Hi all. I am currently studying the High Road material and am very impressed with it. I have a question: I plan on starting with Prime soon and will need to take my written test soon after I arrive there. I notice some sections of the High Road material are labeled "endorsement" and the others are "permit." I know I need to study all the sections that are labeled "permit," but what about the sections labeled "endorsement"? Will those sections be on the written test as well for a typical Class A exam for Prime?

Appreciate any information on this. Glad to have found this website.

Welcome aboard Russ!

No, you will not be quizzed on those sections. Each of those endorsement has it's own test. I believe Prime wants you to have the tanker endorsement so you can haul liquid bearing totes. So, you may want to study that section so that you can get that endorsement, but Prime will allow you to get it later if that is what you choose. It is just easier to get your endorsements out of the way while taking your permit test. Once you have that Class A license you are likely to be so busy that you simply don't have the time to go take more tests.

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
