I’m making mid to low 90’s on all my test does that mean I should pass my CLP test ? I have also been taking other test online but not sure what all is on the written test so I’m looking for advice Thank you in advance. ..

CLP:

Commercial Learner's Permit

Before getting their CDL, commercial drivers will receive their commercial learner's permit (CLP) upon passing the written portion of the CDL exam. They will not have to retake the written exam to get their CDL.

When I took my Florida permit test, the questions were almost verbatim what’s on the High Road Training Program practice exams.

I hope this helps.

High Road CDL Training Program

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.

I agree with Steve L. The questions won't differ too much from what you been studying. Just keep studying up to the day you take your test and you should be fine.

The real concern after that is finding the right school to get your license. If I had to do it over again I would have went to a paid training from a company, I recently obtained my CDL A from a private school and not sure that I picked the right one. Make sure they teach you about coupling, the sliding tandems and the pre trip in depth. My school didn't show me the tandems and I had to ask them about the coupling system.

Good luck on the permit test

Tandems:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

Just pick and use 1 or 2 study programs, so you don't get brain overload. My 1st co-driver from school was listening to others at school, all giving him other things to study with. I stayed up a couple nights til 3-4 am trying to help him. He got too much in his head, screwing him up when it came time to test.

Took him until his 4th try, to actually get it, and set him back 2 weeks in school finishing, because of using way too many app's etc. And Yes, I tried to steer him and others HERE, to use TT's valuable tools to no avail lol

Ok thank you I’ve just been studying the general knowledge test/ the combination vehicles & the air brakes on this site and taking test on a couple more to see what is different ? I also been talking to different companies that have the cdl training program to see about the pay/ duration of the contract/what equipment they have as far as trucks go trying to determine who has the best set-up
