To work as a passenger vehicle driver, you must study state-specific passenger transportation rules and practices and use your knowledge to pass the passenger vehicles test for South Dakota drivers. This will not be the only DMV written test you need to take before working in the industry, as subjects such as rules of the road and highway signs are covered during the initial SD CDL general knowledge test. Following that assessment, you may begin preparing for the Passenger Vehicles test with guidance from the South Dakota passenger endorsement practice test available here on ePermitTest.com – providing you so not need to apply for any class-specific endorsements. We also offer a free CDL general knowledge practice test SD quiz which you should work with in preparation for the general knowledge exam, if you have not yet taken that assessment.

The class-specific endorsements mentioned above are the Combination Vehicles permit and the Air Brakes permit. Whether you require either or both these qualifications will be determined by the weight and capacity of the passenger vehicle you are training to drive. Elsewhere on our website you will find free CDL practice tests featuring questions from these endorsement tests, should you need to prepare for either of them. Class-specific endorsements should always be obtained prior to cargo-specific endorsements like the South Dakota passenger permit, which means you should avoid using this DMV passenger practice test for the time being, if either of the class-specific endorsements apply to your chosen role and you have yet to apply for them. So, how do you know whether these qualifications are necessary?

School buses, city buses and other medium-weight vehicles generally qualify as Class B. It is a legal requirement for all Class B and Class A vehicles to be fitted with air brakes, which would make the Air Brakes endorsement test mandatory for any driver who wishes to operate a vehicle of Class B or above. The Combination Vehicles endorsement is an obligatory addition to the Class A permit, which may apply to your goals if you intend to work with very large passenger vehicles such as articulated buses.  Keep in mind that working with school children would require further qualifications beyond the Passenger Vehicles endorsement, in the form of a School Bus Driver’s permit. That endorsement can be obtained after the Passenger Vehicles endorsement, using our School Bus DMV practice test for South Dakota learners.

While this CDL passenger vehicles practice test SD quiz can dramatically increase your chances of passing the P endorsement exam first time around, it cannot form the basis of your study plan on its own. All hopeful passenger vehicle operators should download an up-to-date copy of the commercial driver’s handbook from our website or the official DMV website, for the Passenger Vehicles endorsement chapter it contains. In this section of the guide, you will find clearly organized and easy-to-understand descriptions of every rule, regulation and safety consideration you will need to learn prior to the DMV permit test. There are not many sample questions included in the handbook, though you will find a wealth of legitimate exam content targeting pre and post-trip vehicle inspection, driver safety, destination announcements, vehicle evacuation and the other key passenger test topics, here on our South Dakota passenger practice test 2019 quiz.

Just like the permit test study guide, our passenger practice CDL test SD quiz is suitable for learners from Pierre, Rapid City, Sioux Falls and every other city in the state, as every test center adheres to the same guidelines.
