The key to passing the New York CDL exam is preparation – and to help you prepare we have created a new NY CDL General Knowledge Practice Test Simulator. This is the second test in our General Knowledge series, and it features 50 additional questions based on the material and subject matter found in the NY CDL manual. You can expect questions topics ranging from safe vehicle operation to handling emergencies.

What are the two special conditions where you should downshift? Retarders keep you from skidding when the road is slippery – true or false? These are examples of the types of questions that are on this practice test. You need to answer at least 80% of the questions correctly in order to pass. If you do not pass immediately, don’t worry, you can take the test an unlimited number of times. To help you study, this test also has a handy progress tracker and a Missed Questions Bank feature designed to store your missed questions for later review.

All of this is why if you want to be a commercial driver in the Empire State taking this practice test is a great first step. In fact, if you are serious about earning your CDL, we recommend you take this practice right away.
