In an effort to improve safety, recent federal changes have amended the commercial driver's license (CDL) knowledge and skills testing standards and set new minimum standards for states to issue commercial learner's permits (CLPs). While some states have until 2014 to comply with the new standards, several states have already begun to adopt the new regulations. To help seasoned truckers and learners comply with the new regulations, eGears, which has been providing online and video-based training for truck drivers since 2008, has just launched a way to help ensure speedier, more effective training with its new Class B CDL Permit Course (http://www.e-gears.com/products/class-b/cdl-permit-course).

Catering to bus, dump truck and straight-truck drivers, the Class B CDL Permit Course is unlike any other type of test preparation in the marketplace. While it offers comprehensive instruction for the two basic Class B CDL permit classes -- "general knowledge" and "air brakes" -- it capitalizes on innovative technology to provide an interactive training experience as well.

"Many of our competitors offer CDL permit education that's based solely on a multiple-choice format that's very status quo," says Mike Curts, president of eGears. "But at eGears, we've developed a very progressive, yet far from intimidating methodology that's saving people both time and money. Our Class B CDL Permit Course enables people to understand the information quickly and thoroughly, boosting their odds of success for both the test and job."

Specifically, the Class B CDL Permit Course is a 3-step study program that offers interactive tutorial questions and multimedia content; graded practice permit tests and feedback; and a variety of online and office learning tools. Its two-dimensional, user-friendly feedback empowers users to effectively grasp, not just memorize, facts. What's more, eGears eliminates the need for people to read the CDL manual before testing, thanks the course's "Key Facts" that come directly from the manual and assist in answering questions correctly.

"The new rules and regulations surrounding the testing is a hot issue, but, bottom line, we've got the solution for those who need to pass these tests quickly while becoming safe, responsible and defensive drivers," Curts says. "All our tests, including the new Class B CDL Permit Course, are developed by expert truck driver trainers, educators and savvy new media specialists. Hands down, our approach is the best way to ready yourself for a permit and retain the critical knowledge for years to come."
