Where can I take a CDL practice test online?

Operating a commercial motor vehicle takes a great deal of skill, which is why the test for earning your CDL covers so much information. Depending upon the exact endorsements he or she requires, a commercial driver needs to know about topics such as air brakes, driving combination vehicles, driving tank vehicles, transporting cargo, transporting passengers, hauling hazardous materials, and driving a school bus. The best way to prepare to earn your CDL is to take several practice tests before you visit your DMV for the actual written exam.

The first place to look for a CDL practice test is your state's DMV Web site. Most states have a copy of the CDL driver manual available as a PDF download. The PDF file typically includes practice questions at the end of each section. However, your state DMV may also have a separate interactive online practice test that you can take to see if you're prepared to earn your license.

Since the basic rules of safe driving are the same regardless of where you live, it can be helpful to look at the CDL tests on other state DMV Web sites. If you live in Mississippi, the information on the CDL practice tests for Iowa, Wisconsin, California, or Tennessee will still be useful. Remember that practice tests aren't intended to directly duplicate the questions on the actual exam; the goal is to simply make you more comfortable with the test format and the types of information that will be covered.

If you've paid to attend a school for commercial drivers, your program may offer access to special online CDL practice tests. There are also several private party Web sites that offer practice tests for CDL drivers for a small fee.
