As the subject says, open book policy?

For Permit, Endorsements?

I've just been studying every day, and I'm prepping for Friday to sit at the WI-DMV. I'm not worried about passing, just curious if something out of the ordinary may pop up.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

Nope. Multiple choice. If you've been studying you'll have no problems..

I took mine in GA and it's on the computer as well. I thought it was really nice. It allowed me to review my answer, and then told me right then and there if I was correct or not. I had all the info on the top of the screen showing my progress. Helped me not worry so much. Best of luck.

In CA it's done on paper. Probably because CA can't afford to upgrade.

That would be miserable, surprised they haven't upgraded the system!

Did anybody take it in Ohio?

If so, Do I need to study the sections that include vehicles I don't intend to drive (i.e. passengers, double/triple, hazmat)?

Thank you

I don't live in OH but I can answer that.

You don't need to take those. Those sections are endorsements. Endorsements are basically just upgrades to your license so you can drive another type of commercial vehicle. You don't need to take those. It's not a requirement at all. But we do recommend you study them so you'll have more job opportunities in the future. But in the end it's all up to you.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I took my endorsement tests last week here in WA and the computers crashed half way through. They tried to print off the tests so I could finish by hand but the state system wouldn't let them. So I had to go back the next day to finish. At least the system started me back up where I left off.
