Hey everyone!

So I took the questions from our High Road Training Program that pertain to getting your CDL permit and endorsements, namely all of the questions except the "logbook" and "weight & balance" sections, and built an Android app for people to practice with.

The app is very simple and straight forward. It has 565 practice questions, it scores your answers in real time, and it includes the "Quote From The CDL Manual" and "Advice from TruckingTruth" after each question which you're familiar with if you took our High Road Training Program.

This app will be released soon on the Google Play store for $2.99 but right now I'm just looking for a few people to test it out and give me a little feedback.

An iPhone and iPad version will be released within a week or two.

So anyone with an Android device of any sort, phone or tablet, that's interested in testing it out and giving me a little feedback, just reply to this message and I'll send you a private message with a link to download the app for free.

Now I'll say this - the app is very simple and it was kept that way on purpose. I didn't want a pile of complex features and a dozen menus and all that garbage. I wanted a quick and simple way for people to get some studying time in when they're on the go but have a few moments to spare.

You pick a category and it gives you a group of 5 randomly selected questions from that category. It shuffles the questions and the 4 multiple choice answers each time so there's no way to memorize the order of anything. And that's about it.

So if you'd like to give it a try you can have it for free. I'll probably be happy with somewhere around 10 people or so testing it out so don't hesitate if you're interested - let me know!

Thanks! smile.gif

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.

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.
