I am new to CDL and currently doing well with the High Road Trucking Training. For any Prime Inc drivers, is there anything that different on the permit test from The High Road training ?

Any noticeable changes or missing info needed to pass the test ? Thanks !!

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.

A lot of new drivers that come to TruckingTruth has used the High Road CDL Training Program and successfully passed their tests, it's right out of the manual itself and setup to help you learn the information. So if you're doing good on the High Road CDL Training Program, chances are you'll pass the test without any problems.

I personally didn't use the Highroad CDL Training Program that much, I mostly used the manual provided by the school but it has all the same information in it, and even provide some extra training for TX I believe it is which has their own questions on a few things.

Anthony Agua, I did the High Road Training at home before school and it's very complete and should cover whatever your state throws at you. I also obtained the Wisconsin Commercial Vehicle Manual and read everything except the endorsement stuff I didn't need. All the written tests were very easy after that.

It's all I used testing in CA a few months back before going to Prime. I'll say if it makes you feel content , pick up a CDL manual for Missouri and browse it after finishing the high road for the first time.

You'll feel confident each time you go through it. I did it twice and knocked out the test with all the possible permit endorsements I could the first test attempt.

Good luck

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

That’s all I used got there on Sunday had my permit Tuesday. However just so u know there is a section in the training about logs. It’s extremely important to understand logs to make money out here.

I did high road for Prime MO and passed all sections first try.

Learn the material, do not memorize the questions and answer cause they wont be exact. Read carefully.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up On logbooks. I figured that was on it at least some what, so am studying all they told me to.

Logbook:

A written or electronic record of a driver's duty status which must be maintained at all times. The driver records the amount of time spent driving, on-duty not driving, in the sleeper berth, or off duty. The enforcement of the Hours Of Service Rules (HOS) are based upon the entries put in a driver's logbook.

As long as I can see your rear tires and have 12 to 15 seconds of following distance, we can in fact share the lane ! Lol. Good try thought bro.
