Where do I go from here?

I think you can still find many jobs mountain girl you shouldnt have to much a hard time with applying to them, if your not as confident, do what i did today, i called 15-20 and found out im done for for a yr or so till time has passed. call up companies and tell recruiters your story or only what they need to know. youll know who to look at after you made some calls

New driver wanting second chance

hi all i went with Werner Enterprises from cdl school, the sad thing is after 310 hrs of training the 4 trainers i had still didn't teach me to back up or how to read atlas or road signs right. it was all about follow the qualcomm gps which i didn't do well on either.

i ended up running into a bridge on my 6 day my self on the road and got a ticket for it. the gps messed up and i was lost trying to understand it.

i had 2 other smaller accidents on the truck that didn't include a ticket. on my second and 3rd day out my self.

i am wondering what my options are for going back to trucking cause i liked it a lot but the training was terrible even failed the test 2 times and he let me go ahead any ways to be nice.

also in the application part in trucking truth do i put down once accident for the ticket one or do i put that i had 3

if any one could help me find another way back to trucking it make my day

Seeking wisdom on 2 companies for consideration

hello, i am nearly done with school and doing a lot better this time around. my cdl test is Thursday. i would like to gain insight about 2 companies i am considering working for.

they are super service trucking and us express, i have looked and they both seem good on paper. any views or comments about them would be welcome. one thing i am not sure about is the pay scale for super server, its different. sorta like start out at 31 cent then no raises normaly but they give u 2 cents if your a good safe driver. i couldn't understand it all.

WIA? Would like more info on what this is and how to proceed.

I tried wia in my area but they wanted like 15 papers and documents all together, i tried to get them it all but it was time consuming, so after a month of trying to appease them and drive to their office. i just took out a small loan on my car and paid for the school i am going to now. i feel happier already. 1 week left. sorry i am a man though but this is advice i can give you from what my experience was

Looking for help with 90* ally dock manuver

hi to every one, my name is Daniel I'm a student that went 3 weeks at daly's truck driving school, and failed all the maneuvers. now the straight line and the off set are not too hard just had a bad day with them, so i can see my faults. how ever the ally dock is the one i never could understand.

with 4 instructors and having one each day, i get told some thing different a lot. so i haven't been able to grasp it. the one i currently tried to follow for a week was to

turn steering wheel one turn right, till you see second landing gear or dolly, stop

then turn wheel 3 turns left or all way left, till you move back past the middle of landing gear or cross part just a little/stop

then turn wheel all way right till you see the small gap just past the second landing gear or dolly and stop.

and i think from there its walking the trailer but i have been getting lost about that point all the time. i am not good with remembering how to turn to get trailer to go a way i need it too, or walk it.

if any one could help me understand what i need to do or a whole diff method for it it would be great, i have been given 2 more weeks at my school to get it right.

parallel is also one i have not much fun with. i keep forgetting the stopping points to look for, any one know a method for this maneuver too?
