  16. Just wanted to leave a comment about the quality of your video
    My employer allowed me to use their equipment to test for my cdl class a
    I couldn’t afford the cost of driving school so I went to YouTube and found your video
    I’ve watched it several times
    I’ve rehearsed with the equipment several times also
    I managed to fail the friction test 2 times before I passed it but I got thru it
    Now I have my cdl class a with XT endorsements no restrictions
    This is a very good video very informative
    I didn’t have the benefit of instructors like students in a driving school so this is really the only tutor I had
    Thanks for posting it
    It has really helped me out
