Hi,

I passed my pre-trip test in NJ. Was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to get the yard and road test done in Indianapolis without having to start all over again.

Pre-trip?? you take it separate in Jersey??? Do you mean the CDL permit?

If you really mean the Pre-Trip, in Indiana it's not possible as you take the same say starting with Pre-Trip on the skills test and then road...you have to pass one before moving on the the next one..

Also your CDL permit will not transfer to Indiana, you have to take the tests all over again and before you are able to take the CDL permit tests, have to first pass the operators license test which is 60 questions. Your out of state DL will not automatically transfer, you have to take the written test..

I am glad I'm not going to Indiana for school. I plan on having my permit with all endorsements before I Leave Colorado. (You get to the front of the line faster from what I understand)

In New Jersey, there are 1. pre-trip, 2. yard (alley dock, straight backing and right turn), and 3. road test. If you pass 1, then you go on to 2 then 3. If you pass 1 and fail 2, you dont have to repeat 1 but cannot move on to 3 till you pass 2. If you pass 1 and 2 and fail 3 then you only repeat 3.

And you dont have to necessarily repeat the test in the same town. You can do it in another town.

You have to do the pre trip every time you get near a truck. I think i'm confused...

I think they are referring to the "pre-trip" section of the CDL-A exam . . . there are three parts of the exam, pre-trip being one of the three. The others are the backing skills and road test. So, I think the original question is if one has taken part of the CDL-A exam, can the other parts be taken at a different location (state?) and different time. I would suspect no self-respecting bureaucrat would EVER be that flexible or that accom0dating. It might set a trend where they were actually efficient . . . but I digress . . .

In Indiana they don't treat it as three separate tests. It's one test with 3 parts. Even if you fail the road test, after passing pre-trip and backing, you still have to do it all over again if you retest. So, yes, in Indiana you have to do the whole shebang.
