FREE WV CDL General Knowledge Exam Simulator 2019

Want to get a Commercial Driver’s license in West Virginia? Don’t make the process take longer because of a technicality. After all, you want to start earning right away. But before they will allow you to operate a commercial vehicle, you need to pass a relatively tricky General Knowledge exam. The test is 50 multiple-choice questions covering everything from escape ramps to trailer speeds, which you have to answer within 60 minutes. Get more than 10 wrong and you’ll fail the exam and have to come back to the DMV another day, which doesn’t sound very fun. Make sure you are ready to pass on the first try by studying the official West Virginia Commercial Driver’s Manual. This is filled with the types of rules and tricks that will become questions on the exam. Then we suggest taking some of our free practice tests. These will show you exactly how the facts you read about become questions. Our CDL General Knowledge practice tests have question wordings that are similar if not identical to the real thing. After becoming comfortable passing these tests, you should have no problem acing the real exam on the first go. However, the test is not the only hurdle to jump over when you are hoping to get your CDL. You also need to make sure you have the specific documentation they need. First you’ll want to get an Medical Examiner’s Certificate which will prove that you are physically qualified to drive a commercial vehicle. These certificates can be obtained from any licensed medical examiners that are listed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry. After that you’ll also need a valid current driver’s license and proof of citizenship or permanent legal residency statue. For this last piece you’ll want something like a green card, birth certificate, or social security card. With those three things in tow, plus all the knowledge you gained from your studies, you will be ready to get in and out of the West Virginia DMV with your Commercial Driver’s License in tow.
