Dmv question

Thank you for this answer.

Switched jobs due to covid. Only driving part-time as motor coach travel has been slow to rebound. So now I'm working for PennDOT as a CDL examiner. During the alley dock, the rear-most portion of your vehicle must end up within the boundaries of the 3-foot box at the rear of the "alley". Does not matter where your tires are as long as they are within the side boundaries. You have 2 free pull-ups before accumulating points, as well as 2 free "looks". More than 2 looks is an auto-fail. BTW, I do stress that the 2 look limit is for testing purposes on the test pad only, and if you need to GOAL 20 times on the job after the test, by all means do so.

Which state? it maybe different I tested it IL if anything left the box it was a automatic failure. Same if your tires are on the line

I’m in California . So that’s a good question. I’m going to do it so my tires don’t hit the line just to make sure but i just want to know for sure what the rule was.

Dmv question

When you do your alley dock and need to get your trailer bumper into the 3 foot box, is it ok if your tires cross the front line of that box or is it a fail? I’ve asked my instructors and got two diff answers. One said it’s a fail, one said it’s ok as long as my trailer bumper doesn’t go over the back line of the box. Please clarify. Thanks.
