I wanted to share something that just made me pat myself on the back today... I am currently attending the FFE Driving Academy (Now KLLM). Today was our final written exam for the school, tomorrow we go take the DPS written tests. Once the class tests were graded, our instructor told me that in the more than two years the school had been open and with all the hundreds of students that had gone through the program, I was the third person EVER to get a perfect score on all 5 written exams.


Darn right I'm proud of myself, but I didn't do it alone. I can't express enough how helpful The High Road training program is, and can't thank Brett and TruckingTruth enough for putting it together.

Anyway, like I said, just wanted to pat myself on the back a bit :-) I'm so glad to know that I shouldn't have anything to worry about tomorrow at DPS.

That's awesome!! You will definitely be an asset to any company on the road! It just goes to show that the proper training course can go a long way. Did you have to put in long hours studying or did it just come naturally?

I am a big fan of TT as well. I am glad it was here for me when I starting thinking about trucking as a career, and glad it is still here as I grow as a truck driver.

Thanks everyone! Jon, I put in a lot of time studying with The High Road in the 2 months before school, and due to that it was pretty natural.

And just to add on, we went to DPS today and I passed all 5 tests, with a perfect score on 3 of them. Now I can finally start learning how to drive a truck!
