    So I failed my upgrade test. I over thought it n missed simple stuff turn i was suppose to make and mirror check. I have test anxiety and I started calling out all the signs. So I have to go out with a new trainer for 14 days and got to retake. I have a few questions am I the only one to fail upgrade. If you failed did you pass the second time. And how was the first try and second try different or was it the same.

    You are going to have to stop being consumed in Anxiety. If you are having that now with a nice serene test drive, I worry what will happen when you are fighting for the GWB cross bronx on a bad night.

    If you are so busy being nervous or whatever and stop keeping eyes up and out ahead of the truck making decisions before you have to make them then it's no good.

    what signs.?

    STOP signs, ok....don't miss those

    ONE WAY signs, ok.....don't miss those

    coffee shop signs, so what?

    traffic signs to me are way more important than advertising signs.

    if that tester was being specific for non-traffic signs, he may have just been looking for a way to cut you out and send you home.

    Also you are busy converting signs into spoken English.

    Quit it.

    I agree with 157 Trainer was less than vague lets put it that way. Oh look, there is a girlie bar with 35.00 special, squeal and point.

    See how the trainer likes THAT..... serves him right.

    I am being snarky when I write that. My way of trucking is to reduce the worlds worth of irrevelant and unimportant BS to just one thing. Anyone fixing to be in my way? And what will I need to do about it?

    i cannot recall all the CR England posts, regarding this situation, but i can vaguely recall that nearly all went home after failing "some sort" of testing.

    CR gets government monies for training people. all they have to show is that they did thier job, and if the student failed, so be it.....then England loudly announces, "next round of government paid students", "come on down"...
