Again I'm halted after answering a question correctly. The Oklahoma cdl manual : The air brake distance at 55 mph on dry pavement adds 32 feet. So at 55 mph for an average driver under good traction an break condition, the total stopping distance is over 450 feet. High road choice for question halted my progress for choosing the over 400 ft. shows 300 is correct. Has anyone ever got this type conflict?

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.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Sounds like you answering based on what your states cdl manual says, not what high road teaches you. At this time high road is not based on individual states but a more universal system. You can't learn on one system and test on another and expect the same results. I would stick to the high road program first THEN go through your states cdl book to find anything that's different and learn that. That's what I did for Texas.

I saw brett say somewhere he was planning to eventually make state versions of hrt program so this issue doesn't happen.

So, I'm a bit confused here...

the HR training manual says that wedge type brakes "may be self adjusting, or require manual adjustment".

The HR training practice question says that "all wedge type brakes are self adjusting"

But you are saying that "All wedge type brakes are not self-adjusting". If thats the case then all wedge type brakes are adjusted manually. Do you mean that not all wedge type brakes are self adjusting?

I hate to split hairs here, but the wording is confusing, and trying to remember to answer questions wrong is even more confusing. I ended up being halted 6 times total, so I just re-set the questions. Is there any other questions you know of that come up wrong?

Did you see the word "except" at the end of the question? I think you missed that.

Ok, cool. I guess maybe I'm over analizing the brake question. I plan on starting fresh at the beginning of the HR training program.

What about the bus endorsement question. Which answer for that question is the correct response?

The correct answer is the one in green - "must be 18 years of age or older" - because it asks which one of the following requirements is not correct about getting a charter bus endorsement. You must be 21 years old to get a charter bus endorsement.
