First of all, need say thanks for all people who created and maintain this forum, it helps me out up to today, I did all my preparation through the available material found here. Tomorrow will be my first written tests, I'm planning take 5 tests at once, the first three tests and two endorsements of is tanker and doubles-triples. My tests will be tomorrow at 12:30pm in Florida. So later on I will come back here to say if I succeeded or failed, I've being struggling with this situation of the pandemia, of had hold me back for almost 3 months and finally the day comes, praying for get it from the first trying.


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.
