    3 count to three
    4 -6 seconds following
    5 -8 mirrors
    6 (s)can steering wheel.....6 and 7 both start with s like the number
    7 (s)tale green
    8-12 seconds eye lead

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    My helper from this past Peak was trying to qualify. He had the DIAD down cold---it was the driving part, especially in reverse, that he struggled with.

    It is my sincerest hope that everyone that starts a thread, "I am going to driving school" flunks out.

    18 years driving and I still don't know the stuff. I just keep getting told to learn it. And when they tell me that if I don't learn it I am going to get a warning letter I tell them to pay me extra time to come in and learn it. I'm not doing it on my clock.
