LIST STATUS UPDATE: 4/27/2021

The list for this exam has been published as of November 27th, 2019.

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.

HIGHEST LIST # CALLED: For the initial Pre-Employment packet: (Last Known - 500s)

For those of you who missed your initial appointment for whatever reason and 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.

NEXT SCHEDULED CLASS: TBA (To Be Announced)

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.

For those of you who have not done so already, you might want to check out this and this YouTube video. Next, if you need help getting your Class B Commercial Learner's Permit (CLP), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com which is free!! Remember, the multiple-choice exams that you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Finally, for those of you who need to obtain your Commercial Learners Permit (CLP): If you need to make an appointment at the DMV to take your multiple-choice examinations, click here.

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

Good luck!!

I passed the drug test, had to go down for my medical they told me since I would start training august 15 but finish 9/26 with my wedding on 10/17 call them back after my honeymoon and they will get me back to finish the process because theirs no guarantee a depot I end up in will give me all those days off straight out of training. They are in a hiring spree so I’m not worried about getting back on in October

The Mac asks about any surgeries you had and the doctor might ask to check your check or stomach for any scars for evidence of a surgery. If your wearing pants they can’t/won’t check your knees, might have you bend down every doctor is different.

Also that the drug test expired in 90 days- three months..so you may have to repeat the whole process again. And they may push you to down the bottom of list. It is up to you since family is always First.It suck to be  around the same time ..there is lot of people waiting... I don't know what the Total is.

My opinion is I  think you should secured it first and make up the training dates..  since there is training  almost every month.  Don't be afraid to ask the instructor.

I probably going to declined this position because of my father and mother . They don't want me to drive bus.  It is hard job . hopefully I get into conductor Job I need to listen to parents. It is hard since I pay so much for the exam  hopefully I can restore my list # in the future or reapply when I feel more ready. Good luck to rest of people who going to training this upcoming two week ..

Yeah I mean I took the test 3 years ago and you wanna call me 10 weeks before my wedding lol. I didn’t want to risk a what if factor so I’m sure If they were willing to hire me a week ago they still will 10 weeks from now. Drug test and medical should still be fine for me if I gotta take it again that’s fine I know I’ll pass so that’s not the issue. Because it says on paper prior vacations planned won’t be excused so I just think it’s a bad image coming out of training going into a depot Takin 11 days off already that’s if it’s even granted to me. Guy said call him back in October when I’m done with everything and they will get me back in

Same thing happened to me, they put me on medical hold for something that I knew I didn’t have. I cleared the medical hold 5 days before my class started and the person who invited me to 180 Livingston nor the employment center staff ever replied to my emails or answered my phone calls to make the appointment to go and take the paperwork before my class starting date. Suddenly 4 days after my class started Nov.8 they replied made the appointment after I finished doing everything it was completely silence from them going back to not answering again at last after two weeks the person who invited me said there were no more class until January and I would be call then… time passed until April me calling repeatedly I received the pre-employment application again I sent it back not response, appointment or anything I keep calling and investigating what is going on. A Good Samaritan inside the staff told me to email employment center again and explain everything to them and after 3 days I emailed them they replied saying my name was out of the list since Nov. due to the medical hold and to email DCAS to restore my name which I did and now when I called again to see what’s going on now that my name is restored they said you have to do everything all over again because the 90 days passed. Remind you I’m on the 200’s and I know people in the 500’s already finishing line training.

It is unfortunate what they’re doing and the communications are terrible. I never knew I was out of the list until now because that person never informed me about it nor instructed me to refer to DCAS for restoration of name in such a long period of times where so many classes had begun.

I am sorry to hear what happened with you. I think, in my case at least, that it was not intentional but a typical case of disorganization. Since candidates do not know the procedures, the hiring unit employees end up either giving the wrong information or the generic response of no vacancy " do not bother me I am busy" answer. I wish there was a better way of communicating with candidates. I hope you get called soon.

Any of y'all heard of "Red Hook on the Road"? Supposed to be a free CDL training class

Yes, they do exist and offer free cdl training but I’m not sure of the criteria to qualify. But it’s not a scam.

Once you get used to it, it's not that hard. Just like anything else, it's hard at first, however, over time it becomes second nature.

If you want some specifics, send me a Private Message (PM) and we'll take it from there.

Not employment related but how often are your off days going to be back2back? Monday-Tuesday, Friday-Saturday, Sunday-Monday, etc?

 

Is it possible to use RDO days right before or after your off days to make a 3 day off scenario?

Your RDOs are your days off. The work week runs Sunday thru Saturday and you are guaranteed your two RDOs every week. Under normal circumstances, they are back to back.
