Limited Shifting

I don't believe either run autos but you don't want one. Shifting is a valuable skill to have in the industry and just in general. You will get it, it takes time.

Learn how to drive truck in the mountains.......

Ok I drove the entire length of I-80 both directions through WY last week so I must have transversed this "mountain" twice without even knowing and I was just a student so how did these guys mess up?

WAS a student, trifecta yesterday :)

Adventures of a brand new OTR driver.

Well, since I obtained my permit before coming I am finished for the day.

Finished simulator training yesterday and computer based lessons today. Went over logbooks this morning. Today was much better then yesterday, I arrived at 3am Monday morning and had to be at orientation at 7 so it made for a rough and long day.

Anyway, I'm enjoying the experience so far, tomorrow is , according to the schedule, nothing but pre-trip all day. I read we had to obtain our passports and TWIC's somewhere but no one has said anything about it yet and its not on the schedule.

Guess I'll head out on the town and try to find something to do.

Sitting here eating lunch, arrived this morning and got my drug screen done. Physical is halfway finished and the line for the interviews is huge so I'm waiting.

Rest of physical at 1 and simulator training at 4.

So much waiting lol.

Question about HazMat endorsement.

So I have my Illinois PERMIT with tanker and I'm wanting to just go ahead and get EVERY endorsement so I'll have no limits as to what I can drive.

Do I need to do my prints, and all the hazmat stuff just to take the written? Or can I go ahead and take it and just not actually get the endorsement until its all done?

Average starting pay, years one through three?

I have no experience and don't even have a CDL but Prime is starting me out at 0.44/mile hauling a tanker once I obtain my CDL through them. I start August 18th.

Adventures of a brand new OTR driver.

Well, I joined 4 days, 7 hours ago...and that was the first time I started studying for my permit. This website is the only thing I've used...that's it, nothing else...and yet I was able to go in today very confident and score a 100% on my GK, Combo, Air Brakes and Tanker tests.

Yes, 100% using only the material provided and quizzes after each page this website provides. If that don't speak volumes about this website and forum, nothing does. I did not even touch my state book lol although I will in order to continue learning and brush up.

So I'm all set for the 18th to arrive. Thank you Brett for such an amazing website, it is able to single handle prepare a person with zero knowledge on CDL training to test in less then 5 days. and pass with a perfect score.

Thank you! Can't wait for the 18th.
