    Right on BigKahuna! My advice for your driving test is to relax relax relax and trust your training. Me and most of my classmates let our nerves get to us to much. That and the California Governator has put all state employees on minimum wage till they solve the budget crisis. Doesn't make for real happy DMV testers here.

    Thanks jash369. That also sounds like great advice. One of the comments I got after completing my road test was that I was going to slow in the turns. I thought to myself you are kidding me right? I told the tester I was trained to let the momentum of the truck carry me through the turns until my trailer tires cleared the curb then give it the accelerator and go.

    Way to go, Hogster!
    We never had any doubt that you'd make it.


    I heard Arnold laid off the elevator operators in the State Capitol.
    Can you imagine the hardship?

    So now the State's workers are receiving poverty wages?
    YeAH!
    I bet that DOES affect their attitudes, which at the DMV aren't all that great to begin with. :biggrin_25512:
