My condolences to whoever was in the middle of training yesterday and clipped their mirror on a truck on 3rd Ave around 14th. Tough break, supervisor did not look impressed.

Ouch!!!!! That's going to leave a mark.

definitely not good but i found most instructors are forgiving. the student will definitely do day 10. On our first day of line training one girl rear ended another bus. she was sent for drug test ASAP. remember, SLOW DOWN. no one's rushing you.

Any news on Igor

Hey Goose! Just an update on Igor he sent me an email a few days ago that he messed up on day 6 so he couldn't`t qualify on day 7. Had day 9 and 10, and he's in a nervous break down, because he really wants it bad...after that nothing else. Today was Day 10 so let's see...we were in the boat like him while back...did read my email about Siegel? Let me know...

Does anyone know what they would do for those who have an out of state cdl  do they still have to take the state test? and when is the best time for those out of state to transfer their license into NY state?

Does anyone suggest taking CDL lessons before the training and getting your license before even being called up?

u do need a cdl permit when they call u but i did it on my own time getting the cdl lincese 1st be 4 the mta hired me i did it so i have one less obstacle to worry about. if u wanna have 1 less obstacle 2 worry about i would say go 4 it but lets say u have the cdl license u still gotta learn to drive the bus there way the mta way u just won`t have 2 take the dmv road test that`s all.
