    Hi, anyone that has been to the Integrad driver training facility near chicago recently, do you know if they use manual trucks? My hub does not use or test on them anymore but it is still a qualification for 22.4, so i am assuming Integrad will have a stick shift. Thank you in advance for info and help.

    For the in-yard training, yes. The really old trucks. For the on-road training, they're automatics.

    The Integrad facility I attended was all automatics. As for my center, we're down to just a few manuals left and they're all next in line for the crusher. I don't even think they require rookie drivers to know how to drive them anymore. And good riddance. They really do need to be put out of their misery.

    I'll be rolling down to hell like a man. In a manual. Have fun letting the robots drive you to eternal pussification.

    I think it may have these weird cutout holes, in the safety walkpath. I can't tell you because I don't have a tard vest to go out of the safety path.

    What do you mean by " in- yard " training, like the vehicles that move the semi trailers around?

    It means there's a small fake route on property that you drive around a make fake deliveries in a package car.
