Hey TT , I'm looking to add the M endorsement to my B CDL and was curious if any of you have this . Its more directed to the flatbedders out there and I was wondering as its only required by NY and AL since 2010 if you have run into a company or situation where they wanted or required it . I'm getting it just to have it and perhaps make myself stand out a bit more . The info in High Road is the best I've come across to study for this test as there is not too much out there to study from . The NY CDL book doesn't even have a section on it and I've got the newest edition to date , strange as its been an endorsement since 2010 . I do own a book with a section on it titled CDL exam 5th edition , but its small and has about 20 questions . If anybody has taken this test how'd did you find it ? Was it a breeze or more difficult . I've done well with the practice tests myself .

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.

Have you used our NY coil section in the High Road CDL Training Program?

It's all covered in there and all the material came from The NY state manual.

Idk about AL but do you have an NY CDL? If the answer is no, then you do not need the endorsement. If the answer is yes, then you will need it if you intend on hauling coils. That is my understanding of the NY coil endorsement but I could be wrong

I thought they did away with the Alabama one, but JuiceBox is correct. You must have a New York license to get the endorsement.

Only NY CDL holders need the NY Coil endorsement. If fact, you can't even get the endorsement with a CDL from any other state. It just isn't necessary unless you're from NY.

Some time back, AL tried to have their own coil endorsement but their securement requirements were tougher than federal standards allowed. Thus the AL coil endorsement was shot down.

Bottom line: If you're not from NY, don't sweat it. If you are, study the NY Coil section of the High Road CDL Training Program and you'll have it wrapped up easy peasy.

Excellent , Thanks . I do have a NY CDL so that's why I figured on getting it . I have been using High Roads Section on coil for about 2 weeks now and its been super comprehensive so thanks to Brett for putting that together as there is no section in The actual CDL liscence book for NY to study from , I know I own it . I got to laugh at my home state being the ONLY one that requires it but its only 5 bucks to test so not a big deal . Just to quell my confusion You out of staters don't need it even if hauling into or through NY , am I correct on that ?
