May Trucking Skills Test for new CDL applicants?

Looking for anyone who has recently completed or has info on what May Trucking in Florida has as far as Skills Testing. I have a brand new CDL and I have not driven for over a week now. Do you get to practice? What if I have never done a maneuver they require? How difficult is it for a newbie to successfully complete the skills test? I am good driving, straight back, offset and sharp R hand turns. Was not been taught how to alley dock in my CDL class or test. Do you test in order to get hired or do you test after you get some training?

HIGH ROAD TRAINING

I agree! High Road Training got me easily through my CDL permit testing. Great site and a very easy way to study on the go! Thanks Brett!

Is trucking worth it anymore?

This is a 2nd career for my husband and I. We always dreamed of getting the kids through school and hitting the road and now that dream is one week away from becoming reality. My husband and I are very used to hard work, he was a firefighter for 24 years and I was a trauma nurse for 18 years. We have read a multitude of posts on trucker sites that made us leary of working for any company, it seems that all the companies have its share of haters. We have kept coming back to TT as it seemed to have fair and honest posts and the moderators step right in and give great advice on how much weight we should be giving the negative posts and the best advice we kept reading on TT was that if you work hard and do a good job you will succeed in this business. My husband and I are from the background of working hard and expecting nothing in return, sometimes you just worked hard because it was the right thing to do and we are not afraid of long shifts, physical labor and stressful situations. Communication has been the cornerstone of our first careers and if you need clarification.....ask.

We just want to pass on a huge thank you to ALL of you who have participated in this incredible truckers site. We filled out over 47 applications and did hours of research and asking questions about the companies who would talk to us. You have to really do your homework, nothing in this industry is going to be given to you. We remember someone on here stating that you shouldn't judge the company based on the attitude of the recruiter and we passed up some of the companies because that aggressive recruiter was working harder for the driver than the company was, again you have to do your homework.

So, a week from tomorrow my husband will be starting his 3 day refresher course and then head off with his trainer for 4-6 weeks. I plan on joining him on the road with our dog after the first of the year. I will spend that time learning and experiencing being in a truck until I feel confident enough to go to CDL school then after all my training is completed I will join my husband. I am not one to be done with the training and walk away going Oh Well......., I will be the one going Hey, I need some more practice on backing etc. I don't think any company worth its salt would agree with a trainer that turned me down for more practice on something I feel I'm not ready to do on my own.

Again, thank you so much TT for the honest, balanced and positive information. We Will keep reading while out on the road!
