Does anyone know if the endorsement questions vary much from the high road training program? For instance hazmat do you have to memorize the placecards and meanings? I understand its good to know but for testing purposes I'm trying to narrow it down slightly.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

I used the high road program and all of the question were very close for the hazmat test in Michigan

I studied the High Road, reset it, and went through it again. I passed all of Wisconsin's tests with relative ease. The HAZMAT questions either were identical or very closely mirrored to those in the High Road. Just pay very strict attention to the wording of questions, they try to trip you up with that.

Awesome that's what I will be doing is the Wisconsin one did you have to take your skills test first in order to take the test for the hazmat endorsement?

I get fingerprinted Monday, and then when I pass the CDL driving exams, HAZMAT will be on my CDL as an endorsement.

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.

For hazmat , dept of homeland does the background check on you. They then tell dmv of your state you pass the background. The state then will issue the license.

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.

So when do you take the written test? When you get your permit or later. Sorry it's may have been explained but I still don't understand
