If you mean on the interstate, in my opinion you might get away with it. On local streets, though, safety in any amount of traffic is important. In fact, and depending on conditions, I usually travel less than the speed limit.

But the bottom line about speeding is that the person holding the steering wheel when you get pulled over gets the ticket - which goes in your record.

I bet you are with a lease operator. You can always tell him that as a new driver you are not comfortable going so fast. If he insists, contact the training office and ask for a different trainer.

What Errol said here 100%. NEVER in a CMV is it a good idea to go over the speed limit. That truck is an 80K lb missile just waitin to hit somethin. We are governed the way we are for the protection of others.

No we wasn't heavy,but I was governor at 70 and he kept telling me to go 70, and I wasn't comfortable with that plus my trainer have 3 days off, then put me in a hotel where there was a lot of drugs users at no restaurants around me but one had to walk on a road to get to the restaurant plus I'm a diabetic so I grab me a greyhound ticket and left

Roehl Transport: Get Your CDL Diary

Sounds like you'll be just fine. It's brutally cold there, but I got used to it. If you dress in layers you'll be fine. You'll be spending most of your time in the truck so it warms up. I have no idea what the weather is like year round, but after a while I didn't mind the cold but hated that it was overcast nearly every day.

So roehl doesn't have you standing outside all day for training?

Thanks for the advice. I was gonna get the toy truck, but my roommate thought it was a dumb idea and money is tight anyway. And I tried to do Memphis or Richmond, (only a few hours of home) but my recruiter said it was SLC or nothing. And yeah, there's about 8-10 per truck and I haven't been in a truck one time with an instructor. At least the weather is nice.

You will quickly see how the back end behaves as the front moves. You need to manually "turn" as the real tractor would turn. And you don't have anybody trying to kick you out of the cab!

how much does the truck cost I'm considering buying me one
