CDL Pre-Trip Inspection [Straight Truck]. The purpose of this inspection is to make sure the vehicle is safe to operate, and to see if you have the. The Pre Trip Inspection Test is one of the more difficult parts of the CDL exam due to the amount of memorization involved and the extreme importance of knowing each and every part and each safety point implicitly. However, it is absolutely necessary in order to ensure the safety of the driver and the other passengers on the road.
To drive a commercial vehicle with air brakes, you must get the Air Brakes endorsement on your CDL. This exam is based on Air Brakes section 6 of the CDL manual, covering The Parts of an Air Brake System, Dual Air Brake, and Inspecting/Using Air Brakes.
Hazardous Materials Test – CDL Hazardous Materials Practice Test, Before being able to operate ANY vehicle that is used to transport any material which requires a Hazardous Material placard or any quantity of a material which is listed as a Select Agent or Toxin in 42 CFR 93, you must possess a CDL with a Hazardous Materials Endorsement. This testing (Hazardous Materials Endorsement) ensures that a driver is fully trained and qualified to deal with potentially dangerous spills and situations. This protects the driver, the company the driver works for, and the public, in general, should a potentially dangerous situation arise.
The Transporting Passengers Endorsement is required for drivers who will be operating vehicles such as buses, taxis, service buses (handicap buses, factory buses, church buses, etc.), limousines, airport shuttles and the like. In order to obtain a passenger endorsement, it is necessary to pass the CDL General Knowledge Test and the CDL Passenger Test. In the event the vehicle has air brakes it will also be necessary to pass the Air Brakes Endorsement Test. All of our practice tests can help you to pass the actual DMV tests in these areas.
