How much do you know about emergency ramps? Or the number of seconds it takes a tractor trailer to clear a set of train tracks? If the answer is you aren’t very sure, you’ll need to get to studying the official Nevada Commercial Driver’s manual if you want to pass the relatively tricky General Knowledge exam. The test is 50 multiple-choice questions with a strict 1 hour time limitation. If you get more than 10 of those questions wrong (or less than an 80%) you fail the test and have to return another day. That means the whole process of waiting at the DMV all over again. If you want to make sure you have the knowledge you need to succeed the first time, we suggest taking our CDL General Knowledge practice tests. Our tests show you the format of the questions and in many cases the exact concepts that the exam at the DMV will cover. And with hints and score tracking, our practice tests are designed to make sure you have everything down pat before you go. However, knowledge is not the only thing you need to bring to the Nevada DMV. In addition, you’ll need some paperwork, before they even show you the test. First they will expect to see proof that you are physically qualified to drive a commercial vehicle. This comes in the form of a Medical Examiner’s Certificate (also known as a DOT Card). In order to obtain one you must visit a licensed medical examiner listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry. In addition, you need a valid current driver’s license as well as a proof of residency or citizenship like a birth certificate or social security card. With all that together, and what you learned taking the practice exams you’ll be confident to get your CDL the first time out.
