Are you considering taking the NM Class A test to become a commercial driver in Alburquerque, Santa Fe, Las Cruces or any other part of the state? Well done for deciding to take on this challenging set of assessments! Fortunately, passing the Class A permit test in New Mexico does not have to be as difficult as you might think. In fact, using our Class A license NM practice test can make preparing for and passing the exam a breeze! The practical driving examination is the main thing that makes Class A more challenging than Class B and Class C. Some of the heaviest vehicles on our roads are included in Class A, like tank vehicles and livestock transportation trucks. These are obviously going to be more difficult to manage than regular cars or box trucks! Though, there is an upside to the fact that Class A requires more advanced driving skills. Namely, the fact that holding a Class A license also qualifies you to drive all smaller vehicles from Class B and Class C! Though whether you can operate these vehicles professionally would depend on you having the required endorsement qualifications for that vehicle or situation.

Our Class A practice test for New Mexico will prepare you for the general knowledge MVD permit test, but it does not contain any endorsement-related DMV test questions. The endorsement exams come after the general knowledge test; they’re smaller and serve to add extra qualifications to your main commercial driving license. You might be aware that applying for a Class A license means you’ll need to take some mandatory endorsement exams. This is the other reason that the NM MVD test for a Class A license is more challenging! There are more compulsory written exams. The endorsements you can choose from include Passenger, HazMat, Tank and School Bus; the two endorsements you must obtain for a Class A license are Air Brake and Combination Vehicles. It is important that you understand how these features effect your driving as practically all vehicles in Class A have them. When you’re finished using this 2021 MVD practice test for New Mexico, you might want to try one of our other free CDL practice tests which target the endorsements.

On this Class A CDL practice test you’ll be faced with 20 multiple-choice and “true or false” questions which precisely mirror those that appear on the MVD permit test in New Mexico. You can read about basic vehicle control, skid control and recovery, space management, communicating, shifting gears, vehicle inspection, road signs and all the other key CDL general knowledge topics in the NM MVD handbook – your ultimate study companion for the exam. You may have noticed that the topics we mentioned are not specific to Class A drivers; this is because the MVD test in New Mexico only deals with material that applies to every commercial driver and commercial driving occupation. Therefore, you’ll sit exactly the same exam whether you’re applying for a Class C, Class B or Class A driving license. This means that our Class A general knowledge practice test for New Mexico also works perfectly well as a quiz for Class B and Class C drivers!

There is no time-limit on this MVD CDL practice test NM quiz, so you can take as long as you like to complete it. Though as we’ve kept it nice and short, you should be able to work through it in just a few minutes!
