Ask if you can test out in a CFI truck. If not you won't have a manual restriction. You also get 3 shots on each portion of the test. Pass each section and not have to repeat it.

Relax and good luck

My valves also I'm doing my pre test road test and she put in the comments that I was having road rage!? Because a car cut me off and I uttered this mother f*cker and she also put in the comments that I was using faul language constantly.

When I was in school they made it clear, donot to show any emotion towards what other people do on the road. The examiners are going to think, "if he is like this on his road test, how will he be once he is on his own?" If you let one guy cutting you off get under your skin that much it shows them you might loose your cool and start driving aggressively.

What did you struggle with on your valves?

Sorry to hear you where cut, but there are other companies that will probably offer you a shot, just learn from this and try again!

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Failed my in cab (valves)

That's too vague. The air brake test allows for little slack.

If you got the valves mixed up/confused, that happens. I tell my students to start with the RED VALVE. While you press the red valve in, look at the yellow one, read the name on it and say "I'm testing my PARKING BRAKES.

Then pull the red one out, press the YELLOW VALVE. While you press the yellow one valve in, look at the red one, read the name on it and say "I'm testing my TRAILER BRAKES.

For the servings brake they must both be pushed in.

When you push in the red valve you cover it's name. But you can see and read the name on the other one. That is actually the cake you are testing.

I'm really sorry to hear this, man. In Cab IS HARD, but .. as Errol stated, your misconception/confusion was a little vague. I don't purport to know much, but then again I've got a truck in my yard a few times a week (for 5 years) that I practice on; same truck...too; probably helps.

If you are still 'wanting' to go further with being a driver, I've helped a few 'down on luck' folks with a suggestion, here in Ohio:

Dutch Maid Logistics

Luc (just talked to him today) met my husband at Pepperidge Farms, right beside the DML barn...has been w/them 2 years; nobody else would take him.

Optical (member on here) ended up with DML after other issues; look up his posts!

Marc Lee ... after 3 other No Go companies (fails) ended up with DML, as well.

They may even be partnering with TT in the future!

All I got, man. If you want it, don't quit.

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.
