Our FREE CDL Practice Tests have been helping future truckers get their CDL – AND get started down the road to a great trucking career – since ’04. Choose from one of the main CDL test areas below to get started practicing right away!
How to Use Our 3 CDL Test Modes
1. Classic Mode (500 questions):
These are the same CDL practice tests we’ve had here at Trucker Country for the past 10 years! Each CDL test has questions on the same page with a multiple choice format. You can retake all tests as often as needed.
2. Practice Mode (500 questions):
With this mode, you get instant results and CDL references along with correct answers after every question.
We point you to the exact location in the official state CDL manual so you can immediately see for yourself where the question came from and reread that section if necessary. This further cements that information in your head. ALSO, you will have complete assurance that each test is accurate because it’s RIGHT THERE in your official state manual and THAT’S what you’re tested on!
In Practice Mode, take our practice tests in conjunction with your CDL manual to best learn each section. (learning tip: It may be useful to open one window or tab for the CDL manual and one for our practice tests)
3. Exam Mode (500 questions):
Each CDL test is timed and you get your grade and results only after you’ve finished each test. Much like the official state CDL written exams!
What Makes Our CDL Practice Tests Stand Apart From the Rest?
Yes, these tests are FREE, but there are many sites out there with free practice tests. The quality of the tests is what matters most! These tests must be accurate, challenging, and up to date with the latest Federal Guidelines found in your state CDL manual. We make sure that they are. Take some practice tests and try us. If you believe you find an error, or something that’s confusing, email us and we will get right back to you. But these tests have been taken millions of times and you can rest assured that they are correct!
Do the Official CDL Exams Vary From State To State?
Nope. Regardless of what state you live in, each and every state’s written CDL exam is based on Federal Guidelines taken from the same information. Think about it, do you really believe that the way you drive a big truck changes from one state to the next? Is there a different braking technique on a mountain in Colorado than there is in Alaska? Are Hazmat placards placed in a different location on your trailer depending on what state you’re in? Not so much.
Practicing with our CDL tests will prepare you to pass EVERY CDL written exam, in ALL states!
That being said, it’s essential that you read your state CDL manual – download here. The manuals have information specific to your state, such as fees, testing locations, phone numbers for your local testing centers, and their hours of testing and service. They may also offer CDL study guides that could further prepare you for the CDL permit exam.
Note: Each of our tests are similar, but not necessarily the exact same as the official state written exam you’ll have to take and pass to get your commercial drivers license (CDL). The official state exams change often to prevent passing along of the answers. But by practicing with our tests in conjunction with studying the corresponding sections of your state CDL Manual, you’ll be on your way to passing the written exams and getting your CDL.
