i'm not sure if this is new or unknown information to anyone but I called floyd bennet field with a cd l question. apparently the guy on the phone is someone who does the orientations (I had mine in the summer of 08) and he said if a new class ever gets in the works they would start up training again for the driving license before one goes in and do the exact same orientation. meaning since its been six months++ since since the medical/drug test etc, the whole process from the beginning going into manhattan etc. would have to be done all over again<br />
<br />
i forget his full name, last name started with a T
captshiner are you sure you didn't misunderstand? From what I was told by friends and relatives that currently work for DSNY all we have to do is a "mini-medical" which is just blood/drug tests. We won't have to do the hearing/x-ray nor orientation again. I will see if i can get one of my relatives to talk to one of the union reps, maybe they will know for sure.

Oh and Good Luck to everyone on the list and lets all cross our fingers for a class this year!!! Never did I think I would wait this long with a list# of 59x

Welcome to the only DSNY 6063 related thread anywhere. I hope you make it whenever the next class begins. The longer that you wait for something that you want badly,the more rewarding it will be once you get it.

That is probably because Nov 07 was for one exam and July 08 was for a different exam. Did you have to take the physical again, the one where you had to move the pails and simulate throwing out garbage?

Your situation might have been different since that was 2 different lists. November 07 was the last class of the previous list and july was the first one of 6063

Just looking up some of my paperwork. I took my cdl training with dsny and my road test was May 8, 2008 for the July 7, 2008 class.
It is now almost june and nobody has heard anything, so figure there are no classes this summer. If nobody hears anything by the end of summer then there are no new classes this year.

Dude, have you tried emailing Doherty? I have had no luck. Not even an automated reply. Has he ever come inside your bar where you work before? Both of you live on Staten Island,just wondering....
