Don't sweat it Larry, you'll get it.

You have to pass one section before you can move on to the next. So you must pass pretrip before you can move on to the backing tests. Then you must pass the backing before you can move on to the road test.

I passed my first try. The problem with weekend classes is that there isn't enough repetition for it stick, in my opinion.

From what I understand you fail a part of the test and you're done. First is pretrip, then it's skills then driving. If you fail pretrip you don't go on to skills. If you fail skills you're not going out on the road.

Good luck good-luck.gif

Yep me too tomorrow (Thursday 25th) Finally going to DMV in Fontana to test. Driving is more on my mind, since we didn't get too much road time! Owner "thinks" 3-4 times out is enough (30-45 minutes each??)lol Did good freeway going down and back up I-15s Cajon Pass, I only light tapped brake 3 times keep my safe space good. The double clutching kicking my butt easier to float em haha

Got air brakes and in-cab down pretty much, all outside inspections easiest thing (having been a diesel mech before) Gunna be cool calm relaxed, andgive it my best shot. May Trucking is on hold once I got the license in hand ! past 2 days been nailing the parallels right or left, ran bout 15 each side today to nail em down better ! our test alley dock slot is bit smaller, and the box is 2 foot deep not 3 like DMVs so we get it down at school, DMV's should be bit easier......

Off to bed,,, I test 7 am when dmv opens, hopefully examiners in a good mood,, whoever I get,, not all hot, sweaty n pizzed off because its late in the day hahaha. Think they (dmv) have gotten lil fed up with this school sending down "testers" , not drivers..........

Double Clutch:

To engage and then disengage the clutch twice for every gear change.

When double clutching you will push in the clutch, take the gearshift out of gear, release the clutch, press the clutch in again, shift the gearshift into the next gear, then release the clutch.

This is done on standard transmissions which do not have synchronizers in them, like those found in almost all Class A trucks.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

Good luck to both of you guys. Just act like that examiner isn't there and do your thing. Talk to yourself if you have to.
