You may think that Hawaii isn’t the best place to pursue a commercial driving career, but you’d be wrong. People on the islands rely just as much, or maybe even more, on deliveries than their brothers on the mainland, and nothing could be delivered without male and female truck drivers. The trucking industry shows projected growth for the next several years, and that includes in Hawaii. The first step to making a career on the road is opening the pages of the 2024 Hawaii CDL Manual, and getting ready to pass your CDL exam.

How to Prepare

Your success in the written exam hinges on how well you study this manual -- it’s your key to passing. With careful, thorough study and diligent note-taking, achieving the required 80% passing score for your CDL learner’s permit or license should be within reach. Remember, your study efforts are not just for exam success; they are crucial for ensuring your safety, the safety of your cargo, and that of others on the road. The Hawaii CDL Manual is a treasure trove of information, covering everything from basic truck driving and maintenance to navigating unique weather conditions, like Hawaii’s frequent rain showers. It also includes vital details for obtaining CDL endorsements, such as passenger transport, school bus, tanker, HazMat, and air brakes. Given the manual’s extensive content, it’s perfectly normal for your mind to wander during study sessions. Use these moments as cues to take a break. Return to your studies refreshed and ready to absorb more knowledge with renewed focus and dedication.

Final Steps

Right before it’s time to go to the Hawaii Commercial Driver Licensing Center, review the manual and your notes one more time. This will help you to relieve any nervousness and give your confidence a boost for the exam. Good luck!
