When I "made the decision to" realized my career change included obtaining my CDL -A license, I researched schools, checked on hiring companies, talked to people in the field ( other career drivers), and began the High Road online CDL prep testing. I then made payment to Heavy Metal Truck Driving School in Inver Grove Heights, MN and gave 3 weeks notice to my current employer....Whew...So much to coordinate... This is where the story gets good. I did not realize I needed my CDL permit ( Gen Knw ) (Comb) ( AB ) and a DOT physical to start school next Monday! The physical was easy.. and THANKS to YOU my permit was a breeze I SCORED 100% ON AIR BRAKES ! just last Wednesday... The real world of school starts 5-6-2012 and my NEW JOB ! (conditional employment** safety* and road training** )starts the begining of June. Thanks again for this forum. I will be in touch.

I agree with you on the High Road program. If I hadn't stumbled upon this website I don't think I'd be doing nearly as well as I am. The High Road program is making this studying stuff a breeze. I plan to take my permit exams in about two weeks and I'm totally confident that I'm going to blow them out of the water. :)

The High Road has been fantastic for me as well. I hardly had to read the huge JJ Keller book they gave us at school because I had already did the same stuff on the High Road program. We get quizzed on the JJ Keller book and it's been a breeze. Can't thank Brett enough!
