CDL school, what's good, what's not

PS I also want to make sure you understand that I'm not trying to bash my school, my instructors, etc. I am learning with them. They've been good to me.

I just want to be clear....I am not trying to mislead or confuse any other member on here with my post....I was merely asking the question, to see what others have as experience going to private school, and actually see if the way it's done, is the norm. I do understand that the real experience will come driving for a company....and I also understand it will take time, stressful situations, challenges, scares, errors, *try again*, keep going....breathe. I do have a perfectionist personality. Sometimes it plays against me, I'm well aware of that....because it plays with my patience. I just want to do everything right...

Yes....I am in there for 10 weeks, on the weekends, from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.....half hour of driving per day seems very little.

Now don't get me wrong, I like my instructors. But my concern is that I will not be ready after 10 weekends to take my road test. My concern is getting all the road time I should be getting for the amount of money I put into it. The "recruiter" who got me to sign up for the classes even told me that even tho the course is 10 weeks on weekends, that most students need a couple weeks more. I wonder why....maybe that's because most of the students don't get the time they need on the road and not enough practice doing maneuvers.

PS I forgot to add, we get about 30 minutes of driving time once a day, therefor twice in one weekend. 1 hour total approximate.

Passed my CDL, trucking school on Mon!!!

A "CDL" is the actual commercial driving license....which allows you to get a job, get paid and drive a truck.

You passed your PERMIT written exam, not your CDL. if you had "passed your CDL", you wouldn't be on your way to trucking school, you'd be on your way to orientation and training, to work for a specific company. :)

I'm gathering that you passed your permit exams.. congratulations.

That's what I was thinking as well...lol

You passed your permit test at the DMV, you mean? if you're on your way to "tucking school", you can't have your CDL already..?

When you pay $5000 for CDL school, what do you consider acceptable as far as how many students per truck/per trainer, how many times you get to go out to drive on the road, often times short on trainers (therefor ending up with one or two trainers having to split themselves up), students from previous classes who show up to hog the trucks because "I'm testing out tomorrow and need practice", leaving you and the other two students standing there waiting to start practicing....I mean, we paid a lot of money to attend classes, the trucks and instructors should be available to our class, no?

Our group only goes on the weekends because we all have jobs or other obligations. Going 5 days in between is already enough time that went by, sometimes it makes it a bit difficult to remember what you've learned the weekend before. There's an average of 3-4 students per truck already. We take turns.

Just curious.
