This website is the result of years of work by one person collecting information on the acquiring of the NYS Metal Coil Endorsement. Along the way I have changed the way I have presented information, and adjusted the formatting to reflect the strengths of each new website. I continue to find conflicting info while expanding it. This endorsement is one of, if not the hardest of the NYS endorsements to obtain.
I started reading the NYS Driver's Manual for the Safe Securement of Metal Coils and Other Cargo Download MV-79 and found it to be very lacking in the information to successfully pass the exam. My first attempt at passing it was in December of 2008 while I was a student at the Professional Driver Institute.

A practice test for the Metal Coil Endorsement section is in development right now. This is a labor intensive process and if there are any developers out there that would like to help out and get credit on this website please contact me at the email address above. I want the Metal Coil Endorsement practice exams to be the best study guide out there.
Distracted driving is a very serious,
life-threatening practice and I will not rest until we stop it. I am just one of many that are leading the effort but you are the key to preventing distracted driving.
The message is simple – Put it down!
