    What should I expect on the written test for cover driver...what are the main things I should learn

    Will be tested on Thursday and also a road test?

    I drove a package car around the yard everything is good except for my backing up to the right exact dock..will that be a major problem?

    Backing up to the wrong dock door could be a problem.

    oldngray nowhere special

    not being able to find the correct parking spot in the building doesn't bode well for being able to find places you need to deliver to

    Scottyhawk What is it? A brown box. Duh

    If you are talking about driver orientation training written test? WORD FOR WORD: 5 seeing habits, ten point commentary, 5 rules of backing, 8 keys to lifting and lowering, 5 keys to preventing slips and falls

    What's the problem ?? Can you read and count can't you ??? or do you have a sigh problem and can't see to well. If they tell dock one you back up to dock 1 not 53. Do you have the same problem backing you car into a parking place. If so driving a package car isn't for you.

    I believe he may be talking about backing up to the boxline and getting square and between the lines on the dock.

    I always found the quantum physics part to be a real challenge. The things UPS wants you to know these days!
