Congrats and good luck. I don't think it can be preached enough the High Road Training Program will get you there. I took most of it and passed all 4 test prime required of me in one try. Be ready to hurry up at wait your class maybe smaller then mine so it may be a little easier on you but it is worth it to be patient with everyone they are working hard and fast to get you done.

Again congrats and good luck

Glad to hear it is working out for you. Go through the High Road Training Program, It will help you more than anything - and regardless of what your recruiter tells you, it will be a big benefit for you to go ahead and get your permit before you leave for Prime.

I can't agree more. Mikey has a good point about taking the high road program. Study, study and study some more. If at all possible get your permit before you get here because they will not have a class to prep you for the exam. That is all on you and you will already have enough stress with everything else that is going to happen here. Not to scare you but it's the truth. I have seen it for the last two days where some of these folks are now behind or struggling and that is unfortunate. When you get here you need to be a sponge, listen and know the whole process is an interview. And most of all do not be late for anything. When in doubt ask a question. The instructors are very helpful but you are expected to execute all the tasks they assign you. This is a clear demonstration you can take care of yourself and problem solve. This key to being a successful trucker. Good luck to you and look forward to hearing your story.
