What state are you in Daniel? Does the video you studied apply to your state? Some states have different requirements when it comes to the order in which the brake tests are administered, as well as certain wording they prefer to be used. You need to be sure you are studying info specific to your state.

Dm:

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.

My notes from in-cab pre-trip in Texas: Brake test section:

Turn Engine off/Key On, Chock wheels 26. Push in service handles to release brakes 27. Watch gauges to check for no more than 3 PSI drop in air pressure in 1 minute. 28. Apply foot brake and hold for 1 minute to check for no more than a 4 PSI drop in air pressure. 29. Pump down brakes to until waning lights come on at 60 PSI. 30. Continue to pump down brakes until service handles pop out between 20-40 PSI.

Remove Wheel Chock - Start Engine 31. Bring RPMs between 1500-1800 to check air pressure rises between 90-100 PSI in 45 seconds 32. Hold RPMs between 1500-1800 until the air governor kicks out between 120-140 PSI 33. Trailer brake check. Release tractor service brake. Place in 2nd gear and pull on trailer gently. 34. Tractor brake check. Set tractor brake, release trailer brake. Using 2nd gear pull forward to test. 35. Brake check. Using 2nd gear, pull forward to 5 MPH and stop. Tractor should not pull left or right indicating a brake problem. 36. Pull service handles to set parking brakes.
