It’s monday at prime around 5:00 we will sit around the smoking area and watch those frustrated first day students not to make fun cause not one of us haven’t been there.. it’s a tough day but you will make it through it. Tomorrow it’s roll call and get your butt on that green shuttle and go to the dmv office take the test, don’t pass take it again, still don’t pass get back here and study back at it tomorrow. This is just the first week ... no one is going to “give” it to you. However if you put in as much work as Prime gives you opportunities for ...you will reach your goal.

#1 If your not 100% sure of the answer, slip it, it'll come back around

#2 Although it's possible to get 100% of the questions you answered correct? You need only score 80% to pass. Just to keep it simple and nor turn this into a math class, your objective should be to.just pass, even it's with just 80% total.

Once you've done so? The test is over and you're compelled to move on to the next section.

Or until you've passed or failed all four sections (Or more if your taking additional parts above the basic four parts)

Make SURE you take your old license from your home state, birth certificate etc.

As SOON as you pass? GO TO THE SECOMD FLOOE TO GET YOUR PERMIT. Be prepared to pay the $66 or so her. DO THIS BEFORE leaving the DMV

You could take the city bus for $1.25 Or $1.50. It's No. # 2 or 5. It's on the white board in C4 or you could ask Ms. Virginia.

Uber is an option. I heard one of my fellow students say it cost them $12 one way

Taxi was $22 one way

If you take the Green Shuttle try and be on the 1st one out at 6 am

You may want to take the city bus back to the Campus Inn otherwise it could be a bit of a wait, waiting for the shuttle to come back

Ask around, as things might hav4 changed SINCE I was there a couple of weeks ago, (I'm out on TNT training at present)

Best of luck

TNT:

Trainer-N-Trainee

Prime Inc has their own CDL training program and it's divided into two phases - PSD and TNT.

The PSD (Prime Student Driver) phase is where you'll get your permit and then go on the road for 10,000 miles with a trainer. When you come back you'll get your CDL license and enter the TNT phase.

The TNT phase is the second phase of training where you'll go on the road with an experienced driver for 30,000 miles of team driving. You'll receive 14¢ per mile ($700 per week guaranteed) during this phase. Once you're finished with TNT training you will be assigned a truck to run solo.

Donna has been a Godsend since I’ve been here. Even today she helped me with my iPad and getting the CBT’s to load and actually work. She has been a fountain of very useful information for navigating Campus Inn.

Thank you Donna! I am going to miss you when you leave on Thursday! 😞
