CDL Manuals Mississippi

The Mississippi commercial driver license manual contains material to help those interested in a commercial driving career pass the necessary exams, which are a knowledge exam and a skills exam. Applicants must demonstrate competency of skills and knowledge relative to the type of commercial vehicle they wish to drive. The knowledge test portion of the CDL exam consists of a general knowledge exam, which is primarily an inspection of the vehicle prior to travel. This includes ensuring the vehicle's brakes function properly, that gauges are working normally, inspecting steering mechanisms, suspension and a host of other considerations. The exam itself costs $38, while the cost of the license depends on what type of commercial vehicle one intends to operate.
