Going to get my CDL!
Well..my mum brought me home the manual since she was up near the DMV and I'm overly excited..lol.
She's looking into multiple local construction vehicle (water/cement truck) positions she has influence to get me into. While I can't say I always like her, I do love her for supporting (and judging...lol) everything I do and help me out whenever she can. She refuses to let me sign a contract with a truck company for out of state driving, but she's going to pay for all my cdl stuff as long as I promise not to do that, which is fine by me.
I'm going to be up all night reading this manual..and then all tomorrow before work, lol.
Soo..anyone have any tips or such? Or know where I can rent the semi to take the test in? I'm going to see if Heather or Ralph will teach me how to drive a manual in one of their trucks so I know manual and automatic..if not though, Im sure I could find a few other people who may be willing to.
She wants me to just get the class B that's necessary for the jobs, but Id rather just go all the way. I know I'll be able to drive a semi, so I'm not too worried about that. I've been able to walk around cars and storage vans once or twice and drive them like I've been driving them for a year, which I take an excessive amount of pride in, lol.
So, any encouragement, tips, etc? Lol
