If you are serious about earning your Michigan CDL, you shouldn’t sit for the exam until you have first taken our MI CDL General Knowledge Practice Test Simulator. Featuring 50 multiple choice questions, this second test in our General Knowledge series may be even more challenging than the first. Here are two examples of the types of questions you will need to be able to answer to earn a passing score of 80% or higher on this test: How do you check to make sure trailer height is correct before coupling? How can you test that air flows to all trailers? There are questions covering a variety of topics on the test, such as basic vehicle operation, driving in fog, communicating, seeing, shifting gears and much more.

If you miss a question on this test, it will immediately be added to your Missed Questions Bank, which will allow you to go back over those questions and ensure you’ve improved your knowledge.

The questions on our practice test are based on the concepts and information found in the pages of the Michigan CDL manual, which is also the very same resource test officials use to create questions you’ll see on the real test. That makes this a valuable preparation tool for those looking to become commercial drivers in “The Wolverine State.” To get prepared for the Michigan CDL, take this practice test now.
