You need to read and study this book if you intend to take the CDL. The authors carefully prepare you for the test you must pass in order to receive your Commercial Driver's License. Administered by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the CDL test is required in all 50 states and U.S. territories. This manual gives you detailed coverage of both the written test and the behind-the-wheel test and provides specific answers to all questions, as well as explanations for all situations. Easy-to-follow diagrams and illustrations demonstrate the skills you must master so that you'll be prepared to do well when you take your behind-the-wheel test.
