    With all the experience you have driving large vehicles you should be a shoe in. Just relax and forget you are being evaluated. They always have to find so many things you have done wrong so don't take it personally.

    Just picture all the drivers naked. It helps calm nerves.

    Use signals, and don't hit curbs or anything else, and you'll be ok.

    Once you get moving you'll realize it's not a big deal. Especially with your experience.

    obey all traffic signals and speed, they will test u in the crappiest truck in the lot, ask them to drive it around the lot a few times and back into a few bays before you go on the actual test to help you get adjusted to the crappy clutch and gears. once you go on the actual road don't hit any curbs and try not to grind gears, with your experience you should be golden pony boy!

    If I can pass a road test, anybody can pass a road test. Good luck, you'll be fine.
