the cdl practice tests on this website i have been getting 95% of the questions correct. some questions seem ridiculous does DOT really ask questions like this? my question is if i ace these questions can i ace the dmv written test

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.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

Yes the dot really asks questions that you think are too easy to miss lol. And sometimes they give you the same question twice or just slightly reworded but the same answer none the less.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Enrico, I was going to make a thread on this but I just never did it and I am sure it has been done before. Anyway I "studied" the CDL training program here on this site, only. I went through it once. With all the repeditive questions that Brett has put in there, ugg what a pain, by the time you get through it you can answer some of them before you even read them. I tryed to memorize what they told me too. And found some of the stuff just down right interesting. I took three days just reading it all. I should clarify, when I say all I mean the basic ones. You know just enough to pass the first test. It took three days just because I felt like my brain was going to explode after a while :) After that I went down to DMV and tested. I live in SC so there is now such thing as a 100%. There are two 20 question tests and one 50 question test. As soon as you get enough right the test stops. And yes they ask the stupidist questions. Most of the silly ones you see on the study material will be on the test. Or at least were on mine. I flew through the test so fast. It was simple only because the material here is so outstanding. Side note just incase you didnt see this before, I did but diddnt pay any attention to it. They made me go get my physical before they would let me test. $109.00 at the walk-in clinic.

I felt so confident after my test I went ahead and studied for the HAZMAT endorsment. About 4 or 5 hours of going through that and I went to test again. I got a P (Pass) for that also. The study material here should relieve any stress you have about the test. If you go through it, click on all the ? marks, pay attention, watch out for the "except" questions, pay close attention to the "except" in questions, oh and watch out for that stupid "except" you will pass with flying colors. I am going back to do the Wieghts and Balance one. This is not on the test but would be a benifit for me to read.

From what I have read here if you go to a paid school you will spend the first week studying for your permit test. What a waste of time in my mind. Study the stuff here and you can walk in with your permit. Maybe they will let you get in the truck sooner. Dont know if thats true but...

Good luck and let us know how things work out.

Enrico, we have the High Road Training Program and the High Road Practice Questions. The training program is a complete test preparation program which has the CDL manual built right in and questions at the end of each page. It also keeps track of your score and progress as you work through the program and feeds you review questions from previous pages as you go along.

Once you've completed the program you can practice if you like using the High Road Practice Questions. They're the exact same question from the training program but that's all it is - the questions. The CDL manual isn't built in, it doesn't track your score from quiz to quiz, and it doesn't give you any review questions.

So if you're learning the materials for the first time, go through the High Road Training Program. Then if you want extra practice, use the High Road Practice Questions.
