Failed skills test, now I need a truck!

I'm interested in this. My school burned through one of my free exam dates because I had a medical issue. I have one more test set up but in MA it's notoriously difficult to pass the test, and I fear I will end up having to pay then $350 to retake if I fail my 1st try.

I was in school and took my skills test at the end of the course, I messed up on my air brakes and failed.

Now I have a CDL-A learners permit, a bunch of endorsements, plus money paid to tsa for a background check, a certificate and some college credits and a bunch of money paid out and no cdl-a.

I have no access to a tractor-trailer and my school is shut down until may. I can wait and pay them $95 an hour, but I really don't want to wait 4+ months, with no driving practice and go in to test being unprepared.

I live in very rural northern Vermont, this is not a major trucking hub.

Does anyone have any ideas for me about finding a truck.

I have put a note up at work (corner store, with lots of traffic)

I have posted the following on Facebook:

"I'm looking for someone who has a tractor-trailer and has their CDL-A and would be willing to let me use their truck for my road skills test in St Johnsbury.

I have had my CDL-A permit since September and have doubles-triples and tanker endorsements.

Please let me know if you can and how much you would need in compensation."

My brother said if I could get a truck he'd take me, since he has his cdl-a, but he works for a mega-carrier so using their truck is out of the question.
