    They gave me a truck in which the speedometer didn't even work to test in. The needle wouldn't move above 20mph. Failed pre-trip on the tester's part in my opinion. The tester even tried to dodge the next appointment after me because his fat ass must have had better things to do (eat more candy probably). Do UPS driving schools have a truck that accurately displays the vehicle's speed or is that a long shot?
     
  2. What does the speedometer have to do with you failing?

    I ground a few gears, docked 60 points. Knowing exactly how fast I'm going would have easily prevented this. No RPM gauge in the truck either.

    Nothing! Not even close :)
     
  6. Speed or an RPM guage ... You don't need them.
    Listen to the sound of the engine. I can up shift with no clutch just by listening to the while of the engine.

    Better luck next time.

    Did they bring you in off the street or are you currently working for UPS?

    How many points is minus if you can’t tell how fast you’re driving?
     
  14. I was talking about without using the clutch. You couldn't even do it with the clutch.


    - no paycheck for you.

    Anyways bros, I'm out. I'll be avoiding all of you on the street from now on. Be safe, peace!
     
  16. Seriously how often do you look at the speedometer?

    We will still spot you when you are grinding gears in your Honda Civic!
