Day 11: Sept. 6, 2016

Day 11 is normally a Monday for students taking a commercial driver license training class at Truck America Training in Shepherdsville, Kentucky. For our CDL or Bust class, it falls on a Tuesday thanks to the three-day Labor Day weekend. 

That means four days of practice on the range and on the road this week, leaving Days 15 and 16 for next week, leading up to CDL exams conducted by Kentucky state troopers on Sept. 14 and Sept. 15. Sometime soon the students will head over to the Kentucky State Fairgrounds to practice on the course on which they will actually be tested.

We anticipate speaking by Skype with students Wayne Meenach and Ryan Strange today, and their interviews will be posted in the afternoon.
