Will I get a copy of my own after I take it or does anyone from Texas have a score sheet to upload. I searched for an hour and couldn't find it an official one on google. Just what looks like school or local score sheets.

I've never seen one. You don't need it.

I'm thinking that sounds too blunt. Maybe I should ask why you're wanting to see the score sheet?

I never saw mine. Even after testing I didn't see it. If I remember correctly, the officer told me my score. To be honest the score is irrelevant. What's important is whether you pass or fail. In the end your score means nothing. I had the highest score from my truck driving school, yet the students with lower averages got better job offers. Nobody will show any interest in your scores - it's irrelevant to them as an indicator of your ability to do this job.

OP, do you want a copy for study purposes or really for after taking the test?

The scores do not matter. Reason being, if you say the part yet forget one portion of the language, you get partial credit.

Example:

Airbags, properly mounted and secured at both ends, not cracked bent or broken, no abrasions bulges or cuts, not leaking.

If you forget "not leaking" you still get credit for the rest.

Just learn it. You will do fine.

The score sheet for the pre-trip is simply a checklist. Describe the airbag condition, you get a check mark there.

Much like the worksheet your instructor gave you.

Somewhere on Trucking Truth should be a checklist linked to the FMCSA regulations, line by line.

CSA:

Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)

The CSA is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiative to improve large truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities that are related to commercial motor vehicle

FMCSA:

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

The FMCSA was established within the Department of Transportation on January 1, 2000. Their primary mission is to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries.

What Does The FMCSA Do?

  • Commercial Drivers' Licenses
  • Data and Analysis
  • Regulatory Compliance and Enforcement
  • Research and Technology
  • Safety Assistance
  • Support and Information Sharing

Fm:

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.

Looking back at my time in cdl school i actually laugh at how serious i was regarding pretrip study. I would scour the internet for checklists and study guides and pour over them. All the time oblivious to the best study guide out there..... Class. I dont know how your school ia but mine had a pretty good amount of downtime on the range especially when backing practice started. Instead of sitting in the truck while someone else takes a turn take some time to wander over to a truck and just pretrip. Do it in different order everytime. Do a trailer.... Then do the engine.... Then coupling..... Then the side..... Then in cab... Then brakes. Switch it up constantly..... Break down areas into smaller areas..... Just do suspension.... Then brakes....etc. Noone in my class failed pretrip i got 1 point off for not saying "gear" driven air compressor it becomes second nature if your always doing it. Also it sounds wierd but get in there and touch the stuff dont just rattle off names.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

  • 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.
