The list for this specific exam has been extended to January 6th, 2022.

Here is the Notice of Examination for this specific exam in case anyone needs this for future reference.

TRAINING: See this thread for more information.

NEXT SCHEDULED CLASS: Currently Unknown

For those of you who wish to restore your name to the list, you must do so by sending an e-mail to certificationunit@dcas.nyc.gov. In your e-mail, state your full name, exam number, list number, the last four of your social security number, and a brief reason why you're restoring your name to the list. You don't have to go into full detail in the e-mail.

For those who will be reporting to Livingston Street in the future, click here for the pre-employment packet and click here or for extra pages of the CPD-B booklet (if you need them) for final processing.

Next, for those of you who are still waiting, you folks might want to check out this and this YouTube video. In addition, if you need help getting your Class B CLP (Commercial Learner's Permit), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com which is free!! Remember, the multiple-choice tests you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Finally, if you need to make an appointment at the DMV to take the multiple-choice examinations for your Commercial Learner's Permit, click here.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We're here to help each other.

Good luck!!

Does the letter tell u if theres a class 11-28? I believe it tells u which class ur been considered for .. does it tell u on there?

You will be told what class to report to after you clear medical and go over the 21 page packet and finger printing

Sparow857- I have my CDL Permit.

Not the only one. From what I was told after you do the 10 testing and pass, you then go through more training for 4-6 weeks. During that time TA sends you out to do a cdl road test with the dmv. If you fail after that I believe it's over. Can someone verify this information. I would like to take it as soon as possible on my own. Pretty trip is one part and the road is another.

 

This lovely lady I met there was really informative and said I will and knows I'll do well. She was right about everything yesterday,[emoji4] , said I would clear medical and did. Like some sort of angel[emoji56] .

 

I can't wait to get the feel of the buses and be on the road. Also heard clerks say they need to call in more people to process and this class has more room to fill.

Sorry to hear that. I've been hearing and seeing lots of people with issues when they get called to be seen. Honestly I never thought I would be called in so quickly. NOV 3 was pre employment. NOV 9 was medical, finger printing and paperwork. Next November 14 training! This is all happening so fast, and I'm not looking forward to resigning in such a short time with little notice. Something that could have been handled differently. People are leaving jobs with years put in, my experience is 3. Bittersweet if you ask me. But I know this is what needs to be done in order to progress. Ironically the Depot I'm thinking of would be close toy old job, heinsight.

they are going to deny you with a pending ticket now once the ticket isn't pending it doesn't matter if you have a ticket on your abstract as long as the ticket doesn't go over a certain amount of points or that your license is not suspended from it


yeah I didn't expect everything to happen so soon either but congrats to you I'll be in there in October God willing

No, no mention of a class at all...I'm just assuming, since it looks like there's a class every two weeks...

I once heard that there is a class every two weeks so u might be able to start on that day hopefully ...

Yes according to the rep taking my blood pressure readings the limit is 160 do I passed. And no the breathing was only for subway track employees exposed to all that pollution asbestos and track metal dust, testing for capacity I believe but not for bus operators.

 

I start monday

Congrats! Good luck!!

If you qualify on Days 7 or 9, you have two chances for the DMV road test. If you qualify on Day 10, you have one chance to qualify.

Speaking of the pre-trip, have you looked at the handouts provided by my instructor back in 2014? The last two images contain the pre-trip checkoff list for both the interior and exterior of the MTA bus...

Great information. TY. BTW how much time do you normally get behind the wheel those days? And the chances (exam) how long do you wait to take them? I'm guessing day 1 is paperwork or class orientation. Anyone know the days and what is expecting each day?

You i could be wrong but from the previous description when you were in a tizzy about getting your ducks in a row IIRC you said you work in midtown for the USPS only Depot in midtown is on 11th Avenue which is Quill

Not me. I do live in lower Manhattan so that Depot would be closer to me[emoji4]

I paseed today on day 9 good luck yall. Just follow everything they say and you should be fine. And remember it's training so just drive sloe slow slow. Watch those mirrors every 3-5 seconds and keep your 4-5 feet on right side.

I had Pena for first 7 days and then Quarless for 8 and 9 and they're both amazing.
