    Im approved for orientation on the 30th, everyhting has been finalized and i am gonna be in auto to road test. Knowing that im not too worried. I remember the basics of driving a big rig forward and i remember the basics of backing. Im not afraid to goal or pull up or even pull around to reposition
     
    Moosetek13 and dptrucker Thank this.

    I didn’t even have to back/park in my orientation. A guy took 4 of us and tested us. He had one person alley dock and once he saw thst he could do it, he just said “alright everyone get on the truck, let’s go do the road test” lol and then the actual test after your training is a joke. At least it was in Memphis. You get inside a truck that’s already hooked up to a spot and pull up and turn left to a barrel. You stop at the barrel and back right into the spot you were in.
