    So i failed my first road test, the on road sup said its just a confidence thing and you can try again in a couple months or whenever the next bid comes up. It was because i forgot to use the horn reversing into the garage and took too long to reverse park. Also was going under the speed limit.

    Should i continue to work at the hub for peanuts for the time being and see if i can fix my errors or should i call it quits because its my first time driving a truck of that size. Also renting a uhaul to me doesnt do any justice in my opinion.

    Thanks

    Just depends on how bad you want it. Few folks, myself included, had ever driven trucks that large before we were road tested.

    Thats true. But how often do people fail the first road test. It's strange to me how they wont even allow you to practice in one.

    The next time you're wondering "should I go to the bathroom now or hold it," don't post it as a question on an online message board.

    It’ll never go well in the truck unless you can relax and not let stuff get to your head. You lose your head and the rest will quickly follow.

    Get some practice in using a stick shift vehicle of any size and watch your tail swing if you road test again.

    Just practice some more. Take as large of a stick as you can find and go downtown or in an industrial park, and parallel park / back into as many things as possible.

    I am in the same boat, On-road knows I am trying to find an apt and repair a vehicle and will give me a drive test once life clears up and I know I can pass one.

    Your second road test will be a piece of cake.
