First I want to thank whoever created the TT training program. Awesome program! I was just wondering if the questions on the permit test are very similar? I'm not expecting them to me identical, just wandering if the permit test is similar.

Many are identical :) the ones that aren't are not enough to affect your passing

Rainy is correct. The differences are not enough to worry about. I studied the High Road program, and took the Mississippi CDL-A test. There were some questions I had not seen, but, hey, all you need to do is pass the thing! Which I did.

Handy hint: Suppose you need to answer 50 questions in a computer. Suppose there's a "SKIP" option. Suppose you get a question you're not sure of. SKIP IT, and move on, it doesn't count for or against you. This makes passing the test a whole lot easier!


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.

Compared to Kentucky, the questions wete not the same at all, however the content here, providing you learn it, will get you through the Kentucky written exams easily. Kentucky has many completely ludicrous questions including some answer choices about brake heaters???!!!

I pass the combination and tanker test just this Friday it was pretty easy here in Alabama you can miss up to 5 but they are similar to the practice test most have the skip option

I just added the doubles & triples endorsement in Oregon. The High Road practice tests made this very easy.


Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.
