You must take this test if your vehicle, or a vehicle you are required to drive for your job, has air brakes. For the exam, you must know the parts of a single and dual air brake system as well as how to inspect and use them. This test can be taken by Class A, B, and C license holders.

Double/Triple Trailers Test

The doubles/triples endorsement is a more specific combination vehicles test for those who will be driving double and triple trailers. To pass the exam, you’ll need to study coupling and uncoupling, how to inspect the trailers, and how to check each trailer’s air brakes.

Pre-Trip Inspection Test

This pre-trip inspection practice test will prepare you for the internal and external portions of the vehicle inspection exam, where you will be expected to be able to walk around your vehicle, touch items, and explain to an examiner why items must be inspected before a trip.

 

What's a Commercial Driver's License?

CDL License

A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is a driver’s license that authorizes a person to operate a class of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). Federal standards define three classes of CDLs, each for a corresponding group of motor vehicles:

  • Class A (Combination Vehicles): Any combination of vehicles with a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of at least 26,001 pounds provided the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle(s) being towed exceeds 10,000 pounds. Examples include tractor-trailers.

  • Class B (Heavy Straight Vehicles): Any single vehicle with a GVWR of at least 26,001 pounds, or any such vehicle towing another vehicle whose GVWR does not exceed 10,000 pounds. Examples include coach buses and transit buses.

  • Class C (Small Vehicles): Any single vehicle or combination of vehicles not included in Class A or Class B that is used to transport sixteen or more passengers including the driver or to transport hazardous materials. (For this purpose, federal regulations define a hazardous material as a substance that has been designated by the US Secretary of Transportation as a material whose commercial transportation may pose an unreasonable risk to health and safety or property.) Examples include sixteen-passenger vans

Some US states also require CDLs for other purposes or other types of vehicles. Like other types of driver’s licenses, CDLs are usually issued by a state government’s DMV. In other respects, a CDL functions like an ordinary driver’s license. It can be used as a valid form of identification. The holder of a CDL may legally drive a passenger car or obtain a motorcycle endorsement on the CDL.
