I attended the Evansville location and worked with Kim, Steve, Rocky, Kelly, and Alex. Everyone was easy to work with and took the time to explain what it was that they wanted us to do. Communicating with Kim to get signed signed up for this school was by far easier than trying to get ahold of the other local school, plus 160 has more start dates, which means getting you started sooner and working with your schedule. My biggest hurdle with driving these trucks was learning the shift pattern and double clutching as this was different from the vehicles I've driven in the past. Kelly and Rocky both took the time to help me correct the issues, as well as giving me pointers going down the road and what to look for at turns. Alex was a big help on the pre-trip and air brakes. Originally, I thought this was going to be much harder, but I had most of it learned by my second or third day on the yard. Steve was great to work with. He was willing to work around my schedule as I needed to miss a couple of days of class for personal reasons, and he gave me some tips in the maneuvers that really paid off on the test day to ensure that I didn't get any points. I would definitely recommend this class (and already have) to anyone looking to get their CDL as they made sure I was prepared to pass the state exam. It was a relief the day of knowing that I didn't need to worry about the pre-trip, air brakes or maneuvers as I had practiced them enough in the weeks before to pass them with no points, allowing me to focus on the road drive and to get my Class A CDL on my first attempt.
