CDL Skills Test Backing Exercises and Pre-Trip Advice

How to pass the CDL Road Trip / Skills Test and Pre-trip Advice?

When taking the CDL Class A Road Test also known as the CDL Skills Test, it is the time for a driver to communicate what they know about every system on the truck.  For example be prepared to point to and describe many different components of the commercial truck:  light systems, air brake systems, engine, gears and drive train, kingpin hookup and unhook, how to test the air brakes before using the vehicle.  In fact, you must slightly tug on your air brakes every time you do a walk around before starting out in the commercial vehicle.  Adding slight pressure can test the brakes to makes sure they hold.

However the best way to check the brakes on a commercial vehicle is the 7 Step Air Brake Check.

If you memorize the seven steps, you can pass any CDL Skills test.

You can find an example here.

Another big part of the CDL Skills test is backing techniques for the commercial vehicle.

There are two important types of backing each driver must prove they can accomplish.  You cannot get a second chance if you hit so drivers can fail the test easily. 

First is the 90 degree angle driver's side alley backup exercise.

skilltest-backing-up

90 degree backing for CDL Skills Test

The second is the Offset Back / Right exercise.

 

skilltest-backing-up-offset

Offset backing for CDL Skills Test is part of passing the CDL driving test.

Then after proving the ability to communicate all working systems and preform proper backing technique, a road trip will be required.  The biggest thing to watch for right at the beginning of the road trip… there will always be an overpass with a height sign on it.  It can vary from 12 feet to 17 or more feet high for bridges, but as soon as you pass the overpass or bridge the instructor will say did you see the height for the bridge and if you do not answer it correctly you miss points.   Also, never let your wheel hit the curb for any reason, it was an automatic disqualification in my case where I barely clipped a curb that was recessed and level to the street but he said he had to fail.  I did a retake for another $100.00 a week later and passed with ease.  So do not be disappointed if you do not pass the skills test on your first try.

CDL Drivers Who Have Sleep Apnea

CDL Drivers Who Have Sleep Apnea

A research clinical study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania was sponsored by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the American Transportation Research Institute of the American Trucking Associations found that almost one-third (33%) of commercial truck drivers have mild to severe sleep apnea.1

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is closely related to insomnia and is recognized as a breathing-related sleep disorder that causes brief interruptions of breathing during sleep. When CDL drivers have pauses in breathing they can last at least 10 seconds or more and can occur up to 400 times a night. Sleep apnea is a serious, potentially life-threatening medical condition that often goes unrecognized and undiagnosed.

Risk Factors for Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea occurs in a variety of age groups and both sexes, but there are several factors that may put CDL Drivers at higher risk:
Being over weight
Family History of obesity
Having a small upper airway
Ethnicity
Having a recessed chin, small jaw, or a large overbite
A large neck size (17 inches or greater for men, 16 inches or greater for women)
Being age 41 or older
Smoking and alcohol use

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Gasping or chocking while sleeping
Morning headaches and nausea
Loss of sex drive/impotence
Excessive daytime sleepiness
Irritability and/or feelings of depression
Disturbed sleep
Loss of Concentration and Memory Loss
Frequent nighttime urination
Loud Snoring

How to Diagnose Sleep Apnea

In order to diagnose sleep apnea, your doctor may send you to a sleep center for testing. You may be asked to spend a night at the center, where experts will monitor your sleep. The sleep study will determine the severity of your insomnia and / or sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition and any professional driver who is determined to have sleep apnea will be placed into the DOT database with an allowance of temporary or provisional CDL Class A Driver Licenses. If one doctor denies your temporary CDL, go to another clinic because each doctor may assess the situation differently and I have seen many second opinions get their temporary CDL. This means you go get a DOT physical every year instead of the usual every two years.

Can Sleep Apnea Affect Your Driving?

Because sleep apnea affects your sleep, it also affects your daytime alertness and performance. Insomnia is a component of sleep apnea, and this is why it must be regulated by the DOT. They cannot have Class A Drivers falling asleep at the wheel. Untreated sleep apnea can make it difficult for you to stay awake, focus your eyes, and react quickly while driving. Research studies show that people with untreated sleep apnea have an increased risk of being involved in a fatigue-related motor vehicle crash.

Many sleep apnea patients say they never fall asleep while driving. That may be true. But remember, you don’t have to fall asleep to have a crash. You simply have to be inattentive or less alert — and with untreated sleep apnea; you are not as sharp as you should be.

Can You Still Drive if You Have Sleep Apnea?

Yes! While FMCSA regulations do prescribe that a person with a medical history or clinical diagnosis of any condition likely to interfere with their ability to drive safely cannot be medically qualified to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in interstate commerce.

However, once successfully treated by a physician in many cases a Class A CDL driver may regain their “medically-qualified-to-drive” status. It is important to note that most cases of sleep apnea can be treated successfully, and more importantly you can get a temporary CDL to cover you until the doctor can get your medical condition under control. Some common problems preventing CDL drivers from working are high blood pressure and sleep apnea. Both conditions can often improve with daily walking of 45 minutes to 1 hour, and not eating past 7PM EVER. By doing these two simple things you can regain your health and regain full Class A CDL driving privileges.

What Should You Do When Diagnosed With Sleep Apnea?

You and/or your doctor should contact the medical qualifying examiner to determine your fitness to operate a commercial motor vehicle and to get help with treatment. Often times medical professionals are able to help CDL drivers with medication that helps with sleep apnea or a medical device CPAP Machines and Sleep Therapy Devices can control sleep apnea so CDL drivers can hit the road.

What Level of Sleep Apnea (mild, moderate, severe) Disqualifies a CMV Driver?

Any diagnoses of sleep apnea can be disqualifying. Most are at a level of sleep apnea that is moderate to severe… and that interferes with safe driving. The medical examiner must qualify and determine a driver’s medical fitness for ability to operate a Class A vehicle and is regulated by the DOT.

What are the Obligations of a Motor Carrier Regarding Employees with Sleep Apnea?

A motor carrier may not require or permit a driver to operate a Class A CDL vehicle if the driver has a medical condition — such as sleep apnea — that would affect one's ability to safely operate the commercial vehicle.
It is crucial persons with sleep apnea fully comply with the treatment provided by their physician. They should not drive if they are not comply with treatment. Once a CDL driver is effectively treated, and complying with that treatment, that driver can manage sleep apnea and secure their ability to drive a commercial vehicle safely.

Volvo says layoffs coming at Va truck plant

Volvo says layoffs coming at Va truck plant

Volvo Trucks will layoff an unspecified number of workers from its Dublin, Va.-based truck manufacturing plant late this summer, the company has said. The layoffs stem from a slowdown in North America truck orders, says Volvo spokesman John Mies.

Mies says Volvo notified the plant’s workers that the plant production cuts will come in early August, but details on worker layoffs are still scant, he said. “It’s too soon to say how many people or exactly when” the layoffs will come, Mies said. “This reduction is a step in our continued adaptation to market conditions,” Mies added, citing a recent Volvo report that downwardly revised the total truck orders forecast for 2016.

The late summer round of layoffs will be the second of the year for Volvo’s New River Valley plant, where all North American Volvo trucks are built. The plant cut more than 700 workers in February due to projected slowdowns in truck orders.

Fitness rule data shows poor connection to carriers’ crash risk

Analysis of FMCSA’s Safety Fitness rule data shows poor connection to carriers’ crash risk

Published June, 02 2016
sfdfoiadata

Chart pulled from TransAdvise’s public comment made on the Safety Fitness Determination rulemaking.

New analysis published recently indicates that the agency’s January-published proposal to revamp the way it determines carriers’ fitness to operate could be plagued by the same “crash flaw” issue that’s plagued the larger Compliance, Safety, Accountability program from its 2011 onset.

Numbers obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request made by the Alliance for Safe, Efficient and Competitive Truck Transportation show that more than half (56 percent) of the carriers FMCSA said would have been deemed “Unfit” in 2011 under the inspection-based portions of the Safety Fitness Determination rule — and who remained in business for at least the next year — recorded zero crashes in that 12-month time span.

Perhaps even more concerning for owner-operators and small carriers, ASECTT’s Freedom of Information Act-obtained numbers show that 76 percent of carriers with five or fewer trucks, and who had been flagged Unfit to operate, recorded no crashes in the 12 months succeeding.

[rr-story-promotion id=”136466″ align=”center”]

ASECTT obtained the data from FMCSA on May 4, according to a roughly 60-page comment filed by a coalition of carrier groups, including ASECTT, during the Safety Fitness Determination rule’s public comment period. Transportation research firm TransAdvise, which filed an affidavit as part of the coalition’s comments, performed the analysis for the coalition. ASECTT’s FOIA request, and the numbers handed over by FMCSA therefrom, only pertain to carriers that would have been found “Unfit” based on inspection data, rather than the several thousand carriers that would have been found Unfit in 2011 under the rule at large.

The numbers — and the questions they present about the proposed rule’s methodology — add to the mounting pressure the agency’s faced since publishing the proposed rule in January. The rule’s heavy use of data from the Compliance, Safety, Accountability Safety Measurement System’s BASICs violates both federal law and common sense, trucking industry groups have argued. Legislation has also been presented in the U.S. House to block the agency from continuing to work on the rule, pending an overhaul of the CSA program.

The public comment period for the rule ended May 23. CCJ explored some of the main arguments surrounding the rule earlier this week — click here to see that coverage. A one-month reply period is currently ongoing, too, until June 23. Click here to leave a reply comment.

The SFD rule would in short do away with the agency’s Satisfactory, Unsatisfactory and Conditional ratings, which are made during on-site compliance reviews. The SFD rule would replace those ratings with a simple “Unfit” designation; all other carriers would be presumed fit to operate. The rule also changes the way the agency can dole out such a rating, allowing it to use roadside inspection and violation data — rather than an on-site review — to tag a carrier as Unfit. Carriers failing two SMS BASICS would be hit with an automatic Unfit rating. Carriers failing one would be flagged for an investigation.

[rr-story-promotion id=”135577″ align=”center”]

TransAdvise’s analysis of the agency’s January-presented data focuses on the 382 that would have been deemed “Unfit” based either wholly or in part on inspection-derived data.
