Do not enter the intersection until there is no one in it. IE stay behind the crosswalk until the intersection is cleared of turning vehicals then use the intersection for your turn only one vehical at a time can use it. Good Luck!!

I got back a little while ago. It's a stressful day, or at least it was for me. Paperwork, photos id's, fingerprints. That's it. You don't pick medical or set up your pension until you go to fbf. Most important things you need are, birth certificate, cdl license, proof of residency from no longer than 60 days ago , social security card, postal money order for 94.25. without those you will be put on hold until a date they tell you to bring it in, i think june 25 or somewhere around there. They said they are still calling to fill the july class. My guess is that if they are, it will be next week after this processing. I hope that's true. we'll see. Thats all for now, i gotta go.....Sorry if i forgot anything i'll write it later

Does anybody know if they will reject a social security card that is laminated? I got mine laminated years ago even though on the back of the card it says "do not laminate".. I did it so the card wouldn't get torn,worn out.

Hey Van that's an awesome question. I actually tried to do the same thing a couple of years ago but the girl at Staples actually knew you weren't supposed to do that. I would break out a razor blade and carefully try to cut it out. Even if it isn't an issue at Dsny maybe it will be someplace else.
