Good luck to all of you. If there's something you don't understand while in the truck... ask. This was especially important during backing exercises. There are a lot of things I didn't understand during my CDL School. Maybe it was the instructors, but I just didn't get most of the backing right away... it took a fellow student to explain to the point I understood it. Mind you just enough to pass my CDL then you get on the road and it's a whole nother story. Look forward continue reading your diary.

CDL:

  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.

Thank you, JYD. We are in hurry up and wait in line mode. But it’s cool. Very nice people, sharing experiences and jokes. That makes it not too bad.

Kim H. are you here? I wasn’t really paying attention to names during roll call. I really hope you didn’t turn around and go back home. Shoot me a text to 304-553-2232 when you get a chance and you, Donna, and I can meet up. I haven’t seenher yet today but she’s still around.
