    I spoke to one of my buddies in school now and he said that there were two students who were still in their 5th week who haven't passed pre-trip, 4 pt, road, and range. It's bad because I remember them from when I was in school. Yeah they are not really cut out to be drivers. I know it's a lot to be thrown upon you in a short amount of time but come on 5 weeks.:biggrin_25513:

    Sad part is, which everyone knows......school is just enough to get your CDL. What are these guys gonna do when they get in the real world? Most guys were worried sick about getting an alley dock at the CDL test because they couldn't get it in the box. I promptly asked them...."what are you gonna do when you get out on the road and can't back into a dock?"

    edit to add.....

    There were a couple guys testing(their 3rd week) when I started school on the 6th....and finally passed on the 24th with me.

    Good luck to you!

    Pay attention, ask questions.....remember the only dumb question is the one not asked!

    If you are confused or just flat don't understand something....ASK UNTIL YOU DO!

    I think you already are one of those crusty, crabby old guys :biggrin_2559: jk
    I know what you mean, I got my call too...my trainer expects to be here tomorrow between 9am-12pm. He would have been here today but between getting unloaded and then reloaded it wasn't meant to be.
    My trainer sounds like a real cool, down to earth guy with lots of years experience.

    Interesting. My guy said he's been with PAM 15 yrs. He's coming from NY, picking me up and we're headed to Laredo.

    aka120, I feel like one of the crusty, crabby old guys every morning, LOL. Come to think of it, I'll turn 40 this year.:biggrin_25523:
