    When doing safety ride and doing the methods does the order in which you do things matter ? I have my own routines that I use that are very similar but not 100 % like the word for word methods .I still check everything just not in their order. I feel safe doing it my way .Does it really matter or should I just work on trying to retain myself ?

    No driver has the exact same routine regardless of training. Do it your way.

    They are going to get you on three items no matter what. Covemastah is right, don’t sweat it.

    I just tell them straight out that I'm gonna twirl the landing gear and I don't use the clutch pedal, they go ahead and write that down and then we just shoot the breeze for the rest of the ride.

    They never trained me in installing chains and don’t remember seeing anything in the provided methods on chains.... if you had feeder mgt that would ding you on that they are total dicks

    Most feeder mgt are unlike anything in pkg.... at least the ones here... they do a safety ride and that is usually only one leg....unless you are really :censored2:ing up and causing accidents they usually leave you alone...my experience I guess
