Decision - Pam, Werner or Shift?

From my research, PAM pays the lowest of any company and Prime pays the highest.

Hello, Southwest!

When I crossed the border from Texas I called my wife and told her that I saw an old RV parked out in the distance with smoke coming out the top. She laughed. Sarcastically.

I don't get it.

And for your physical, you must use a medical examiner who is certified by the FMCSA:

Permit test?

You can no longer get your permit with all endorsements. You can get a copy of your MVR at your local DMV or get one online.

Class A permit in my hand!

Didn't I tell you....I can see the future. Nah, not really, I just saw some of your earlier posts. Things are shaping up to where we should have a good class. Can't wait to get started...

Hehe. I can't wait either. I've been pumped up for weeks doing my research for this career. Do we have a full class? I was hoping it would just be and the other guy. More time driving! :)

Class A permit in my hand!

Woohoo! It was easy since I only had to take the Combination part. Missed one question out of 20. Actually out of 17. It stopped at 17 because if I missed the last 3 I would still pass. Do all states do that or just MS?

Amazing Rescue

I'm glad he's alive, but how does one not ever learn to swim? That's like a life necessity. You don't have to go swimming all the time, but at least learn.

Use the link button or if you know HTML, use the appropriate code

YouTube URL links don't end like TT's link button likes. I tried different ways to get the video URL to no avail.

Because you're probably just copying the link from the URL bar. When on youtube and you want to get the link, hit share, and you will see a url you can copy and paste.

Third Time Fail Rule

The High Road is based on the Illinois CDL test so one can assume that is an Illinois rules.

Yeah I can't find anything about it for MS. So I assume if you fail and want to retest, you have to pay again. I can't even find a rule on it with FMCSA.

Third Time Fail Rule

That must be in your state. In Arkansas if you are willing to buy the testing materials after you failed 3 times you can continue to test till you die of old age.

I figure after 9 attempts and all failed I think it might be time to try something else.

That rule was quoted from the High Road program. I'm not worried about failing since I only have to take the Combination test. I was just wondering because I wanted to go take it tommorrow wiout even studying just to see if I could do it. I don't want to have to pay $16 again if I fail it.

Third Time Fail Rule

Is this for every state? Or can it vary?

Third-Time Fail Rule

CDL applicants who fail any CDL exam(s) three (3) times are required to wait 30 days from the date of the third failed exam. Three additional failures (6 total failures) of the same exam(s) will result in a 90-day waiting period. Three additional failures (9 total failures) of the same exam(s) after the 90-day waiting period will result in a one year waiting period from the date of the last failed exam. The waiting periods apply only to the exam(s) failed three times. Applicants are allowed three attempts to pass per fee. After failing any test three (3, 6, 9) times, an appropriate fee will be required to re-take the exam.
