Read the SC Book, but studied mostly the material offered here. Passed the Permit Exams on my first go. Great Course and highly recommended! Missed only 2 questions on general, made a 100 on Combinations and Air brakes, no questions missed. Noticed one discrepancy from the material here and the SC book.

Material here says,

"3.1 Inspecting Cargo

As part of your pre-trip inspection , make sure the truck is not overloaded and that the cargo is balanced and secured properly. Inspect the cargo and its securing devices again within 25 miles after beginning a trip."

For SC Exam it is 50 miles, and it states within first 50 miles and every 150 there after in the SC book. The tests here at trucking truth beat that inspect within first 25 into my brain, but it's all good! A pass is a pass. All the other practice test questions here are spot on for SC, as are the foot notes on the material that needs to be memorized!

Again thanks for whoever took the time to create this free site!

Pre-trip Inspection:

A pre-trip inspection is a thorough inspection of the truck completed before driving for the first time each day.

Federal and state laws require that drivers inspect their vehicles. Federal and state inspectors also may inspect your vehicles. If they judge a vehicle to be unsafe, they will put it “out of service” until it is repaired.

The training material here is based on the IL manual, so there will be extremely slight differences but like we always say, the differences will never be substantial and should never keep you from getting an impressive score.

Congratulations on all your success sir. There's still a lot of hard work ahead of you so don't stop striving for your goal.

Thanks! And yes, there is no reason someone shouldn't blow the exams out the water given the material here and what was said to focus on.

I'm in a trucking school that also does weekends. 8 weekends total, have completed my first weekend, 7 more to go! Permit out the way, now I can focus on studying the next big obstacle, the pre trip! Lot's to learn!
