I officially start Schneider ground school tomorrow at 9:45 am but got a little bit of a 50min drive and because I want to be early I will be leaving at 8am.

I am both excited and nervous. Questions: What can I expect on my first day? Any tips for getting overwhelmed? I am just starting ground school so don't think there's anything like loads with experienced driver but I heard that when those start they can be really stressful. Any tips for when those start? Also what should I expect to learn during ground school? What will I be doing?

Howdy again, D/E !!!

This question would be much better answered in the 'General' forum, as everyone breezes by there, not so much here in the diaries unless they are LOOKING for comparative information. You can just copy and paste the body of this post, starting a new thread in General; and leave this one here as well, for you updating as YOU find these things out yourself, and are able to share with other newbies coming into the forum.

For now, here are some threads that may answer a few questions in the meantime:

Best wishes to you, for tomorrow; hopefully you can get this reposted in the General soon, to garner more replies before you head out. Stop back in HERE after class tomorrow, and let us know!!

Haya, D/E !!

Now that you ARE officially in school/training...it'd be GREAT if you'd keep some sort of a daily (or weekly?) log here, in the diaries section..for the future TT'ers looking to choose Schneider.

Voluntary, of course; just Brett's intended way for folks to 'Pay it Forward' ... and those curious and still choosy, like me..haha!

Thanks, hope all is still great!
