I went in for the medical April 11 and was quickly thrust into the 4/15 class after I was cleared.  I originally got called for the drug test back in November but did not get called back for the medical. I got another call to come in April 8 for another drug test. 

Did you have to take a Boss Survey? I just got an email to report May 1st

According to the rules and regulations of the City of New York, you can restore your name to the list for a maximum of three times. Therefore, since they did advise to call them again, that's what I would do before going back to DCAS to restore your name to the list. I know it's a big headache, however, as we all know, in the end, it's worth it...

Ah interesting, I’m honestly a little nervous for the boss considering I took a couple for MTA. I don’t wanna fail.

Hey sorry to double post, but do you have any more example questions from the boss aside the ones posted in the 4600 thread? I took the boss and passed it twice and I’m even more nervous because this is my next step.

First of all, don't worry about double posting. Myself, you, the other staff members and everybody else are all human beings - we're not 100% perfect.

Second, as you referenced, I posted eleven [11] BOSS sample questions here. Since we do have anonymous guests on the site, including those from 180 Livingston Street and 2 Broadway, I would encourage you to use those BOSS 'sample' questions as a starter. After all, you passed it twice, so you probably know what you're doing.

By the way, I sent you a Private Message (PM)...

Yes I did. You have to use your machine for at least 4 hours a night for 30 days straight. Once you complete it bring them the results. I got off my hold in February.  Still waiting to start

I mistimed a turn signal and got braked just as the bus was rolling into the crosswalk.  It had turned yellow. I was so mad. 

It's whatever. I'll see what happens tomorrow.

To make a long story short, it's up to the instructor. A little over five years ago, when I attempted the 10-day training session out of the Flatbush Depot, Day 7 was held in the Bronx since that gave the instructor time to file our sheets from Days 1 to 6 at Zerega without doing any pre-trip inspections. In addition, from reading another post at one point or another in my lifetime, another instructor, who was out of a Bronx depot, made the students do a complete pre-trip, followed by driving on the local streets and the highway for one exit.

Now here's my question: For those who have the CDL who do not have to take a road test, if your driving, backing up, parallel parking, etc. are 100%, but you screw up on your Day 7 pre-trip, they will still send you to Day 9? IMHO, that's discrimination, however, compared to this incident, I have no proof, therefore...

I'm sorry you had to go through this Young, You are very humble and I really hope you get over on this side NYCT as a Bus operator very soon.

I believe Day 6 route has been modify a little bit, not sure the exact details, but I heard they made a slightly change on the tour.

Anyone from the recent classes can confirm this?.....
