While the Mississippi Delta is famed as the birthplace of Blues, Mississippi’s major export has shifted to petroleum. For those inspired by the tunes of Sam Cooke and looking to explore both within and beyond the state, a career in commercial trucking beckons. The trucking industry is on a consistent rise, with job growth anticipated to continue. Embarking on this path requires passing a written knowledge test to obtain your commercial driver’s license, and possibly additional tests for various endorsements. These endorsements not only enhance your skills but also increase your marketability in the trucking job market. They include specializations like air brakes, tanker, combination vehicle, multi-trailer, Hazmat, passenger transport, and even school bus driving. To ace your exams, your first move should be studying the 2024 Mississippi Commercial Driver’s License Manual, a comprehensive guide to all the necessary knowledge and skills for your CDL journey.

How to Prepare

To get ready for the written exam you’ll need to read the entire Mississippi CDL Manual. Grab a pencil and paper and take notes as you read along. The CDL written test can pull from hundreds of possible questions, but they will all be based on the manual, so keep your mind on the task and you can learn the answer to any question you could be asked. If you feel yourself starting to lose focus, take a short break or walk and then return to studying. After you’ve read the manual, look over your notes, if you see sections you’re not so sure of, go back and reread that part of the manual. This test is to make sure that you can be a safe and confident driver for the sake of your cargo, you, and others on the road so study hard!

Final Steps

Before you head off to your local testing center, read over your notes and the manual one more time to make sure you have everything locked in your mind. Good luck on your CDL knowledge test; if you keep calm and remember what you’ve studied, you’ll be on your way to a brand new career with your commercial learner’s permit.
