    trust me, there are days I feel like posting student driver on my own doors. Been driving this regular 10 spd for 4 months now. That makes a total of about 5 months driving one since I got my cdl back in 92. 9s 13s and super 10s I can shift in my sleep, not do much a regular 10. :(

    I Know that this is an old thread, but I am the op and wanted to give everyone an update. I took some time, did some soul searching, regrouped, worked really hard, passed all my tests, graduated from CDL school today and got my CDL! Thank you to everyone for the kind words and encouragement. I look forward to the start of my professional driving career!

    Do you have a family member in another state that you could go test in? I know Wisconsin uses non DOT officers for testing, PM if this state will work for you and I will give you name of a tester and you can rent a truck also.....Some days I am John Wayne some Days I am Jerry Lewis backing...good luck

    P.S. I hit a dock so hard in the yacht one day it busted the pole right off the dock infront of about 3 thousand people...I got on the dock and took a bow....it happens...
