Started school

Hey everybody,

I started school last week in Wisconsin at Fox Valley Tech. I'm very impressed with the school so far and am enjoying it very much. Had a rough time earlier in the week with down shifting a 10 speed (UGH!!!). That shot of fuel between double clutching was killing me!! But, eventually, everything started to fall into place. Pulled a trailer around today and that went well (I've had yard truck experience, which helped). Next week we work on backing and possibly hitting the streets. Overall I'm very happy with how things are going and the instructors are awesome!

More to come........

Endorsements

Thanks everybody! The High road training here certainly taught me a lot in order to get my permit and now I'll study for the endorsements as well!

Endorsements

Is it common to get your Hazmat, Doubles/Triples and Tanker endorsements before even going to school? Also, I went for a visit to the school I'll be attending and I noticed a lot of people practice driving with trailers but I didn't see any doubles. Do schools generally teach driving doubles/triples and the procedures with dollys etc.? Thanks
