General Knowledge CDL Tests

STEP 1: Watch General Knowledge Test 1 Instructional Video

STEP 2: Take General Knowledge Test 1

IMPORTANT: First watch the video for this test (top of this page), then take the following practice test. You should do well on just your first attempt. Repeat watching the video and taking this test until you get 100%. Next, move on to General Knowledge Test #2. Repeat this same routine for the rest of the General Knowledge training modules (2-5) before taking the General Knowledge DMV Simulated Exam, which has the same number of questions and the same time limit as your official state exam, and is different each time you take the exam.

This CDL General Knowledge test will prepare you to pass EVERY state’s DMV General Knowledge exam. To get a CDL and drive any type of commercial vehicle, you must take and pass the General Knowledge test. You’ll be tested on general trucking knowledge, driving safely and transporting cargo safely, taken from sections 1, 2, and 3 of your state CDL manual. On the official DMV written exam, you must get at least 80% to pass.
