Oh ok yeah then you'll need that practice you signed up for. Since it's not a DOT road test just a company road test they won't mind if you float gears if that ends up being easier for you but you will have to learn how to match the road speed and rpms just right since it's a different animal in a non-synchronized tranny.

Let us know how it goes

Sorry if this is an ignorant comment lol, but was the 6 speed you tested in a non-synchronized transmission? (i.e. did you have to double clutch in it?) The shift patterns aren't that hard to learn and the main difference is going to be that you won't let the rpms drop as much between shifts in the 10 speed since there are more gears. As long as you already know how to double clutch or float gears it shouldn't be hard to adjust.

No I didn’t double clutch

They are not the same. I’d cram by looking at You Tube videos on shifting a manual 10-speed.

Went for an interview today and their tractor is a 10 speed. I only drove 6 speeds and they wanna do a road test with me tomorrow. Should I be concerned?

I’ve been watching and actually scheduled some lessons at the end of this month. I know the theory behind it but haven’t actually drove one. I’m just going to go in confident.

Did you let them know you haven't driven a 10 speed before? They may be more lenient if you let them know your only experience was a 6 speed. You demonstrated to the state you can operate a manual its just a matter of learning the shifting pattern for the 10 speed. Easiest way is for your higher gears add the digits together (15 mph is 6th, 25 is 7th etc.) It may not be perfect but it's close enough to give you a ball park range. When I attended school learning on a 10 speed we started in 4th gear and came to a stop in 6th. Of course the higher you start the easier it is to stall. Some drivers prefer to start out in 1st gear even empty it just gets trickier in my opinion because the speed for each gear is so close.

They didn’t ask but when he was showing me around I quickly glanced at the truck behind his back to see. I pretty much know the theory behind 10 speeds but haven’t actually drove one. Maybe he’ll teach me since he said most of the time I’m going to be driving automatic straight trucks

Thanks I appreciate it, I applied to some. If you thought $25/hr starting was bad, why did you send me jobs that pays less?🤣

double-quotes-end.png

Mainly just to show you what else was out there. Also some were state jobs or union jobs or maybe just better benefits. Unions are big in NY.

Yea…i appreciate that though…you didn’t have to

Do you think at least $25/hr is appropriate for someone with no experience in Long Island, ny?

Yup. As long as you lived in a van down by the river.

Alluding to 'Patches?' Or John Ludwig? Or Presence? LoLoL...

Seriously, Hasani; I was born in L.I./NY ... well, born in Queens, and raised in East Meadow. Nassau County.

That's not really a 'bad' starting rate. I asked around. With experience (aka; if you stay 6 months & up,) you'll be making $35 to $50 per, or at least have the opportunity to.

Having your CDLA is a great bargaining tool, for starters. We wish you luck; let us know how it turns out. It's a job that somebody sure DOES have to do!!

My two cents,

Lol Ok I get it, what you think I should ask for since I have no experience? I’m thinking after I do their little road test to show them I can drive, ima ask for $30

New cdl federal requirement

When you took the test didn't they give you a paper to take to the DMV? Even though the scores are recorded electronically, that paper says you only have 30 days. Perhaps it is because my company tests out of state drivers so if you test within the state perhaps you don't so that.

Again... Go ask the DMV.

I got it today

I’m going there Monday but no, they didn’t give me any paper just a card for the website to see the results
