LOL, I am only worried abut getting nervous and forgetting something stupid, especially on the brake test. Or bumping a curb, though I have been on some pretty sharp narrow turns and haven't yet. Some I cleared by inches.

Thanks, JoAnne, Brian, Old School, and PackRat.

And yes, Old School, it is very real now. I will get home from School Tuesday, and leave again on Sunday.

Brian, I have a diary going for Sage CDL school, at least the driving range part, the first part wasn't even worth mentioning. If I have time, I definitely plan to do a diary. I can do the Sage classroom part right here. Read through a book on the same stuff I studied here, watched some videos, took a test, and BSed a LOT. I think the only reason the classroom part exists is to satisfy regulations, since you have to already have your permit for Sage.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • 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.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.
