If I made a Youtube channel and documented my path to a successful trucking career starting at day 1 of cdl school, should anyone here watch/subscribe? Itd feel kinda weird to make videos that noon's gonna watch lol. Oh and Btw I would definitely give a Shoutout to TT in the videos. Let me know thanks.

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but any time spent documenting would be unfair to you, your school mates, and the school. There also might not allow it. If you have that amount of time on your hands you should use it for studying.

Not sure what bill is talking about here, but people do this all the time. If you do record on a company property, always a good idea to get permission first. I've considered it myself but don't have the time usually.

I was referring to the distraction that your documenting efforts would inevitably cause.

Ok let me clarify. I meant it would almost be like a diary. Im not going to record in the middle of class or out on the range. You're absolutely right it would be a huge distraction. No I only meant that I would talk about everything probably in the evening after I get home.

I think you should definitely do it. If you can put together some decent quality audio and video with it I'll post it on our YouTube channel which we're just starting to put together. We're going to find some people to post videos on different things, and documenting training is definitely one of em.

Bill, I don't think putting together a few videos talking about your training is too much of a distraction. I think it's important to try to have a little fun along the way too.

Sorry guys, I was picturing classroom interruptions, potential driving range embarrassment, and a lessening of quality time for all. I got nothing against having a little fun, but some folks (myself included) get a little squirrely when in the spotlight.
