If you live in Providence, Newport, Warwick or Cranston and you’re hoping to apply to the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles for a commercial driving learners permit, you’ll find some great resources to help you along, here on our website. In order to secure a commercial driving learners permit and begin taking driving lessons, you will first need to pass the RI CDL general knowledge test for 2018. One of the fastest ways to achieve this is to factor our 2018 DMV CDL practice test for Rhode Island into your study routine! But before we introduce you to our quiz, let’s talk a little more about the CDL general knowledge RI exam itself.

This is an extensive, 50 question exam which targets all the essential commercial driving general knowledge material that you’ll need to know, inside and out, before you can safely get behind the wheel. It is incredibly important to understand the theory behind basic vehicle control, shifting gears, seeing, communicating, skid control and recovery and space management before you start learning to operate your chosen vehicle on the roads. Our Rhode Island CDL practice test will help to build your understanding of these topics and many others. You will also need to learn about safety procedures and regulations if you hope to drive professionally, so the exam will also measure your knowledge of issues like pre-journey vehicle inspection, accident and emergency procedures, dealing with fires, aggressive drivers, drug and alcohol considerations and basic hazardous material rules. Finally, the exam will include questions on road sign meanings and what the road laws are in different situations. You’ll be glad to know that these subjects are also addressed on our learners permit practice test!

As you can see, there is a huge amount of information to get through before you’ll be ready to sit the CDL general knowledge exam. In addition to this DMV practice permit test for Rhode Island, you will need a copy of the CDL general knowledge study guide. This manual contains in-depth explanations of every CDL general knowledge topic and can be downloaded for free from the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles website. The great news is that our CDL general knowledge practice test for Rhode Island students is also free! So, you’ve got access to the two best study resources you could hope for, without it costing you a penny. This quiz and the study guide make a killer combination when you use them together; you’ll find you’re ready to sit the real-life exam in a matter of weeks rather than months, if you use them wisely!

Our RI CDL general knowledge practice test will present you with true-to-life CDL general knowledge questions and answers for 2018, a large portion of which we have carefully extracted from previous exam papers that actual commercial driving students have worked on. There is every chance these questions will come up when you take your CDL general knowledge test! We have however, only included 20 multiple-choice and “true or false” questions on this test rather than using the full amount. We aimed to design a fast and efficient study tool, that is easy for commercial driving students to use frequently. Since we’ve trimmed the quiz down, you’ll be happy to hear that it takes around five minutes to complete, as opposed to the 20 minutes it takes to complete the full-length exam.

You can work on our free CDL practice tests as often as you like to improve your score. Start this quiz now to see how close you can get to the 80 percent pass-requirement!
