    Keep practicing and ask for another road tester

    And don’t let them intimidate you at all

    Now that's some funny #### right there!

    @davidtrucker88 don't sweat it. If you fail a third time you can retake the written test and get three more tries. That's what I had to do to get my CDL again back in 2013.

    That being said, you should ask your instructor if Swift Academy allows you to retake the written exam. I'm going to bet that they will.

    Nothing to add except that you got this far, you're going to get it on the next one. You got this:

    "Relax, find your center, and....BE...
    THE TRUCK".

    I'd wish you luck, but you don't need it. You have skills.

    After clutching into gear.... hesitate a fraction of a second before giving it fuel and the ride will go a little smother. Good luck to you.

    Do not pull into a intersection if you can not clear the entire intersection completely, sometimes you have to sit a bit at those intersections to get all the way through. And as for a complete ballistic passenger, they need to be off loaded at nearest safe place, just say they are a hazard and you can not continue. You need to be relaxed and calm while doing any driving.

    Good thing you reported her asap. I guess any idiot can be a Swift instructor. Good Luck

    Hey op, I can tell you a couple things.

    relax, I would complain to the people in power, explain them they owe you for that stunt of the examiner. It isn't her place to tell you what to do, she should worry more about her lack of patients than you driving, you are in charge of that truck even with a permit.

    Second and most important, you are lucky the guy moved, he doesn't have to and if it was me, I would not move.
     
    x1Heavy, Lepton1 and Jazz1 Thank this.

    I edited several posts in this thread. The driving examiner's sexual orientation, which at this time is pure speculation, doesn't matter.
    Let's concentrate on her behavior. That should be enough in this case.
