good luck on your next test. I'm like you, I get real nervous. but I figure the better I know my *****, the more confident I'll be.
F the terminator!
The Bronx road test is a little congested, so you need to be patient going around other trucks and crossing the the double yellow. Make sure its clear. There is one tough left hand turn, they might have mentioned it in class, just listen to your instructors about it. The highway is 1 exit. This was a big problem on our test b/c of the vehicles lack of pick up speed. we all had trouble getting to proper highway speed, so the examiner will understand, just call it out so he knows you know. Just listen to whoever is taking you to the road test. They do over train you at FBF, so if you dont get nervous you will be just fine. There is a reason they have such a high pass rate.

It rained the day of my roadtrip, i didnt even do a pre-trip.

i didn't do a pretrip either...but i went last

as soon as you get off the highway hes gonna ask u to make a left...ur gonna go under an overpass and make another left to get back on the service road....that is the tricky turn...do not go to the middle of the intersection in this case...if you do you will hit the curb on the left turn cause the service road is on a slant.

no pre-trips u lucky basterds..... i wanted to ask somthin its probably a stupid question but... my main problem with the road test is my nerves and then i kinda rush when i feel like i ****ed it up... soo has anyone had an examiner that gave you a problem and said you were too patient or goin too slow or waited to long to make a turn cause basically for my next road test im gunna try and take my time, think more, and go as slow as possible.... cause i figure its better to be too patient then to rush right

Well technically there was if you count supervisors and enforcement agents. We only care about sanitation worker,that is what we took the exam for.
