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.

Go back thru the High Road Online Training course and pay more attention to the areas you were deficient in. Go thru it a couple times if need be.

Something that happens is People read the question too quickly. Slow down and think. It is very easy to misread it.

Exactly this! The ones I missed (in both MT and NC) were reading comprehension issues, over not knowing the material. Use the high road here, and test again.

I remember a good story about a teacher who gave his class a test paper to complete. Before the first question there was an instruction to read the entire test before beginning. At the very end was another instruction: DO NOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS LISTED ABOVE.
