How to Prepare for Your Truck Driving Test

Passing your truck driving test takes a lot of hard work and focus. With help from CDL University’s world-class instructors and streamlined curriculum, you’ll know everything you’ll need to know to pass the test.

Operating a commercial motor vehicle requires a commercial driver’s license from the Department of Public Safety.

The Department of Public Safety defines Class A Vehicles as a combination of vehicles with GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds provided the GVWR of the vehicles being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.

Preparing for the CDL Test

The class A commercial driver’s license test consists of four different tests. All of which test your ability and knowledge of a tractor-trailer, semi-truck. 

However, you must first obtain your commercial learner’s permit. The CLP test is a set of written tests. You can get started on studying for your CLP test by working through this Commercial Learner’s Permit Prep Course.

Once you receive your CLP, you can start working toward your CDL test. 

The CDL truck driving tests are:

  • Vehicle Inspection Test
  • Combination Vehicles Test
  • Basic Control Skills Test
  • Road Test

In order to earn your Class A CDL, you must pass each test.

Once you earn your CDL, you can seize the ample opportunities the transportation industry offers. Check out these hiring trucking companies! You can also take a step further in your career and get CDL endorsements. 

Do I need CDL training to pass my truck driving test?

Everyone who has passed their CDL test has had ample time behind the wheel of a semi-truck. You simply cannot learn how to drive a truck without driving a truck.

That is why attending a CDL school is important to your success in obtaining your CDL and becoming a truck driver. CDL University maximizes your time behind the wheel. In fact, CDL University’s 4-week, class A CDL training equates to 6-months’ experience.
