    Thanks again. Sorry for all the questions but do you know what the turn around time to submit a new application for a CDL is? I know permits have so much days that they’re valid for. I was going through forums and apparently some states if you fail the first 3 attempts you have to wait an entire year just to reattempt it again?

    This is the video from my CDL school for the the pre-trip and in-cab brake test in Texas. If you memorize everything in the video, you’ll pass the pre-trip and in-cab tests, because that’s exactly what I did and passed the first time.

    It's kinda crappy how they do it but it sounds like he pulled the full truck and told him he was done before doing the in cab. They want you to go straight to in cab after going over the full truck. If you pull just 1 of the sections the examiner will tell you to proceed to in cab but not if pull full card. Ask me how I know lol.

    I pulled full truck, got to the back said I'm done with the outside. She said are you sure your done. That shouldve been my hint but I said yes cause I had just said I was done with the outside. I failed cause of that. My instructor raised some hell got the DPS manager out there and the examiner said I didn't miss anything but it was cause I said I was done. Was a PITA cause i was the most ready for that first test cause the practice was fresh.
