BASIC SKILLS EVAL 1 WEEK
This course is focused towards the more experienced truck driver. Vehicle review takes you through the pre-tip inspection, air brakes and backing maneuvers. Students also brush up on double-clutching, approaching intersections, and maneuvering through turns.
All of this review is conducted in preparation of the student’s CDL skills evaluation where the truck driver must demonstrate one’s knowledge of the truck’s condition through a pre-trip inspection and complete a set of driving skills administered by a certified CDL examiner. An optional DMV CDL Road Skills Exam is also available in place of the Skills Evaluation.
