It is with great excitement we unveil 2 new training tools. The first available tool is an interactive Pre-Trip Inspection Checklist. The pre-trip inspection is a crucial part of becoming a truck driver. Before obtaining a commercial driver’s license, most states require truckers to pass a pre-trip inspection test. The CDL pre-trip inspection test can seem overwhelming due to the number of items that need to be checked. However, this tool will help those that are trying to become truck drivers or experienced drivers that need to refresh on their skills.

The second tool available is how to safely lower a landing gear. Over time we have seen injuries to the upper extremities due to improperly lowering a landing gear. This tool will help guide you through what body position is best to avoid an injury.
