Ready to attempt the pre-trip inspection endorsement test? Before spending time and money to take the test at the DMV, take our free North Carolina CDL Pre-Trip Inspection Practice Test to ensure you are ready. On our practice test you will find 30 questions covering both inside and outside inspections. If you get 24 or more of the questions right you are ready to take the real test and earn your endorsement, which could help you qualify for higher paying jobs.

The questions on this practice test are multiple choice and come with answer explanations. We suggest you read each explanation to further increase your understanding of important topics. Here are a couple of sample questions that you may find on the practice test: If you have inspected the engine compartment, vehicle front, vehicle side, tractor/truck rear, and trailer front, what would you inspect next? When you get in the cab and start the engine during the in-cab part of your inspection, what do you do first? The test is formatted and written similarly to the real test to get you as prepared as possible to pass. In fact, our practice test is drawn from the same resource as the real test – the North Carolina CDL Handbook. Don’t be surprised if you see similar or even the same questions on the real test after you take our practice test. One difference between our practice test and the real test is that you can take our test multiple times – as many times as you need to build the knowledge to pass. Take our test and start practicing now.
