South Dakota is famous for many things, but some people may not know that it is also an “international export powerhouse,” according to the Rapid City Journal. Our state’s $1.6 billion in exports each year often start their journey out of the state in a commercial vehicle driven by someone just like you. Getting your CDL means becoming part of that economy, and this quiz will get you one step closer, by letting you practice answering 50 multiple-choice questions based on the South Dakota Commercial Driver License Manual, and covering topics from braking to cargo rules. Each questions has a hint, and an explanation, which you should read carefully since it will help you understand the subject matter more clearly. Good luck on your CDL exam, practice often, and drive safely!
