CDL Digest is committed to bringing you up-to-date commercial driver’s license (CDL) information and resources. CDL Digest understands just how frustrating and time consuming it can be to get your hands on all the information you need, whether you are an individual who is interested in obtaining a CDL license for the first time, a large truck or bus driver with years of experience, or a trucking company manager. As a result, CDL Digest will be continuously updating this site to bring you the most accurate and useful information and resources possible.
Our site offers a wide range of valuable information and resources. If you are a person who needs or is interested in obtaining a CDL, the best place to start on our site is how to get a commercial driver’s license followed by general qualifications and medical requirements. And even though it applies to very few people, we also have information pertaining to criminal offenses that would prohibit a person from obtaining a CDL and/or disqualify a person from obtaining a hazardous materials endorsement We also have valuable information for military veterans and active duty military personnel who are interested in obtaining a CDL.
Our site also includes links to the Commercial Driver’s Licensing (CDL) agency and CDL manual or school bus manual for your state. For those people who need to take the written exams to obtain a CDL, we offer a full complement of individual study guides with practice tests, including general knowledge, air brakes, combination vehicles, hazardous materials endorsement, double/triple trailers endorsement, tank vehicle endorsement, passenger vehicle endorsement, and school bus endorsement. If you need to take several of these written exams, our best valued study guide includes all of the aforementioned study guides in one e-book.
If you need to take the skills test to obtain a CDL, one of the most important aspects of the test other than the actual driving portion of the exam, is the pre-trip inspection. Our site covers every aspect of the pre-trip inspection, including the cab check, engine compartment, external cab, trailer, and air brake check. Our site also covers additional pre-trip inspection information that is specific to tank vehicles, double/triple trailers, and coach/transit bus.
Another area of great importance for those people who already have a CDL and are currently operating a commercial motor vehicle is the hours of service rules, which have recently been updated, and driver’s daily log examples.
We hope you find the information and resources on our site useful and up-to-date. If there is information that is outdated or information that is not currently available on our site that you would like to see included, please feel free to contact us.
