I've been a commercial driver for just over ten years now and I'm 'refreshing' my training to transfer to a new Company. First I want to thank you for all the work you've done, love the pictures indicating the locations, etc. I was wondering though, there is no mention of the tire valve stems and caps, not leaking, rubbing, caps on, etc. Isn't that still a requirement in the pre-trip anymore?

I have my class B (school bus driver) in WA state and was wondering the same about:

tire valve stems and caps as well since we were required to include them??

Also: Leaf springs: we were required to include not: - Missing more than 1/4 - shifted - loose or - broken

Brake lining: in addition to what you've listed, must have at least 1/4" of material

Excellent flash cards here. I particularly like the PMS, CBB, ABC approach!

My friend and I are looking at team driving and right now, Prime is at the top of our list!

OOS:

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.

Yep, every state is slightly different. If you'll be going to Prime be sure to memorize this thread as this will be EXACTLY what you'll be tested on.

If you don't already have your CDL then you'll be tested out in MO so you'll need to learn the MO version of the inspection (this thread).

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.

OOS:

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.

I just turned this into a hard copy for study. I managed to get it down to 22 double sided pages. Sheesh.

Now can you imagine taking all that information and creating it all unto a thread! Haha, the struggle was real.

I think formatting all the pictures and getting good ones was the biggest piece. A labor of love!
