CDL Air Brakes Practice Test

Air brakes use compressed air to make the brakes work. Air brakes are a good and safe way of stopping large and heavy vehicles, but the brakes must be well maintained and used properly. Air brakes are really 3 different braking systems: service brake, parking brake, and emergency brake.

• The service brake system applies and releases the brakes when you use the brake pedal during normal driving.
• The parking brake system applies and releases the parking brakes when you use the parking brake control.
• The emergency brake system uses parts of the service and parking brake systems to stop the vehicle in a brake system failure.

CDL Air Brakes Practice Test

1 / 50

What part of the braking system is used to adjust the brakes?

2 / 50

What is the maximum leakage for a combination of 3 or more vehicles in the Applied Leakage Test?

3 / 50

Air brakes use __________ to make the brakes work

4 / 50

The __________ protects the tank and the rest of the system from too much pressure

5 / 50

The __________ controls when the air compressor will pump air into the air storage tanks.

6 / 50

When the tank pressure falls to the "cut-in" pressure (around ____ psi), the governor allows the compressor to start pumping again.

7 / 50

You should be in the proper gear before starting down a hill.

8 / 50

In newer vehicles with air brakes, you put on the __________ using a diamond-shaped, yellow, push-pull control knob.

9 / 50

Which of the following factors can cause brakes to fade or fail?

10 / 50

There are special braking procedures you must follow when driving a tractor trailer combination with ABS?

11 / 50

When air tank pressure rises to the "cut-out" level (around __________ or psi), the governor stops the compressor from pumping air

12 / 50

Foundation brakes are used at each wheel. The most common type is the __________ brake.

13 / 50

How often should you drain your air tanks?

14 / 50

Compressed air usually has some water and some compressor oil in it, which is bad for the air brake system. The water can freeze in cold weather and cause brake failure

15 / 50

A warning signal you can see must come on before the air pressure in the tanks falls below ______ psi.

16 / 50

What keeps air from going out if the air compressor develops a leak?

17 / 50

Front wheel braking is good under all conditions.

18 / 50

__________ are most often used for emergency and parking brakes

19 / 50

__________ are used to hold compressed air

20 / 50

If the safety valve releases air, the air braking system is working properly.

21 / 50

The __________ system uses parts of the service and parking brake systems to stop the vehicle in a brake system failure.

22 / 50

The use of brakes on a long, steep downgrade is only a supplement to the braking effect of the engine.

23 / 50

The braking power of spring brakes depends on the brakes being in adjustment. If the brakes are not adjusted properly, __________ will work right.

24 / 50

The ________ system applies and releases the brakes when you use the brake pedal during normal driving

25 / 50

All vehicles with air brakes have a pressure gauge connected to the __________.

26 / 50

The __________ pumps air into the air storage tanks (reservoirs).

27 / 50

Pressing and releasing the pedal unnecessarily can let air out faster than the compressor can replace it. If the pressure gets too low, the __________ won't work.

28 / 50

Compressed air usually has some __________ in it, which is bad for the air brake system.

29 / 50

_________ does not necessarily shorten your stopping distance, but it does help you keep the vehicle under control during hard braking

30 / 50

The air compressor should cut out no higher than ___ psi and should cut in no lower than ___ psi for a bus, and no lower than ___ psi for trucks.

31 / 50

To test the low pressure warning signal, all of the following must be done except:

32 / 50

When making a normal stop in a manual transmission vehicle you should engage the clutch __________

33 / 50

What gauge tells you how much pressure is in the air tanks?

34 / 50

Never push the brake pedal down when the spring brakes are on

35 / 50

Which vehicles must have low air pressure warning signals?

36 / 50

This type of brake is a parking brake held on by mechanical force.

37 / 50

Do not use parking brakes if the brakes are very hot or if the brakes are very wet in freezing temperatures.

38 / 50

What is the maximum leakage rate for single vehicles in the Applied Leakage Test?

39 / 50

While driving down long, steep downgrades, your brakes

40 / 50

To test that spring brakes come on automatically, all of the following are true except:

41 / 50

What is the maximum leakage for a combination of 2 vehicles in the Applied Leakage Test?

42 / 50

Front wheel brakes are only good for driving under wet or icy conditions.

43 / 50

For dual air systems, air pressure should build

44 / 50

This gauge shows how much air pressure you are applying to the brakes

45 / 50

A slack adjuster needs adjustment if it move more than how many inches from where the push rod attaches to it?

46 / 50

What pumps air into the air storage tanks?

47 / 50

Tractor and straight truck spring brakes will come fully on when air pressure drops to a range of _________ psi

48 / 50

Air brakes are really three different braking systems:

49 / 50

What brake system has 2 separate air brake systems, which use a single set of brake controls?

50 / 50

The _______ system applies and releases the parking brakes when you use the parking brake control
