As long as you inform your DPE beforehand there is no formal CFAR that requires you to take a checkride from the left seat.
So you take your CPL SE ride a week or so before your initial CFI flying right seat.
Tell the DPE youíll do your CFI next and if he or she minds you talk through the maneuvers as if it were your CFI ride.
Ask them after the ride if in their opinion you would have passed a CFI ride or not.
Take notes during the debrief and work on those items. If there are any.
Iíve personally done 5-6 combined CPL/CFIís and theyíre a lot of fun to do.
Needless to say you need to ace your CPL ride.
Itís intense make no mistake about it.

Yes, if you're going right into CFI, finish the CPL and ride prep in the right seat.

Forum etiquette has it you start your own thread with your own questions and not foul up somebody elseís.
Or shotgun over three sub forums.

I'm about to start this too.

Are you using the combined CPL/CFI syllabus from ASA2FLY?
