My journey began with the Tampa Drivers School back in March. For those that can, takes three weeks or so. Took me six weeks because I'm a klutz.

Then on to Trans Am and left after three days of orientation. Very bad experience at least having to do with me. So, speaking for me, very bad experience.

Began orientation with CFI about five/six weeks ago . About 14,000 miles driven with a trainer (CFI calls it a "Finisher") Very-very valuable time and miles spent. I cant speak highly enough of CFI. Great company and they put alot of time, energy and budget into new drivers. A very professional company that displays a high degree of driver satisfaction. A very friendly and helpful spirit and they spend the time and money on new drivers.

Passed all my final tests with CFI Today. Written test, then the 'Obstacle Course", and miles with a CFI designated manager to ensure the new driver is ready for the road, solo.

AND.........I have my own truck as of a couple hours ago.

So, I have a red KW with a couple hundred thousand miles on it, clean as a pin and road ready with I think a pretty well trained as possible new driver.

Been a journey with some anxiety and some doubts and frayed nerves however here I is ......................

BTW.......BIG SCOTT.....I was behind you leaving Joplin on Labor Day. You turned left, I went right. Looking forward to meeting you.
