What must I check during pre trip inspection for my FL CDL test? Texas

CDL Inspection Checklist

As part of your pre trip inspection, you should check the:

  • Engine compartment
  • Parking brakes
  • Gauges
  • Condition of the various controls
  • Mirrors
  • Windshields
  • Emergency equipment
  • Signal lights
  • Headlights
  • Hydraulic system
  • Brakes
This isn't meant to be a complete list; refer to your CDL driver manual for more detailed information about exactly what you'll need to know to pass your Florida driving test or road test, including the pre-trip portion.

CDL Practice Test

No matter which CDL class you're seeking, you're going to face some sort of a written test in order to gain your commercial license.

So, what's the best way to prepare? It's always a must to thoroughly study the FL CDL driver's manual; but, in addition to that, consider taking a few CDL practice tests. Doing so enhances your chances of passing the official CDL test on your first attempt.


You'll need to set an appointment for your pre trip inspection and other road tests. Just visit the OASIS page on the DHSMV site to do so; it's an easy process if you follow the instructions provided. It's recommended you also make an appointment for your written CDL test, but this is optional.
