Sure i actually did not study when I first took it, and passed general knowledge and failed Airbrakes by one. lol You also could skydive without a lesson just doesnt mean you can open your chute.

Tony,
Bring that letter they sent you originally and your license that's about all you need tomorrow. They give you the rest. After they are done you need to get 3 other tests done at different sites - bloodwork which they will give you a list of where have it done, an x-ray up by Union Square and a hearing test which you can only get done on Tuesday and Wednesday. I took mine on Thursday 3 weeks ago and was able to get the x-ray done before I had to head to work but got the blood done Friday and the hearing the following Tuesday.
Good luck

We find out tomorrow when our road tests are. I don't think Saturdays because the training staff works mon-fri. My confidence is shot... I am comfortable driving and I can do the pre trip without even looking at a truck but once they put you on the spot I freeze up and start second guessing myself constantly. That's just me though.
I can tell you this I never drove a truck and on monday we drove basically on an open field for 45 minutes and on tuesday we were out on the streets. Be confident FBF obviously is confident in you. Today I didn't drive at all just parked and 50 ft backing and that was maybe 10 minutes. Tomorrow I will be out on the streets and on the highway. So if anybody living in south brooklyn plan on going out tomorrow just remember there are 20 guys driving around that have no clue what they are doing!!!!!

Turkey, he's talking about the Driving test, not written....Listen no one is EVER going to pass a CDL road test without learning about it first....It is not possible. So to the guy with the big Balls. Take lessons. Plain and simple. Good luck....
