Day Four – Test Day

Went over HazMat in the morning, then released at lunch to go to the DMV to take the written.

General Knowledge: Passed
Air Brakes: Passed
Combination: Passed
Doubles and Triples: Failed
Tanker: Passed

Oh well, the idea of driving a double or triple trailer at this point scares the bejeebus about of me anyway.

So, I got the permit, and brought a stack of backup paperwork to get the REAL ID Card. Whatever the hell that is.

A couple of guys in my class didn’t make it, they’ll go back tomorrow I guess.

One guy, NOT in my class I’ll have you know, walked into the testing room, sat at the screen for about 3 minutes furiously punching answers, then yelled some obscenities at the screen, shared with the entire class that he failed again, punched the screen, more obscenities then stormed out.

Yeah, he’s the one I want behind the wheel of a 70,000 lbs rig.

I’m glad this is over, if I’m honest. This was just beginning stress anyway, preparation stress. A stress taster spoon. I’m sure the actual driving test will be the Everlasting Gobstopper of stress.

I’m glad tomorrow is a day off. Have a great weekend, everyone.
