High road training program question

Hi I am sorry I know I asked a similar question a few months back but I had some things hold up my schooling and now looks like I will finally be able to go within 5 or so weeks! So I am going to go get my permit within the next 2 weeks. Anyways I am using the high road training program to study and I was wondering exactly what sections I need to just pass the permit test and get the air brake endorsement. I would like to skip whatever I don't need to take the test till I pass it then go over them so I don't overload myself. Like I skipped the logbook section but I have full intention of going over it after I pass my test. I thought it was 118 pages but noticed the cargo Securement section was just added? Anyways if I can have a list of what sections I need to study just to pass the test so I don't overload myself then go back and do the other things that will help me once I am on the road. Would be much apreciated thank you very much!

Question on the high road training program

I am using the High Road Training Program. Which is very helpful and easy to use btw! I have a stupid question. I am on page 60 so far and I have finished doubles/triples and just started the tanker. I am wondering do I need to study these sections to pass the cdl written exam or are these sections to get the added endorsments? Or is that even more information somewhere else? If I don't need to study certain sections to just pass the regular cdl exam what sections should I skip right now? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I don't need all my endorsments right now so the less I have to study the better chance I will have to pass the regular exam lol

No problem I plan on taking my german sheperd with me once I get all my medical clearances taken care of and am solo in a truck.

That sounds great! Please let me know what it's like and how it works out in the truck. I really miss having my girl by my side. Also, I watched Trucker Josh on You Tube besides being quite the 'clown' he makes life with the dogs look easy and very fun as I imagined it could be on the road.....don't know how it will be once that German Shepherd pup is full grown though.....his cab is awfully small!

+1 for watching the Trucker Josh w/Diesel Weasel & Sargent videos. He is pretty much your happy go lucky Tim Hortons loving Canadian dude. I think he pretty much lives the Trucking Truth lifestyle... Has a great attitude, Loves Life, his Dogs, Family and Career.

Yeah trucker Josh is awesome. Love watching his vlogs he is always so positive we all can learn something from him I think. His and Allies vlogs are what originally got me interested in trucking actually and got me to look more into it.

Not sure what to do. I want to get into trucking, but am not sure on the best way to do so.

What problems with medications? I was under the understanding that as long as you have a prescription and a doctor signs that it doesn't effect your driving and isn't under the dot list that you are ok? I am currently taking humira and strattera I hope that neither will be a problem but as far as my understanding it shouldn't be at all as I have a prescription and it isn't under the dot no no list.

SWIFT in cab cameras

That's terrible. I agree with dash cam ones. Actually would save drivers money cause it's something they we all should have to protect ourselves. But in cab cameras? That is just terrible and an invasion of privacy. These are truckers homes.

Werner and APU'S...

I have no apu on my truck and we never seems to have an issue with keeping cool. Optimized Idle is a good thing. The idling temperatures are 25 and below and 70 and above. In between you should not need AC and if your cold you can turn on the bunker heater which is more than enough to keep you plenty warm.

Sorry I am bringing up an old thread but saw this and was wondering. Is the 70 and above in truck temperature or outside temperature ? Cause that could be a 10-15 degree difference.

Looking for a company that allows big dogs and has apus

Ok thanks for the info guys. How much did srt want for an APU? Cause I know those run thousands of dollars so I can't imagine a company wanting you to pay that. Also I would rather not do flatbed at this time. Eventually it might be something I would be interested in trying but I want to stick with dry van preferably or reefer starting out. Also I have read some places that people said the places that didn't allow dogs you had to keep them in your truck the whole time you were on the property? Not sure how accurate that is. If that's the case then I don't see that being a problem I would just make sure to stop and let him out before I arrived. I also understand I need to give him a lot of exercise which would be good for me too. He is kind of a lazy dog around the house unless we go for a walk or for a ride then he is all energetic so I think he will actually be happier in the truck with more stuff to see.

Hi I am about to go to school and researching what company I should start with. I have a clean record. I also have a 70lb lab that I want to take with me. I have someone that can watch him for training but will take him after that. I also want a company that has apus on the trucks. Thanks for any response I am really excited to start my new career and look forward to hearing some good advice.
