Remember back when you were in school and you could just wing it? You would just walk into exam day and take the test without any stress whatsoever. Your grade would come back and you would either fail or pass, but you didn’t really concern yourself with the score. Now, though, things have changed. You have a job to worry about, so you want to make sure that you pass when you take a test. You can accomplish that by reading the AL CDL handbook before your exam. The test questions are based on the information inside of this manual. If you study the handbook before the exam, you’ll be sure to ace the test.

Going Through the Handbook

The manual provides not only foundational knowledge on safe driving and cargo transportation but also detailed study material for various CDL endorsement exams. You’ll find sections dedicated to air brakes, combination vehicles, doubles/triples, hazmat, passenger, school bus, tankers, among others, equipping you with the necessary knowledge to excel in your endorsement exams. It’s so easy for your mind to wander when you scroll through the handbook. You might think about what you want to do later in the evening or a funny movie you watched the evening before. That is perfectly normal. Don’t let your wandering mind get the best of you, though. Take out a pen and paper and take notes as you read the manual. That is the best way to remember everything that you read. Then, you can go back through the notes later when you need to study for your AL exam. You can find out if you need to put a little extra time into studying for your test. You might need to spend a few more minutes on a certain topic before you go to the DMV to take your test.

Are You Ready?

When you think you are ready to take the test, that means you need to go through the handbook one more time. It is always good to be overly prepared. That way, your nerves won’t get the best of you when you take the test. After you go through it the additional time, head over to the DMV and take your test. This online CDL handbook has all of the answers you need for your CDL test. Read through it and then head directly to the DMV.
