Aaaaaaaaand... I failed.

Ahh man sorry to hear that. Don't beat yourself over this. Like Old School said in the grand scheme of things one day you will look back and see this was just a small misstep. It happens sometimes, nerves get the best of you and you mess up. That is human nature. Just refocus , keep practicing and before you retest take deep breaths, stay calm, use the time allotted and think it through and you will nail this.

Don’t worry guys. I’ve hit the pad hard for the last 2 1/2 days. I took an hour to sulk and cuss after I failed, slapped myself in the face, and got back at it. I’m not the kind to lay down. Besides, if I quit I have to ride the greyhound back to Florida, and I’ll never do that again.

Passing the test is a much better alternative to riding the Grey Dog home!

I’ll take my chances hitchhiking first. It’s safer.

Totally agree. After my super long Greyhound ride going to Prime and lack of sleep I nearly failed the blood pressure part of my DOT physical the next morning and mine is usually perfect. Never again will I endure that if I can help it.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Aaaaaaaand... Failed again. Got the backing this time, failed on the road test. I take my turns too wide and I had a traffic light turn yellow on me in no mans land. I chose poorly and got on the binders hard. Ever since I got back I’ve been asking any trainer I come across if they want to go for a ride. One took me up on it, he said I did great. Already back to playing “Hey, mister”. “Hey, mister, wanna go for a ride?” Retest on Wednesday. I’ll be ready.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
