How to ensure to be “LATE” at the alley dock?

Roberto, welcome to our forum!

Your instructor is giving you some basic outline or steps that will enable you to pass the test - that's it. Don't try to analyze it or overthink it. For now just try to follow directions and get past the test.

Once you get out on your own you'll develop your own methods and practices. I never even think about looking at my landing gear when backing. All that is for is a reference point to help you do what's required for your test.

Thanks guys, I see the whole pucture now

How to ensure to be “LATE” at the alley dock?

Hello everyone, I got a question, this is for the alley dock , 90 degree backing test to get the CDL -A license.

I am learning how to do the 90 degree backing alley dock test

And the intructor told us that after to make your first right, you back and stop at the middle of the “K” at the bottom of the landing gear., then you start backing up to your cones... well the question is, at this point, what would happen if we dont stop at the “middle” of the bottom of the “K”, intstrad, we stop a little to the right of the “K”, or a little to to the left of the “K”... which one ofthese positions are best suited to ensure that the trailer will be always “late”?... (so we can make a hard right clise to the drivers side cone, the the subsequent left to put the trauck behind the trailer?
