Thanks for that info, Turtle. That puts my mind a bit more at ease. I plan to keep studying hard for the next few weeks, but it's good to know I can skip something I'm unsure of.

High Road CDL Training Program

Thanks so much for that information. That is very helpful. Just to clarify...when I take the written CDL exam for my state, am I able to skip a question and keep going on to the next question without a penalty? Will the computer keep generating new questions?

better to just skip those and try to get 50 right answers before answering enough wrong to fail....hope this helps.

Question About CDL Written Test

Hi all. I am currently studying the High Road material and am very impressed with it. I have a question: I plan on starting with Prime soon and will need to take my written test soon after I arrive there. I notice some sections of the High Road material are labeled "endorsement" and the others are "permit." I know I need to study all the sections that are labeled "permit," but what about the sections labeled "endorsement"? Will those sections be on the written test as well for a typical Class A exam for Prime?

Appreciate any information on this. Glad to have found this website.
