I have not posted anything until I was sure I passed.

I passed my road test and skills test with Wolding so as of Thursday I will officially be a driver rather than a trainee. Hopefully I get a decent truck.

Thanks guys.

One of the first turns is a left and you have to go between two islands, and cut into the right turn lane for opposing traffic to clear a traffic light pole on the center island. I missed the islands on both sides by about an inch.

Yesterday I had to do a 90 degree back between two trailers with limited space in front. It is the one Patrick and I explained the pace counting method elsewhere.

They had to move it because the yard flooded and that test was solid ice. They swear it is the same distance but I think the space in front was about a foot shorter I failed it yesterday. They let me practice a few times this morning and I nailed it.
