    We barely got any training. I had less than 2 hours of driving practice and they only went over the pre trip once. Driving instructors didn't want to be bothered with any questions and most of their trucks are broken and don't work properly. There's a long list of ####.

    That sounds about normal for a driving school you should have gotten a little bit more practice tho but the instructors and the equipment doesn't surprise me and pretty much everyone that says they aren't ready for the test but you need to suck it up make sure you studied on your own and you should have done decent I would study and watch videos for a few days and GO DO YOUR TEST THAT YOU PAID FOR GOOD OR BAD you might surprise yourself and they push alot of people through you don't want to pay twice if you don't have to or go demand your money back

    This guy pays 6 grand out of his pocket spends 5 weeks has nothing to show for it

    I sign a contract I have my CDL in less than a month start to finish start getting paid the same day I passed my CDL test didn't cost me anything out of pocket. I can tell you I was 100% ready and confident I would pass the test and I got about seven or eight thousand miles of over the road experience including snow driving during that time

    Yet everyone on the internet still says private schools the only way to go. Okay
    G13Tomcat Thanks this.
