Prioritize Your Stress: When it comes to getting your CDL, there are certain steps you need to take. As Trucker G starts the video off saying, if you don't even have your CDL permit yet, there is no reason for you to be stressing about the road version of the CDL exam. You have a few more steps before you will be at that point! Focus on getting that permit first. Once that is done, focus on the next steps toward earning your CDL license.
Don't Be Hard On Yourself: Everyone is different when it comes to testing, some can ace tests the first try without barely studying, it just comes naturally to them. While others struggle to comprehend and remember the material. Whichever you are, don't get down on yourself when you don't do as well as you expected. There's no rush when it comes to earning your CDL license, and there will always be an opportunity for you to try again. If you struggle in any part of the driving or written test, before trying again, practice practice practice. You will be sure to do a great job next time! Have confidence in yourself and you can do anything!
Study, Study, Study: Even if you are one of those that are amazing at taking tests no matter what, the true way to know you'll pass on the first try is to study! Study until it's your second nature, this is going to be your career for probably the rest of your life so there is nothing wrong with knowing every bits and piece there is about truck driving. Be prepared and as Trucker G said - don't stress out about upcoming steps when you are only on the first one!!
