Very skilled instructors, school works with you on any skill level and will guide you through everything.
The school was very helpful with teaching things that I didn't know, all the instructors are very friendly and funny.
I’m here for the CDL B class and it’s great the instructor Paul (aka Frenchy) is great and very to the point. Highly recommended
Great school to get your CDL. Frenchy took his time to make sure to answer any questions and took his time teaching what is needed for the pre trip and road test.
Frenchy is an excellent instructor. Very knowledgeable about the trucks and maneuvers. I would recommend this school to anyone that is interested in becoming a commercial driver. The way they care about how you are learning and if you need help they will go out of the way to help in what ever way they possibly can. 5 stars is not enough to leave a review for these guys!
Totally recommended!!! Serious people running the business like professionals. I needed to find a place to do the ELDT Hazardous Materials Training. Amazing training, finished around 2am. When I got to the FL DMV that same day they already had the certificate. Thank you so much for helping me to get my HAZMAT endorsement easy and fast! Scored 100% at the DMV!!
I’m 55 and going back to school for anything was a nightmare.How ever from entering the front doors the office/ Kat…made things I didn’t know how to do much easier then I thought.All of the Instructors had answers to every question I had. I’ve always been a hands on person so taking tests on paper was a huge down fall for me. With all the information and knowledge they have here I past my tests with ease!I still have one more test to take but I’m certain with these instructors behind me I’ll do great!Thank you Midwest truck!

Good course great instructors and easy environment to get the things down that the state tester wants to hear and see during the test.
My experience here at this school was amazing. My instructor Frenchy did such a great job at breaking down the pre trip and teaching me a trick to remember everything that I am supposed to check. He also showed me some really beautiful scenic views while we were out on our drives. I will be recommending this school to anyone that is wanting or thinking about getting their CDL.

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.
