    Congrats on your test both of you... In Joplin there's a shuttle bus that runs from roughly 7 in the morning till 8 at night makes a loop from the hotel's to the headquarters to the Walmart in the bunch of the restaurants along the main drag.

    At Crowder, there is no shuttle but they'll probably be somebody in your dorm with a car that will take you back to the driving school from the dormitories and so forth.

    I've only seen the guys dorm and that was a living room with a TV the bedrooms didn't have it. I don't know about the dorm rooms for couples.... I think it's a heart-shaped bed so you can celebrate Valentine's Day! Yikes!!!!

    Sorry for the late reply guys! Wife and I made the long and grueling Greyhound ride! First time rider and I gotta say I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy haha. Horrid bus ride aside we are here in Joplin!! Settling into the La Quinta for the night love it!

    Although we did have a change of plans! We were supposed to go to Crowder college! But since the dorms at Crowder were all booked our only options were to stay in separate male and female dorms or go to Trucking Dynasty in Springfield, And have our own hotel room it was a no brainer for us, so Hollywood that might be something that you should be aware of when your headed up here. We had no idea about the change of plans until we pulled into the Greyhound station in Joplin.

    Anyway! So going to CFI HQ as planned tomorrow morning, then taking a shuttle to Springfield after, where they are gonna set us up in a Days Inn for our month of schooling! Will update ya'll when I find out more!
