    texas cdl special requirements test

    IN TEXAS



    so ive been studying section 14 of the texas cdl handbook entitled special requirements. the lady at the dmv said my permit test was over section 14 only and once i pass that i will get my permit. the section is very hard and i would like to take practice test over this but i cant seem to find a site that offers practice exams on this. does anyone know of a site that has these test? its not general knowledge or air brakes. this is way different. any help would be appreciated

    That is basically the test specific to Texas for operating (mostly)commercial vehicles on public roads. Has to be passed before any other tests can be taken.

    I don't know of any free online practice questions and answers for it. Can go through that section and highlight what might look like could turn up on a test. (yeah I know,WAG)

    Know: max day and night speeds...and on what type roads
    Equip on slow moving vehicles
    Unlawful equip
    Required lighting on type and size of trailer/vehicle
    Placement of reflectors if parked/diabled on roadside
    Where to get permits for OD
    Max lengths---no triples in Texas
    Load limits
    Vehicle towing
    Coasting--following--railroads
    Registration of vehicles

    Look at the few questions at the back of the section and the appendix on speed limits. Read through it a few times and won't be that hard.

    On a side note. Texas has done away with the split Day/night speed limits. There are no more night time reduced speed limits.

    Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately for some. In Texas all tests, except for driving are on computer, even pre-trip. But if you don't pass, the beauty part or sad part is, they give you the correct answer when you get it wrong. So all you have to do is wait the day to take it over, and they ask the same questions just different order. Scary isn't it, or the greatest thing ever, depending on your perspective.

    The one question that threw me was about lightiung on a farm tractor. Yes it is on this test. Another thing is van height in texas can be 14' not the typical 13' 6".

    The general knowledge test isn't that hard. Try the CDL practice test at the top of the page, this will help. I did the Hazmat practice test about 6 time before taking the DPS test, made a 93!
