Well I took the test and passed with ease... Thanks for all the advice I actually went overboard on the head checks. I wore a ball cap called every intersection and train track out loud and leaned forward a bit putting some shoulder into my right and left glancing. A bit awkward in real life but it was a test and it all worked out great!!!! I also kept the truck centered much better this time around where as before I drifted over the fog lane... Today I will read up on companies and contact one or two to see where I stand in the real world at this time... Thanks again everyone.

Thanks, I havent but I will look at it soon. For now I am just being selective as Id like to do flatbed and I have a dog Id like to take with me. Might slow me down a bit to start but I think I'll be able to find a good fit in the end =)
