Close to the End of Trucking School Training Already!!!

by Rusty Martin Jr
(Sugar Grove, Pa)

Well everyone, I am closing in on what I hope to be the end of my CDL training here at MTC in St.Louis, Missouri. Everything has been going really well and I have become good friends with quite a few of my classmates as well as some of the instructors. After 20 straight and grueling days, I am zeroing in on my CDL skills test.

I am scheduled to go to what has been claimed to be the hardest test sight in the area on Monday afternoon. God willing, everything will go fine and I will be on a plane back home Tuesday morning.

I have learned a lot out here and a lot more on the side to take on the road with me. Just thought I would hop on here and give you all the update on what is going on.

I want to thank you all for your continued support and wonderful comments. Without all of your encouragement, I don't think I would even be here.

I would have given up before I even got the call from this school and now I am hopefully within my final 48 hours of training.

Thank you all once again and I hope to see some of you later on down the road. Take care, be safe and God Bless.

Rusty, kickin butt and takin names!
by: Nick V

Keep on keepin on Rusty. Im sure you will do fine. Hey they dont throw an amateur boxer in with Mike Tyson at his first fight right. You got the training to take on the toughest and meanest terrain so get out there and put it to use.

Now its just a matter of bragging to the boys in class about how much higher your score was then theirs. Good Luck bud and im sure everything will work out just fine.

Trucking School Countdown to a CDL
by: Hervy

Rusty your in countdown mode to those Class A's now I see.

Good to hear man.

Good luck on Monday, remember to breathe deeply if you began sweating and getting nervous. No test result is the end of the world you'll be able to do it again if need be. I am sure though that you will do fine.

Thanks a lot for keeping us updated with how things are going man, it really makes a difference for the visitors who come to the site for insight on the process of entering the trucking life.

(And it's also very satisfying for nosey people like me! lol)

We look forward to seeing you down the road or at the cookout next year (TBA).
