CDL Final Exam

CDL Final Exam: The CDL Skill Test Explained After obtaining your commercial learner’s permit, and you graduated from TruckTrailerPro CDL School we will schedule the CDL Skill Test at TruckTrailerPro CDL Test Site. This test is divided into three parts: Pre-trip Inspection, Basic Vehicle Controls Test, and On-Road Driving Test. The school provides a test vehicle for your use.

The CDL Skill Test requires you to take the test in the same class and type of motor vehicle you intend to drive once you have your CDL. If the vehicle you use for the test lacks air brakes, you’ll have an air brakes restriction on your CDL.

  • Pre-trip Inspection: This part assesses your knowledge of the vehicle class you plan to drive and ensures your commercial vehicle’s safety for public roads. Failing this inspection means you can’t proceed to the Basic Control Test. You can request the sheet below from your examiner to have it at the exam to guide you.

You can check the video that we prepared for you to understand it better.
