Husband and Wife Team Training

We recently had a recruiter from covenant come and talk to our class. They indicated that they preferred team drivers and that they would allow the team to stay together during the training period with a trainer on board as a third person.

Hope that helps.

Dollar General Accounts

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I don't mind the idea of unloading, with it mostly being rolltainers and such it seems to be doable. I kind of like the idea of regular breaks to do some physical activity. (lol, guess i am an oddball in that regard)

Both of the companies seem pretty solid, was just wondering if anyone thought one or the other was significantly better as a starter company?

Dollar General Accounts

Thinking of jumping on the dollar general ship with either averitt or werner to get my feet wet in the trucking industry.

Any opinions of how these two companies compare to each other for the same job (delivering to dollar general...)

Question about whether company counts as OTR miles

If it helps answer the question, the local company is actually a "Bekins van lines" agent.

Question about whether company counts as OTR miles

Hello again everyone,

About a week away from graduating with my Class A Cdl. Was strongly considering going with one of the typical new driver companies to get a year of OTR experience. (Werner / Covenant were the top runners because i would be able to start off with a regional / dedicated run with more regular home time.)

However i happened to bump into the HR manager for a local moving company who is looking for drivers. (something similar to atlas van lines..etc)

Can anyone advise if time worked with these sort of companies counts as OTR experience? the work would basically involving hauling peoples personal belongings between military bases in the south east (florida to texas)

I am interested in knowing if this will count towards trucking experience.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Reside in one state CDL in another

Today i have spent the day talking to a few companies about there inhouse CDL training program.

I liked what i heard from Prime, and have been so / so on a couple others.

But i heard something interesting from FFE and wanted to double check on it.

The recruiter first asked where i lived and if my Drivers lic was from that state (louisiana)

and then he concluded the discussion by saying that i would not be able to get a cdl from his school in texas or his other school in (i believe it was mississippi) because my drivers lic was from louisiana.

He indicated that there had been some recent changes on laws in some states which kept people from getting there CDL from somewhere other than where they resided.

What's the implications of this, does anyone know which states this knocks me out of? Just curious.

Grade A Prime Certified 100% fresh Noob..... looking for some feedback!

None of the endorsements will show on your permit but they will be on file with DMV so when you get your actual CDL thats when you will see the endorsements. If you study here you can take all the tests and pass then on the same day. If you study and prepared its a breeze. I took all my tests before I found this site and passed them all first try, so you have an advantage with this website. Good luck you'll do fine.

Okay i understand.

another quick question, if i use the site info to study and then go to my local dmv in louisiana and get my permit. And then go to a out of state company sponsored school does that cause any problems?

Get all your endorsement tests done before you go and when you get your CDL they will be on your licence, except hazmat takes extra steps as far as background check and fingerprinting.

Thanks, so if i use the training tools on here to train for and get my permit i can also use those tools to get the endorsements added to the permit and then the CDL when i get that... nice..
