Angie C.'s Bio

When my papermill shut down, I was afforded the opportunity to pursue a new career. I've always wanted my class A and have received a grant for training. I started classes 4/3 and started yard driving last week.

Frustrations of training

I recently started training, April 3 I had my first class and just last week the class started range driving. We get about an hour- though between demonstrations and explanations, it really probably is only actually 30- 40 minutes of practice. For as long as I can remember I've wanted my CDL, I'm acing all the quizzes in classwork and studying hard for the permit- I go next Friday.

I felt I was progressing with driving. We are on parallel parking and I've struggle quite a bit, I don't feel more or less than then the majority of the class. Today the head instructor flat out told me I was "wasting my time." I quite honestly am flabbergasted. I had just had 3 near perfect parks in a row before he came out to the yard. When he came out I had a bad backup and turned too soon, hitting a cone with the driver's steer wheel. Then my time was up for today.

I've consistently shift gears well and can back up straight. Before last week I had never sat in the drivers seat of a TT, let alone driven one.

I'm not going to give up and feel like him comment was really unwarranted.

Regardless, has anyone dealt with a trainer that you butt heads with and how did you through it?
