Good luck Michelle and great attitude!! Of i remember correctly, Turtle took his test in the pouring rain, so yes, best to be prepared.
Glad you made it safe and sound. Good luck.
Sorry I have been too busy to update. I'm on day 7 of training. Let me tell you that I have never before been behind the wheel of a big truck. I have learned straight back, off set (left and right), parallel (left and right), and am now on my second day driving with an instructor. I have spent every night going over my pre trip. I have about 3/4 of it down pat. This school is exactly what you make of it. I came here to learn and i'm doing that. Love it so far.

Sorry I haven't been updating here. I have been training and studying and it's paid off. I took my cdl test and passed it wednesday. Went to orientation Wednesday afternoon and was transferred to a different hotel on Thursday. I'm now waiting for a trainer to start phase one. I'm proud to be one of the few who passed their first time. I'm also excited to get on the road.
A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:
Great news. Congratulations! I'm assuming your original roomie is long gone by now, doubt she made it past the UA!
It sounds like you are doing really well. Keep it up, and we would love to hear some progress reports along your way.

I took a bus from nc to burns harbor Indiana. His ride took 48hrs with layovers. Never again. Once I arrived at the motel, which is the bus stop, they assigned me a room.
I thought ok I can handle this for a couple weeks. Then my roommate came in from school. She started drinking and smoking in the room which are both against the rules. Long story short I changed things the next day. My first day at the school just consisted of signing all the paperwork and drug test. I already have my permit so we just had to wait to start the class. Day two..... We get on the bus to class at 6am. Basic classroom stuff. Went over rules of the range. Power points on backing and pre trip inspection. Glad completed about 4:30 pm .Tomorrow we are starting on the range. It's supposed to snow. At least if it does I'll already be a step ahead of the drivers who don't know how to drive in the snow. I can say I learned in the snow.... lol. I'll try to update after class tomorrow.
