The funniest two I found were - "How do you judge your following distance?" with one of the answers being "Send a text message to a friend while driving and see how long it takes him to reply"

"How does excessive alcohol consumption affect your ability to drive?" A) Increased Reaction time, b) the ability to see more clearly how alcohol affects your judgement C) You are a more alert, safe driver D) it impairs your judgement and reaction time........

how many bets at least 1 or 2 people have chosen A to C for the second one?


You mean I'm not supposed to check my oil or fuel level using a match/ lighter?wtf.gif


The one I remember off hand was

Which of these do not apply to stopping distance? A. Perception dist, B. reaction dist. C. Throwing dist. D. Braking dist.

You get that one wrong they should take your regular license away!

Nothing wrong with a one year.

In almost 1/2 that time I was able to eliminate the item which led to mine. (OK, I have had a few Fed. Med. Cards / Certs. but about 6 months from the last one I lost about 40#, (total of 50 in 8 months) and no longer take insulin). Looking forward to getting a 2 year next time around!

But one year works! (I started CDL school with a WI State Intrastate waiver. Feds changed the rules while I was in school).

You never know how these things will go!

Just keep doing what you need to do. Things seem to have a way of working themselves out!
