Should I just take the skills test after being out of the biz for 10yrs?

I have logged between 800k to 1mil miles in a big truck from 1993 to 2001, never had an accident and was one of the best in the business.

(of course that sounds like a trucker so now you know I'm real.)

So I am thinking about getting back into the game, I took and passed all of the written including hazmat and tanker the first try. So I have a little confidence now but I'm wondering if I pay for the skills test, 300.00,and hope I pass or do I go to the refresher course, 1000.00, which included the skills test.

Just wondering what you think.

Skills test for trucking getting back on the road after time off

Well they always told me once a truck driver you never forget it. It is just like riding a bicycle you never forget.

It is up to you, and if you had the money to spare I would take the refresher course. Just to knock the rust off.
