    Im not sure, travis said they tell you to call in everyday after you get your driver code, except on the weekends. When he called in he told them he would be ready to leave on tuesday and wouldnt you know it, he got a call from his trainer on tuesday. As for myself im telling them i will be ready to go yesturday lol what time do you have to call in today? Mine is between 1-3pm central but since im est. it will be between 2-4pm my time.

    I start at C1 next sunday. This thread gives me hope lol. I am above average intelligence (not bragging, just saying) and haven't got into anything with wheels I couldn't drive. I also like the idea of the students being as close as you guys are. I haven't been in a classroom in 17 years so I am a little nervous about the whole thing. But excited to be doing something new.

    well which campus are you going to ? the hotel in fort wayne it crap but it is good enough to get you where u need to be .as far as the school study ur e gears as many times as you can before you go class is kind of wierd u go in on monday and do ur dot physical take half day for everyone to get done then u have half day of studying then tuesday u have full day of class wed ur going to have a review and test for the state exam i passed all mine the first time except inianna regular driver test lol i know i study for everything else but if not from indianna study it cause all speed limits are diffrent and just laws in general then thurs friday class mapping and logs week 2 is the range and road usually road morning for half day and range in the afternoon driving and the range will come quickly but pti will not u have to study with other people in ur class it helps for the written and pti it was probally the best way i found u should not have a prob if u put the effort in after class everyday and listen to what they say in class you will do fine chris or randy are the best road instructor s and scott is the best range instructor when on the range watch other do the range and listen to what the instuctor tells them what they did wrong and how they fix it i did my course in 3 weeks some people take 4 or 5 weeks or never get it

    Wow, holy run on sentence lol. There is some good info there, just hard to pick out. I will be in Ft wayne. I have been doing the egears thing every day. I think I have it all memorized. The only part I had trouble with is the #### standard IN drivers test questions. Got 100% On every part of the tests but the #### standard knowledge test, got 45/48 right. But for me anything less than 100% is not acceptable so I gotta keep studying. A lot different than the PA laws I'll tell ya that. But any kind of written test I wont have a problem with as long as I have something written to study. Its nice to have an eidetic memory (I can remember most anything I read).

    Mapping shouldn't be too hard for me. I used a road atlas for many years trying to find small obscure cemeteries out in the middle of BFE PA.
