6 months of school, all instructors say I'm a natural, I nailed my pretrip and parallel parking, perfect turns, flawless upshifts and down shifts, and then it happened....

I come to a red light, this guy backed up like he put it in reverse instead of drive when the light turned green. I slammed on my horn so he'd wake up. so he moves forward and turns, I wait a second to let him move a bit more. all of a sudden this car from the left lane cuts in front of me to turn right again I stop, I just happened to see him from mirror on the corner of my eye. Light turns red the examiner says it was a dangerous action.... I'm told her I know right whats going on with these people....

It was the very last intersection to the road test site. When I parked I found out she really ment I did a dangerous action among 16 other things all of which happened between that intersection and the parking lot. I just want to cry and beat that woman at the same time.

Hang in there! Many people have to retest although few will admit it.' You'll get it next time!


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.
