    Yes, but it has been a few years. My company is all auto so no chance to practice on a stick. Wish they would let me float gears, but i should be ok with double clutching.

    Ask before you test drive. They may let you float em. Different safety guys have different opinions. I asked before I tested. He said, drive like you normally drive, and pretend I'm not even here. It went smooth as could be.

    Is the pretrip inspection as strict as dot test?

    If you want to be a Walmart driver you should know how to pretrip a truck and not worry about it.

    Doing a pretrip and saying the correct terminology are two seperate things.

    8,000 drivers are with the fleet today. Do it as you do every day (that's if you do pretrips since most don't) and you should be ok.

    Well, im not most people. I do my pretrips correctly, but just hate to leave out specific terms such as bent, broken, or cracked etc....not used to saying it out loud. Thats why i asked.
