Oh man, have we got you covered!

Work your way through our High Road CDL Training Program. It will make it so easy to learn the materials. Everyone who uses it does really well with their tests.

Welllll that may be so for the REST of the exam, but I FLUNKED IMMEDIATELY because nowhere in the entire training course did it teach me about the DIFFERENT rules and regulations of trucking particular to TEXAS.

I was getting 98-100% consistently on ALL the sections in the course, and scheduled my exam with the State office with complete confidence.

They sat me down for the FIRST of 8 or ten parts of the exam, and up pop questions about colored flags and things I had never HEARD of. Turns out they start your exam with that section specific to Texas - AND STOP THE ENTIRE EXAM upon failing any section! SENT ME HOME A FLUNKEE! What a PIN in MY balloon! I mean, the maximum heights and widths were different, and WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT, the FEDERAL ones were there as "wrong" answers, on several questions, for me to choose!

I'm so disappointed. Lost a lot of confidence in this training program.

Couldn't I have been warned SOMEWHERE in the whole training course about the "special" questions and answers for MY STATE? The only thing anywhere was some New York Coil section, and I'm not in New York. Planning to have passed the first time thru, now I am concerned perspective employers will be able to see I could not pass the exam on the FIRST TRY. Is there training for TEXAS PARTICULARS available free online? - UnHappyPappy

Endorsements: from day 1, or later?

I’d like to drive, at some point in time, using endorsements like HazMat, Tanker ... but I see jobs listed for tanker drivers requiring 18 mos experience etc.

Should I just get my basic permit, to start, and then study for and attempt the written tests for endorsements later? Or go for all I can from the start?

What about the endorsement(s) where special driving tests are required?

Much appreciation for any and all replies
