What's Your States Paralell Parking Req.?
Well, it's week 5 of truck driving school & I've been on the maneuvers course since week 2. In RI, the state's requirement for blind/sight side paralell parking is to get the entire trailer(45') inside a 55'x10' box & the trailer has to be straight. The box(made up of traffic cones) is based on a point system. The side wall is 6pts. a cone & the front & back walls are 3pts. a cone. If you do a pull-up to reposition the rig, it costs you 1pt. In MA, you have to get the entire tractor & trailer into the box & if you hit a cone, you fail automatically but you're given 3 pull-ups before you fail. I believe CT's got the same paralell parking requirement as MA does. What was your state's requirement for paralell parking for your CDL test & how was the point system based?
