Week 1. Just like most of those people here. I spent most of the week in class (started at 6 a.m. ended at 6pm) preparing to take my CDL permit test which I passed on the first time. I was provided with housing but no mealsthere's definitely no babysitting going on here I feel the school is definitely set up really want this. I'll do my best to keep you guys posted to have a three-day weekend I'll be back bright and early 6 a.m. on Tuesday try to keep you guys posted. If anyone has any questions feel free to give me a shout this site really help me out the CDL training program on here made taking my permit test a breeze.

Good luck. Just remember you have a goal, and you are on a long interview. Keep your goal in mind, and work hard.

Okay so it's been awhile since I've posted anything I know a little about owner of a CDL license I passed the first time no issue. Week 2 two mostly consisted of learning backing maneuvers and going over pre-trip religiously. Starting with straight backs then learning angle bags finally we did offsets had lots of practice and time in the truck. Week 3 first thing in the morning we go out on the road and start driving and we did that every morning or afternoon. We were outside in all types of weather because that's how the job would be . Make sure you bring something to put lots of water and if you're in Florida you going to need it. I can't say enough about the amount of time I had in the truck.After the first week they split each class in half in the third week they split it in half again and the instructors make sure you get everything. I'm about to hop on a Greyhound headed to Dallas for orientation. Any questions you have some for your ask.
