Sometimes I will choose the correct answer on a question, and it tells me I am wrong, but when I read the excerpt from the handbook, it turns out I was correct. I have to purposely choose the wrong answer to keep my score up. I got halted so I had to start over so I could press on.

Anybody else have problems?

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 never had this issue. Are you sure you're reading the question right? Some questions are worded somewhat trickily, just like the written exam questions. What question and answer is it, specifically?

A couple of them actually. Here is one

Bold answer is correct and what is correct. Italicized is what it says is correct bit is in fact wrong.

"As tires get hot, air pressure rises, increasing the likelihood of a tire blowout. When encountering a hot tire, you should never do the following:

Wait for the tire to cool down All of these can be done to reduce the risk of a tire blowout from overheating Pour cold water on the tire Let air out of the tire until the pressure returns to normal"

Quote From The CDL Manual:

Check the tire mounting and air pressure. Inspect the tires every two hours or every 100 miles when driving in very hot weather. Air pressure increases with temperature. Do not let air out or the pressure will be too low when the tires cool off. If a tire is too hot to touch, remain stopped until the tire cools off. Otherwise the tire may blow out or catch fire. A burning tire should be cooled with water. TruckingTruth's Advice:

Be extra vigilant about your tires while driving through deserts or in very hot weather. Tires can get extremely hot resulting in blowouts or tire fires. Tire debris on the roadway becomes much more common during the hot summer months.

CDL:

  • 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.

Yap! Happens all the time. We purposely made the questions and answers rather tricky for two reasons:

1) The DMV does that on the actual written exams you'll be taking. They try to trip you up with the wording to make sure you know your stuff and you're reading carefully.

2) It forces you to focus hard on every single word of every question and answer. That focus will help you learn more quickly and retain the information better.

Keep at it! High Road Training Program is unbelievably effective. At times it's frustrating because it gives you very little tolerance for errors. That is also by design because we don't want people guessing wrong and therefore reinforcing the wrong answers in their mind. We want people to focus hard on getting each question correct each time so you learn as quickly and efficiently as possible.
