Negative........ You still dont have the job until you pass the two weeks intense training. If you have vacation weeks from your current employer or short term absent, use it.  

Are you in the Bronx depot?. I’ve been driving for over 10 years started out with greyhound

Congrats to all those who are about to start class. I just completed my medical today and will start class on the 26th. I only have my permit so taking lessons before then as much as i can. Ms. Richardson told me you could certify on day 6 and TA gives you 3 chances for the dmv.... how true is this? I heard its only one shot for the road test.

That’s great to hear I go down on the 13th for my physical and final process. They have me scheduled for the same class if all is well with my physical and background

I agree with justdre88 it was fairly quick. I went on Monday I was number 3 to sign the clipboard. I am actually waiting for my certified disposition. I have a disposiion but that one isn't certified. So unfortunately I couldn't finish the process. Ms. Chestnut said to call when I get my certified disposition.  I know it's in the mail hopefully I recieve it by Friday. So I can hopefully go down there on Monday and finish the process for the next class.

No, I'm in  the Brooklyn Division...5 mins away from home to my respective depot.

That's great, just keep in mind that you have to let that 10 years go during the 10 day training. The Supt can careless if you were an driver instructor or 19A instructor for example how rough they will be. 10 years driving a big commercial vehicle to them means 10 years of bad habits that has been develop. Just go there knowing that you are starting from scratch and do it the way they want it to be done. The good thing for you is that you already have driving experience which is a plus to you, but you have to adopt to the transit way. As long you listen and execute what they are asking for, you will do fine.......

No you can not qualify on day 6. U have to be perfect day 6 to be able to qualify on day 7.  And you are allowed a maximum of 2 road tests. You get 2 road tests if you qualify on day 7 or 9. If you qualify on day 10 you only get 1 shot at the road test.  Unless they changed it from last year lol. Good luck my friend.

I have a question do we have to have the medical insurance paperwork filled out before we get to the class or is that done down the line ? Or those it automatically enrolls you in once you have the 90 days

I was told to have it done before the class and to bring it everyday during that week. She said someone will come and get the folder

I have a Quick question do they give hand outs for us to study and if they do can anyone put up the most  important points up thanks in advance 

You'll get a whole book that will outline what you will learn each day. It will be your Bible for the first 10 days, along with your superintendent's instruction.

I could say Manhattan are the easy depots when it come to lines, you will be driving straight up and down or crosstown. Not much of right or left turns. BUT is not easy dealing with traffic, bikes and yellow cabs.. it’s really challenge out there need to have your eyes open and follow what zerega told us to do in order to keep our selfs on the job.
