I am studying for my permit and notice that many sections in the test state PERMIT and other ENDORSEMENT. The questions on the permit test do those only have the section for the permit OR the endorsements as well.

The ones marked permit are required to get your CDL Permit (General Knowledge, Air Brakes, and Combination Vehicles).

The endorsements are for tankers, doubles and triples, and hazmat.

You can also do passenger if you want to drive a bus.

The rest are knowledge that will help you, such as securement, weight and balance, etc.

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.

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

Combination Vehicle:

A vehicle with two separate parts - the power unit (tractor) and the trailer. Tractor-trailers are considered combination vehicles.

Doubles:

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Basically, yes. The knowledge ones will be good as well, after you get your permit, like weights and balance, etc.

Mamy companies want tanker as well. We carry liquid in totes that supposedly create a surge but i never felt it.

other companies may require Hazmat. Prime "required" hazmat but i had to test in MO and you can only do hazmat in your home state. 3 yrs later i just got hazmat lol. they still dont know lol

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
