CDL Test/Practice Pad Dimensions

We’ll help you determine the total length and cone placement of a CDL Practice pad. Your pad should have room for all 4 backing maneuvers. You’ll start with 3 lines painted on a hard surface. Each line is 100′ long. The distance between each line is 12’. You’ll place cones on each line every 10’.


A CDL Test Practice Pad must fit four maneuvers:

  • Straight Line
  • Off Set
  • Parallel Park
  • Alley Dock
