Emmet DumasEmmet Dumas ★★★★★ Great place to get hands on truck driving experience.Tommy swedaTommy sweda ★★★★★ Great place to get hands on truck driving experienceTim MooreTim Moore ★★★★★ When I started TDI I was pretty nervous. But our instructor did an awesome job teaching us. By the time we were done with all the driving and learning we were very able and capable of passing our driving exam! Lisa and Brian and Mark our instructors are very cool! I have to admit I was a little nervous about driving on my final exam! But Brian is very skilled and immediately put me at ease. He is very good and very clear on what you are to do and how to do it. And he is very patient! I am glad that I had the experience that I had at TDI. Since my graduation I have a class A CDL, I have also taken the tankers test the doubles and triples test the Hazmat test and I passed them all and have those endorsements. I have also apply for and I'm waiting on to get it back my TWIC card. After much job searching and deciding on what I wanted to do and which way to go. Because there were many options and many companys wanted me to come to work with them. I chose Swift Transportation. I am going to orientation on Monday for my 2-day orientation. And then I will be placed with my mentor for the next month. I'm very excited about the future! And all this began at TDI! Thanks again guys for everything thank you Lisa and Brian and Mark!Fathi EssaFathi Essa ★★★★★ Vary easy good schoolJackie TreadeauJackie Treadeau ★★★★★ Attended Midwest Truck Driving School to upgrade my Class B CDL to an A.

I was very prepared for my written tests.Clevon JenningsClevon Jennings ★★★★★ Extremely detailed easy to understand guaranteed to passBob PaulBob Paul ★★★★★ I was looking for online training for HazMat, and found Midwest Truck Driving School, I liked what I saw, so I looked them up on the FMCSA registered OLDT providers list, and sure enough they were there. I purchased the Hazmat training, watched the video, and took and passed the test. Unfortunately when I went to my local DMV here in Washington State, they said they don't accept online Hazmat training. And that I had to take a 16 hour class for HazMat. The 16 hour classes provided here in Washington are $300 to $450. So I called MTDS to ask for a refund. At that time Ian (I believe) informed me that his boss had already called me, and issued me a refund earlier that day. So I checked my voicemail and sure enough he had called. I checked my PayPal, and sure enough there was my money refunded! Ian had informed me that Washington is the only state out of all 49 states that doesn't accept online Hazmat training. Washington is stupid!I thought the training from MTDS was very good, and I do recomend them to anyone who's state WILL accept the online training!I wondered, when researching MTDS, how they achieved 317-5 star Google reviews.Now i know how. Good training material, and great customer service!Thanks guys!I appreciate you.Response from the ownerBob, thank you for the five star review! Unfortunately, as you stated, Washington is the ONLY state that won't except online HazMat Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT). We wish we could change that, however, our hands are tied! Nonetheless, we are happy that we could still give you a good experience and earn this review from you. If there is anything else you may ever need, let us know, we are happy to help!

The Significance of Studying the Pre-Trip Inspection for the CDL Exam

Obtaining a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is a significant milestone for individuals aspiring to enter the world of professional trucking. One crucial aspect of the CDL examination process that often receives less attention than it deserves is the Pre-Trip Inspection. This examination segment holds immense importance, as it not only contributes to the overall success of the CDL test but also plays a pivotal role in ensuring road safety and vehicle maintenance in the long run. In this article, we will delve into the reasons why studying the Pre-Trip Inspection for the CDL exam is so vital.

  1. Regulatory Compliance

The Pre-Trip Inspection is more than just a test; it is a demonstration of one’s ability to adhere to federal and state regulations governing commercial vehicles. Mastering this inspection ensures that you are aware of the legal requirements for the safe operation of commercial vehicles. Failing to comply with these regulations not only jeopardizes your CDL but can also result in penalties for the employer and a potential risk to public safety.

  1. Vehicle Safety

The Pre-Trip Inspection is a structured process to identify and report potential vehicle defects or issues. By studying and mastering this inspection, you become a critical part of ensuring that the truck you operate is in optimal working condition. This helps prevent accidents, breakdowns, and costly repairs, not to mention the safety of everyone on the road.

  1. Job Readiness

Employers value CDL holders who are proficient in the Pre-Trip Inspection. Demonstrating your knowledge in this area during the hiring process can make you a more attractive candidate. Employers seek drivers who are diligent in maintaining their vehicles, as it minimizes downtime and enhances the company’s reputation.

  1. Confidence on the Road

When you’re well-versed in the Pre-Trip Inspection, you approach your driving responsibilities with a higher level of confidence. Knowing that your vehicle is thoroughly checked and maintained gives you peace of mind as you navigate highways and handle various transportation tasks.

  1. Personal Responsibility

The Pre-Trip Inspection instills a sense of responsibility in CDL holders. By recognizing and addressing issues before they become significant problems, you take ownership of your role in maintaining road safety. This sense of responsibility extends beyond the CDL exam and becomes an integral part of your professional conduct.

  1. Cost Savings

Preventive maintenance, as initiated through the Pre-Trip Inspection, can save you and your employer substantial costs in the long run. Early detection of mechanical issues means that minor repairs can be made before they escalate into costly breakdowns. Moreover, it helps to maintain your truck’s value and longevity.

In conclusion, the Pre-Trip Inspection is not just a mandatory hurdle to clear for obtaining a CDL. It is a fundamental aspect of safe and responsible commercial driving. Studying and mastering this inspection is a gateway to regulatory compliance, vehicle safety, job readiness, enhanced confidence, personal responsibility, and long-term cost savings. Investing the time and effort to understand and excel in the Pre-Trip Inspection is an investment in your future as a skilled and responsible CDL holder.
