CDL Applicants:

Based on feedback we have received from the motor carrier industry regarding the new federal CDL test model, we have learned that drivers are facing difficulties with certain sections of the test, often times resulting in failures. In an effort to address some of the common difficulties encountered during the skills test, we are providing some information that may be useful for drivers and instructors.

Sections 11-13 of the CDL Manual covers the skills test. Please pay special attention to the Air Brake Check information on page 11-4. We strongly recommend that drivers and instructors focus on the steps outlined for the air brake check, and follow the steps as written. More information is provided in the full CDL Manual (CDL-10).

In addition, please note that the federal regulations allow the pre-trip inspection section to be randomized each time a new test is initiated for an applicant. As a result, the pre-trip portion of the test could start at the front of the vehicle, in the middle, or if the test is for a Class A vehicle, with the trailer. On page 11-12 of the manual, you will find the CDL Vehicle Inspection Memory Aid, which drivers are permitted to bring to the test as long as there are no notes or marked items on the document. Motor Vehicle License Examiners will also have a copy to provide to the applicant at the test site, if necessary.
