i have been going to truck driving school and i have been having difficulties with setting up. i'm suppose to be atleast 2 to 3 ft from the cones but for some reason i have alot of difficulties judging my distance when i'm inside of the cab, how can i correct that problem so i complete a menuver without having a sloppy set up?

Set up.
by: Jimmy

This is easy. At school, you should set up where you think you should be, then get out and walk back to the rear and see if you are right on or need to adjust. Get use to walking from the front to the back. At certain times of day, you can use the shaddow from the sun as an aid. ALWAYS, ALWAYS start setting up as you approach, (make mental notes of objects, a can, a bush, an oil stain or whatever, as well as the cones.) Jimmy

Nothing happens unless you make it happen. How bad do you want? Keep at it and it will come to you.

Either practice, isn't that what school is about? Talk to your instructors. It seems the school is getting an insane amount of money not to be able to offer you some coaching.
You could also get your eyes checked.
