I have been on here a lot the last month reading & general lurking about. So, much information

was a giant help. Graduated the 22nd tested the 26th passed pre-trip & maneuvers no problem.

Got half way through my road test & was pulling out from a light & noticed a couple on side of

the road ahead near the next light. Wondering what they might do I forgot what I was doing missed

a shift panic & failed to recover in a safe amount of time. I went back to my school & they let

me go back out for an hour of extra training on the road. Regrouped my confidence & practiced

recovering. Passed my test today with flying colors. Turns out we fail our selves. All good


Had a letter of Conditional Offer of Employment from Garner Transportation. Followed up on

that already. So, maybe Monday I'll start my new life.

Thanks a bunch for all the great information & positive attitude that offers so much support.

Be safe not sorry,
