Good on ya mate.
I recall in like 89 or so I took the D test. I flunked the driving part. You didn't have to do the Z part then. I didn't take any schooling I just went for the test and planned it when I needed a truck for moving. I only failed because the guy said I shouldn't put the shifter in Neutral at a red light because he feels you should be able to take off quickly when it turns green. But the cheap Ryder jalopy I rented had such a hard clutch pedal it was kind of painful keeping my left foot in it for the red light, and I was getting it in 1st in time for the green anyway anticipating it by watching for the amber light in the cross ways lights, and besides, what if it were an automatic? I would have got away scott free! I could have tested again but I didn't bother.

Thanks everyone, their is alot more to remember since the 80's, over 90% of people who are in their 60's and have to redo the test fail cause of all the things you have to remember, and you have to do them in order.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a AZ license? From the context, I think it's a Canadian CDL... but I could be totally wrong.

Don't feel bad, my first thought was "why is a Canadian getting an Arizona drivers license?" Laughing

It is a big deal considering how easy you can kill ALOT of people if you dont know what the truck/airbrakes air doing. which is why 90% of people over 60 fail on their re-test due to the test being so long now.
1)Air brakes(the longest one)
2)drop trailer, hook back up
3)circle check
4)in-cab check
5) drive around town
6)90 degree back-in
1970-80's you didnt have to learn any of that crap lols

I meant the name of the license,not knocking the training. In the 70-80 you did learn those things if you were properly trained. I had a six week course way back then and it wasn't 9-5, we would go out in a snowstorm at 2 am. I think I aged 10 years Laughing

Pa-in-law just switched jobs from tractor-trailer to propane hauling... less physical labor, since he injured his shoulder. There was some additional training and licensing for transporting hazardous/explosive materials but I don't know all the details.

He's hauled just about anything you can imagine in the last 40 years... industrial AC units, plane fuselages, Audi R8's, Boats, classic cars, windmill blades (I think), driven refrigerant trucks, livestock, etc.

Good money in it for the single type who is alright working tons of hours.

Never adjust your logbooks or accept overweight loads based on instruction from your boss, and always follow your permit stipulations when transporting special loads... the boss isn't totally free of responsibility but it's ultimately your license.
