Want to test your CDL knowledge? Here are some questions from a general knowledge practice test. Don’t scroll down too fast!

  1. What is the most important reason for doing a pre trip inspection?
  2. How many red reflective triangles that you should carry?
  3. When stopped on a hill, what is the proper procedure to start moving without rolling back?
  4. The CDL manual says you should look how far ahead while driving?
  5. If you double your speed, by how many times will your stopping distance need to increase?

Do you think you’ve got the answers? The practice test guide answers are below.


  1. Safety for yourself and other road users
  2. Three
  3. Partly engage the clutch before you take your right foot off the brake
  4. 12 to 15 seconds, at highway speeds it’s about a quarter of a mile
  5. Four times
