    Have a safe trip. My class started taking our state CDL exams yesterday, roughly 50% passed all 3 parts on their first try. I passed my pre-trip inspection with air brakes test, straight line back and offset backing, but the 90-degree alley dock didn't go well at all. I made it at least 5 or 6 times in a row without any assistance while we were practicing, but blew it on the test. So, I have to go back tomorrow or Thursday for a re-test and then it's onto the road test.

    Relax, 10000 idiots have passed that test this year. You're smarter than all of them. You got this.

    Drive the trailer, both when setting up and backing. Pull ups are to aim the trailer. Forget the tractor. Small movements and small corrections.

    Didn't want to give a pro pointer at this stage and mess you up, but you've heard so much...i think you need to simplify.

    Go get em tiger.

    I passed my backing and road test today in the rain and so I am an official Class A driver again.!!! I drove for PAM back in like 2006, 2007 but like a dummy, I didn't keep up with my requirements because I was making pretty good money selling cars. Lesson learned. So, off to CFI orientation on Monday!!
     
    RoadRooster and Chinese Bandit Thank this.
