I started the high road cdl training. Should I expect every question on the real exam be the exact same as these questions? Methods and advice on how to study is appreciated. I'm real close to making a commitment. Just waiting on the company to approve my background. It's looking promising.

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.

Hey Bryan

I am going to school on Feb 12th for Wil-Trans in Springfield MO and they send me the General Questions, Combination and Air Brake questions plus they suggested the phone app DMV Genie and you pick the state of where you will take the CDL exam and it is pretty much the same questions as what they sent me.

Also, I have studied from TT and it has given me lots of information of general knowledge. I can go through the questions and either get a perfect score or a few wrong because I read the question wrong and me being stupid, lol.

Check it out and let us know and good luck and good luck to me.

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.

Wil-Trans:

Darrel Wilson bought his first tractor in 1980 at age 20, but, being too young to meet OTR age requirements, he leased the truck out and hired a driver.

Through growth and acquisition, Wil-Trans now employs over 200 drivers, and has a long-standing partnership with Prime, Inc. to haul their refrigerated freight. The family of businesses also includes Jim Palmer Trucking and O & S Trucking.

Most of the questions will be word for word. If you do well on the High Road questions you'll be OK for your state.

Two things: there were a few questions on my Mississippi CDL test that I had not seen on High Road. But from what I learned, I worked out my answers.

Also, most computer terminal tests allow you to skip questions. As long as your turn in fifty answers, you finish the test. So a strategy is to skip the questions you have doubts about, and stuff your answers with the ones you know.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Thanks. There is a lot of material! But if high road covers it all I'm not going to worry much about finding info elsewhere.

Yes, the High Road will get you through. Just go through all the sections it says are for the permit. The rest you can do later. There is no such thing as too much knowledge.

It's incredibly important to actually read and learn the materials in our High Road CDL Training Program. No one has the exact questions given on the permit exam but we know the type of questions they like to ask and the subject matter they tend to cover.

The High Road has the actual CDL manual built in, which are the materials the test will cover. If you read through the materials and answer all of the questions as you go you'll do fantastic on your permit and endorsement exams. You should take the endorsement exams also and get those out of the way now. They're fairly easy once you cover the materials in our program.

Many people make the mistake of trying to memorize the CDL Practice Tests or only do the questions from the High Road. That's not going to work. The practice questions are great as a study aid to keep you sharp before the test, but that's no way to learn the materials.

Remember, you're going to be driving an 80,000 pound building on wheels over snow-covered mountains and through the largest, most congested cities in the country. You're not studying for a certificate to knit blankets. If you don't know what you're doing out there the consequences are dire. So study those materials hard and work your way through our High Road Training and you'll do fantastic on the exams. You'll also be well prepared with a solid foundation to begin your training.

Don’t study just to pass the test. Study to master the subject. Then it won’t matter how the question is asked you will be able to answer it.
