like GM said back on topic you can shift a few times but once in a intersection (if its a stick) you CANNOT change gears untill out of the intersection so you can bang a few gears then ride out the storm... same goes for railroad tracks.... don't stop on them at a light either

also you keep your hands at 10 and 2 even with a stick if your not shifting put it back on teh wheel... also when coming to a intersection look both ways (with your head not your eyes so they see you) before getitng the intersection then again when at the intersection... then the mirrors when teh back is leaving the intersection.... it our responcibilty to make sure some chick in a minivan on the phone didn't try and take out the trailer

and make sure you can tell them what ever signs say specily heights and weight signs..they ask after ya pass it....what was the height of the bridge back there? You better know it!

I'd give advice but I'm the dude people yell at, at the boat lauches for taking too frickin long, and they never find the humor in me getting out and asking if they can scoot the dock over a little.

Well, I took the test today... and I failed the vehicle inspection...

I nominate myself for dumb ass of the day.

the tester took me aside and explained why I failed...

I wasn't clear enough, I hit all the items, but didnt shout out specifics.

I suck, someone kill me?

Yah, only cost me $250 to find out, was an expensive crash course in failure.

But, when life knocks you down get back up and kick cube in the junk.
