    Haven't even thought about fish from them.
    The pizza is questionable as well

    Saturday day 5
    We had half day class Saturday watching video of crashes and fmcsa stuff. Used the laundry facilities at the terminal and went for a steak dinner with my classmates.
    Monday day 7
    Straight to the truck. Each driver took a lap around the test route and back to the yard.
    Blind side backing then front side. Everyone in my truck is getting it.
    The other half of our class has yet to leave the yard. They have been backing non stop. They are getting pretty pissed off and on their second instructor.

    Oh we all spent Sunday doing JJ Keller training videos. Lot of yawn time in some of those!

    Missed recapping a couple days. It was all driving and backing.
    We took a pre CDL test yesterday which half our class crapped the bed in one way or another.
    I somehow decided to go from straightline backing to parallel and skip the offset. I retested and hit them later in the day.
    The rookie week one class started Monday. 2 have quit in the first week. One said his family missed him too much (wrong profession if that happens in 4 days) and we haven't heard about the second.
    Official CDL test on Wednesday next week.

    Overall I am happy with the experience and the training.
     
    TB John and Chinatown Thank this.

    It's Wednesday of week 3
    Test day. Still all 5 in my group and we head over to the 3rd party testing facility this morning.

    We've been backing and driving the test loop continuously for the past 4 days.

    Heading downstairs for stove coffee. I'm ready!
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    Out of 5 we had one fail and one not test. Both will test tomorrow.
    One got to the parallel back and just crapped the bed. He's done it over and over but got screwy and couldn't recover. The other had a permit issue that got resolved to late to still test yesterday.
