Quick question. On the in cab break check, are you no longer required to do a "static check" of the system? When I took the test after you released the parking brakes, you had to first do a static check of the air which couldn't lose more than (I want to say) 2 lbs in a minute. I'll be going to a CDL refresher course in Lakeland FL starting June 16th and will have to do this test correctly in order to pass. I'll most likely be starting with Prime after completion of the course.

He did the leakage test you're asking about. We were taught no more than 3 psi/minute for a single vehicle, no more than 4 psi/minute for a combination unit.

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 want to bump this thread for people to see and read it. Remember, you can't get your license without knowing the Pre-Trip Inspection!

Pre-trip Inspection:

A pre-trip inspection is a thorough inspection of the truck completed before driving for the first time each day.

Federal and state laws require that drivers inspect their vehicles. Federal and state inspectors also may inspect your vehicles. If they judge a vehicle to be unsafe, they will put it “out of service” until it is repaired.

Like I always say, this site is a whole lot better than when I was using it before starting school. These spoiled folks don't know how we had it in the old days!
