Well, got my confirmation call from International Schools today. I will start my class orientation on Wednesday at 1pm. Orientation is supposed to include the DOT exam and agility test they require to take they class, which is nice.
I've read that at other schools they do not do this till after classes have started and sometimes not even till the end of class or not at all. However, Texas requires you to pass the DOT physical to even take professional driving classes.
So I'm ready to get started, I've already read the CDL testing guide four or five times completely through. Hopefully with the two-three days of class work going over the written testing requirements I'll fly through it when I hit the DOT office the week of the 18th to get my permit.
