Where on the net are the best and most accurate practice tests to prep for a CDL in Texas? I got this software from this one site for they promised their test are accurate well they weren't...Their airbrakes for Texas CDL were nothing like the real test. I failed miserably. I really want to know the tests, learn the answers and just move on man....

I only need General Knowledge, Airbrakes, and Pre-trip and I'm done.

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.

Miqote, I know you've been reading in here enough to see us bragging on our very own High Road Training Program.

I don't care which state you're in that thing will whip you right into shape to be an A student. I tested in Texas without even so much as cracking open the state's manual, all I did was use the High Road Training Program.

Quit your useless searching of the internet and click on that link above and you're home free!

I know all about the fact that there are a few questions on the Texas exams about farm equipment and required positions of marker lighting and such, but if you know the material in the High Road Training Program, I promise you that you will feel like a master Jedi when you are taking those tests. Even if you miss a few of those oddball questions that Texas throws in there you still will impress those ladies behind the counter at the DMV with how fast you run through those exams, all while achieving a really high score. By the way. The High Road actually teaches you the material, as opposed to giving you word for word questions that you can memorize. The great advantage to that is of course that you now actually know what you are talking about, and since the computer will give you a random mix of the questions at any given time you are testing, then you can answer the questions no matter how trickily it is worded, and trust me they can come up with some tricky wording. HaHa, the High Road even has you covered on the trickily worded questions! I can't tell you how many times we've had folks come in here complaining that an answer on the High Road was wrong, when 99.9% percent of the time they didn't read it right, or they ignored an important word like "not" in the question. Trust me on this - your search should be over - get to work on that High Road Training Program, and you'll be golden!

Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that it is absolutely FREE!

Let me be clear about something. There's no such thing as a state that gives out its questions and answers ahead of time. Do you want to learn the materials or are you looking for the actual questions and answers that will appear on the test? It amazes me but every so often I get a comment from someone saying the questions on the actual exam weren't all the same as those on the High Road. Well, DUH! No kidding! Why would they bother giving the test at all if they were giving out the questions and answers ahead of time?

Read through the materials and answer the questions in the High Road and you'll do great.

And don't forget, the point isn't to pass a written exam. The point is to learn the knowledge you'll need to make sure you don't kill yourself or someone else out there on the highway. When you're going down a steep mountain grade weighing 78,000 pounds there is no time to look up how to properly descend a grade without burning up your brakes. You had better know it already.

Old School is right about "Impressing those Ladies behind the counter". After using the High Road for several months and LEARNING the material, I completed all of the tests w/ all Endorsements (except Passenger and School Bus), in 45 minutes and scored 100% on all of them. They were absolutely BLOWN AWAY! Thanks again BRETT!smile.gif
