How do you renew a new mexico cdl permit

Anyone from new mexico here? The dmv never answers any number I call and the exam is a pain to repeat.

I have my permit but the closest dmv in NM has been closed and it's going to expire. How do I renew just the cdl permit?

Where is the manual transmission fluid reservoir if it exists?

I've already read that link several times before you posted it. I'm just curious even if it's not on the test.

I dropped you a link a few days ago to a topic the includes every required pre-trip inspection item. Your best bet is to study for every inspection item and not worry about the rest.

Also, how would you check the manual transmission fluid? Is it a pink fluid with a dipstick like the ATF in my car? The school trucks have no engine compartment reservoir that is transmission fluid so I suspect it is non serviceable.

What are the parking brakes on truck?

In the 7 step method in the cdl manual it says "Turn on parking, clearance, side-marker, and identification lights." How is this different from the step above where you turn on the headlights. I thought all the "running lights" come on with the headlights and that's it. There's no other light switch.

Torque/torsion/tension bar/rod

A consensus of videos now appears torque bar is on the passenger trailer side and torsion bar is on the driver side.

Is it possible to get a copy of the actual score sheet for the pre-trip inspection in Texas?

Will I get a copy of my own after I take it or does anyone from Texas have a score sheet to upload. I searched for an hour and couldn't find it an official one on google. Just what looks like school or local score sheets.

How can a stop light also function while "running"?

My school has running (meaning when the front lights are on, running lights are on) as function of the stop lights on the tractor and trailer. How is that possible? If they are on you can not use them to indicate when the truck is stopping.

For the Texas cdl are there lines on the outside of parallel parking boxes?

The side you cross, all the training videos have a reference line for when to turn but I don't think there is a line there during the test. I asked someone who's been there and they said no.

Torque/torsion/tension bar/rod

What's the difference between the torque, tension, torsion + bar, rod. I've seen one on the right and one on the left suspension of the trailer and bar vs rod seems was the difference in one case where the rod is adjustable on the driver's side and tension was on the right side in the other case if I remember correctly.

I actually meant to say arm as the second modifier. Arm instead of bar or rad meant adjustable driver's side in one youtube video.
