Brett the other site that I did the test at was thetruckersreport.com They have some questions that I never seen here and they kind of threw me at first. There were also a couple that I believe they had the wrong answer to.

Your program is heads and tails above everyone else's. You help me make sense out of the CDL manual. I read through it before I found this site. I was as lost as can be. Thank you for all of your work Brett.

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, thanks for letting me know which site you were talking about and I'm glad our program really helped you learn the materials!

It's of course impossible to create every possible question imaginable from the CDL manual. But we went through it beginning to end and created about 700 questions from it on all of the things you would most likely be tested on. So anyone that goes through our program first is going to get super high scores on their CDL written exams and be miles ahead of the rest of their class at school. No question about it!

Brett, Truckercountry.com also gives you the complete quiz before scoring it. I wasn't on the site long enough but I think you have to read the manual first and then take the tests.

Ok, everybody keeps saying this program is the best there is, I vehemently disagree!! I flat refuse to "learn" faulty information..

here is a word for word EXACT QUOTE from page 43, which the question I am being told i answered wrong is based on.. "On older vehicles, the parking brake may be controlled by a lever" your prgogram has repeatedly told me that is wrong and this "You apply the parking brakes by using a circle shaped red knob" is correct you all can keep kissing each other's asses and reinforcing the dumbing down of America, I'm going elsewhere, thanx for nothing

Keith with all due respect, you are the first person who I've ever come across who refuses to take his time and really benefit from a great learning tool. We have absolutely no reason to be kissing each others a$$ as you put it, the only thing we've done with you is to bend over backward and try to help you understand the most simple and basic way of getting started in undertaking this new adventure in life. So my friend good luck else where, but I want to leave you with an exact word for word quote from your last post that I hope you'll think about before you go loosing your cool next time.

I flat refuse to "learn"

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Instead of getting mad, offer some constructive feedback. Maybe a question is wrong. Let them know in a nice way. I am sure that it will be fixed if an error is made.

Great Answer!

Keith, I think after thinking further about this you are simply not understanding the question. You seem to be a little short on patience and that is probably what's causing your snag. The questions are sometimes worded in such a way that you have to read them carefully. The very simple reason they are done this way is because that is exactly how they are often times in the actual state exams. They want to see if you are paying attention and understand the little nuances about the rules. If you just race through the question and don't really understand what it is asking you for then you are doomed to answer it incorrectly, you may even be able to quote the answer you gave from the manual, but if that's not what the question is asking you for then you still haven't gotten the answer correct.

Now, we have occasionally had someone find a mistake in the system and we are thankful for them pointing it out to us. If you would be so kind as to quote the question that is snagging you up Brett would be able to determine what's happening here and maybe help you move forward. So if you could do that for us we would appreciate it greatly.
