Struggling in my 3rd week of Swift driving academy

Upshift. about 1500rpms then clutch in about 2 inches. nuetral, then clutch 2 inches gear. down. let the truck slow to about 1k rpm. clutch in 2" then out when in nuetral. give the go pedal a flip to get rpms to 1300, clutch in 2 inches then gear.

when you go to 5th and know your going to 6th+ pre switch to high range. same for when in 6th and you know your going down.

if you push the clutch in farther then the 2- inch mark your getting into the clutch brake and that could be a some of your grindings.

it takes a couple days but you should easily have it by sat.

Company vs Paying for your own Cdl

I chose to pay mine on my own. opens up many more companies and options. and no contracts. and most still have monthly tuition reimbursements.
