CDL training at CRST, Cedar Rapids, IA

First day was Dec 7, 2015. Arrived Sunday night got bed in 3 bed room. The other two guys had their cdl's and one of them had been driving solo for 7 years. TV in lounge off at 2300, no food allowed in rooms over 250 people in my CDL A permit class. Getting up at 0400 since breakfast(cereal &toast is at 0430).

Monday- Started class, 10 people out of 250 had driven a standard transmission. Class not bad and instructor was entertaining and knowledgeable. Class from 0700-1630. That night my drivin solo roommate left in the middle of the night with many explicatives , he thought he was going to be drivin in 2 days yet the orientation is 4 days, this was his 10th company in 8 years.

More classroom on Tuesday, same hours. probably 1/4 of class gone already.

Testing on Wednesday with DMV. Passed easily missed 2 on general knowledge and aced combo and air-brake-Thanks Trucking Truth for the CDL practice it really helped and I strongly recommend that anyone who wants to pass first time do it, the repetition makes it a no-brainer.

goin to driving school in waterloo, ia. You do good CRST will treat you right , no complaints so far, take the initiative, get endorsements on your own, and they will take care of you

Can't wait to drive.
