I completed my driving test today and all went well. Even though I had been told no air brake test, I decided to study for it and glad I was fully prepared as it was part of the test. I was also required to parallel park and I drove the CDL course.

So glad that is over!

Scott, congrats on getting that out of the way. Glad you studied for the air brake. Now if they would just get that DS built!

Thanks guys.

Berry, I'll be watching her on the production line on December 1st.

Sitting at M&G in Athens today, having the brakes installed in the new Jeep.

When i took my test i studied the air brake section really well. When i met my examiner i asked her if she would like me to run through the air brake test, she asked if i had already tested them. I said that i had so she said that was good enough n she then proceeded to direct me down a residential tree lined street that beat my a/c covers to death!

Sure did Scott i asked her if she would mind if i drove on the wrong side (over the center line) to avoid the branches. She responded with "do what ever you think would be safe" and then did not doc me points

I'm impressed Steve, I really didn't want to take my test in a 44' coach! I was nervous enough in the 39 footer, just glad this is done and I don't have to worry about it any longer!

Do you have plans to be at any of the Boomers rallies early next year? We'll be at the February rally, hope to see you there.

Scott
