Check Answer

  • b. amber
  • c. red

Explanation: Conduct a walk-around inspection of your vehicle during step five of the Seven-step Inspection Method. When you check the rear of the vehicle, check the lights and reflectors. Make sure the rear clearance and identification lights, reflectors, taillights, and right rear turn signal are clean, operating, and the proper color. Rear clearance and identification lights, reflectors, and taillights should be red at rear. The right rear turn signal should be red, yellow, or amber. Make sure that the license plate(s) are present, clean, and secured. Be sure the splash guards are present, undamaged, properly fastened, and not dragging on the ground or rubbing tires. Make sure the cargo is properly blocked, braced, tied or chained, that tailboards are up and properly secured, and that the end gates are free of damage and properly secured in the stake sockets. Secure the canvas or tarp to prevent tearing or billowing that might block the rearview mirrors or cover the rear lights. If over-length or under-width, make sure all signs and/or additional lights/flags are safely and properly mounted and that all required permits are in the driver's possession.

Check Answer
  • a. that door latches or locks work properly.
  • b. the condition of the front axle.
  • c. the lights and reflectors.
  • d. all of the above

Explanation: Conduct a walk-around inspection of your vehicle during step five of the Seven-step Inspection Method. When you check the left front side of the vehicle, make sure the driver's door glass is clean. Make sure that door latches or locks work properly. On the left front wheel, check the wheel and rim for missing, bent, or broken studs, clamps, lugs, or any signs of misalignment. Check the tires to ensure that they are properly inflated, that the valve stem and cap are OK, and that there are no serious cuts, bulges, or tread wear. Use a wrench to test rust-streaked lug nuts for looseness. Make sure that the hub oil level is OK and that there are no leaks. Check the left front suspension next. Look at the condition of the spring, spring hangers, shackles, u-bolts, and shock absorber. On the left front brake, check the condition of the brake drum or disc and hoses.

If something is blocking your path and you are blocked on both sides, __________

Check Answer
  • a. steer right.
  • b. brake hard and hold the wheel straight.
  • c. brake lightly and hold the wheel straight.
  • d. steer left.

Explanation: Stopping is not always the safest thing to do in an emergency. When you don't have enough room to stop, you may have to steer away from what's ahead. Remember, you can almost always turn to miss an obstacle more quickly than you can stop. If an oncoming driver has drifted into your lane, a move to your right is best. If that driver realizes what has happened, the natural response will be to return to his or her own lane. If something is blocking your path, the best direction to steer will depend on the situation. If you have been using your mirrors, you'll know which lane is empty and can be safely used. If the shoulder is clear, going right may be best. No one is likely to be driving on the shoulder but someone may be passing you on the left. You will know if you have been using your mirrors. If you are blocked on both sides, a move to the right may be best. At least you won't force anyone into an opposing traffic lane and a possible head-on collision.

Required Endorsements for CDL - Class A Driver's License

The class of the Commercial Drivers License, A, B or C refers to the weight of the vehicle. When a person gets a CDL, they take the General Knowledge test (required for any CDL) and the tests for any endorsements they want or need for that license class. The driver will take the actual driving test in the vehicle that falls into the weight class for the vehicle they will be driving.

The federal standard requires states to issue a CDL to drivers according to license classifications. Here are the Class designations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration:

  • Class A License - Any combination of vehicles with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds provided the GVWR of the vehicle(s) being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Class B License - Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing a vehicle not in excess of 10,000 pounds GVWR.
  • Class C License - Any single vehicle, or combination of vehicles, that does not meet the definition of Class A or Class B, but is either designed to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver, or is placarded for hazardous materials.

For a CDL Class A drivers license, you will need to successfully pass the following exams:
