Springfield, MA (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
It was announced today by TheTruckersReport.com (http://www.thetruckersreport.com) that there is a steady rise in the number of truck drivers taking online practice tests for their commercial driver's licenses (CDL) in 2012, indicating a need for increased familiarity with a growing number of federal and state regulations and restrictions.
Announcements from the TheTruckersReport.com shared that in 2012, the number of CDL practice tests being taken online has risen steadily to levels now topping more than 100,000 tests administered every month. Site owner Samuel Barradas stated, "There are a number of reasons why our practice tests are becoming increasingly popular for commercial drivers but chief among them is a greater number of regulations and restrictions to consider in commercial truck driving. Today's drivers need to know a great deal more than they did in the past on both a state and a federal level, so having variety in practice tests prepares these professionals to think on their feet and to meet their CDL test challenges head-on."
The tests administered by TheTruckersReport.com offer a greater depth than similar online practice tests because they employ a database filled with hundreds of potential questions. Barradas claims it is this diversity and depth that make his tests increasingly popular, because the test takers are left better prepared for facing the actual test questions. "With most sites the practice tests are static, so taking them more than once is not offering you a chance to grow or increase your depth of knowledge. Our system makes it so you never are posed the same sets of questions twice; so drivers and students are constantly learning more and becoming better prepared for any test question posed for real."
Barradas states that the right CDL practice tests have a direct, positive economic impact for the truckers using them. "While most practice tests are free, the actual CDL test may cost up to $90 for each time it is taken. It makes perfect sense to take full advantage of the free practice tests as often as possible - provided the practice tests are offering enough realism to warrant it. Our data sources ensure we are offering test takers accuracy, variety and depth. Also important, is that our tests are timed much like the real tests are time-restricted, so takers can feel additionally prepared to handle the extra pressure. It all translates directly into better CDL test preparedness. Even though there is a driver shortage being reported recently, the continued rise in the number of tests administered here is a clear sign that more people are becoming interested in a professional driving career. As this growth illustrates, the best way for today's drivers to be prepared for a CDL test is to practice in realistically accurate environment. "
