I have been studying the high road manual for about a week now and passing all quizzes after each section. I went back to do some comparison with the Georgia CDL manual that has been revised in 2015 and noticed a few different changes in certain sections which has me a little worried about going to take the test now. With that being said should I be studying the Georgia CDL manual?

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Did they change the wording or the meaning?? Sometimes they change a word or two to throw you off...

The various state manuals have a few differences between them but it's nothing to be concerned with. You can read through your Georgia manual if you like but you're going to get super high scores using nothing but our High Road Training Program and you're going to learn the materials a whole lot better.

I too noticed a few differences in my Washington State CDL manual and High Road Testing. But don't worry, you will still easily pass your tests with high scores. I did. I also told my classmates about High Road. There are 5 in my class. Only 1 went through it, besides myself. Of the 5, 2 of us passed all of it, 1 failed all of the 3 tests and 2 failed 1 section. It feels silly to even mention who the 2 that passed all the tests were.

The connection between the High Road Training Program and passing is proven. You and your buddy are proof of that.

The student who failed all three sections, was he taking class & study seriously, or did he think he was still in high school?

The 1 who failed all 3 tests not once, but 3 times, did not speak much English. On his 3rd attempt, DOL provided him an interpreter and he still failed.

It took me a few days to get through it. But it was well worth it.
