SS card?

It doesn't matter how old your birth certificate is. Mine was issued when I was 4 years old and I've never had a problem. It has the raised seal so it's good. It's falling apart but then it's 24 years old soooo....

Thanks Chicki and Rick.

SS card?

I would take the birth certificate, passport, and the social security card just to be safe. Since we're on the topic of birth certificates, as long as it has the raised seal, is there a limit to how old it can be? For example, what if one has their birth certificate with the raised seal but it is five years old? Would one need to get a new one?

Work History

Hello all,

Question. On the sites I have gone to for the "starter companies" that pay for everything upfront and you then work for them for around 9 months, they all say that they only need three years of verifiable work history. Yet I have read on these and other forums where some drivers have said that the company they work for requires ten years.

Do some started companies only require three years of verifiable work history while others require more?

DOT Physical before starting trucking school

DOT Physicals are registered in a Federal Database. I would not "just get one" to see if I could pass.

Excellent point that i didn't even know, Tractor Man. I don't want to be in a federal database before going to school so it looks like I will just wait. Thanks!

DOT Physical before starting trucking school

Hello all, Just curious about something. It may be six to nine months before I start applying to some trucking schools. I am considering getting a DOT physical and paying for it myself. I want to do this to see if I can pass before going to a school and then find out a day or two after class starts that I didn't pass.

I'm not taking any medications and I just got mt BP checked and it was 120/70. I'm assuming this is possible as long as one is paying out of pocket?

Solo or team ?

It seems like a lot of the starter companies are making the new people drive team a little longer than what I have learned in the past. CR England has on its website that you go out with the trainer for about a month and then go team for a month and a half. good-luck-2.gif

To get a Passport,or NOT?

Yeah, the child support will for sure keep you from getting a Passport. Aren't you afraid of being arrested owing that much? I thought if you were even late with a payment that they would put you under the jail.

To get a Passport,or NOT?

I read of another trucking company that said they were going to make it (Passport) a requirement in the near future for all of their drivers. Why not just get your Passport and then you won't have to worry about it? They don't cost that much and are good for ten years.

After you get your Passport, you can apply for the Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC). That will look even better. I don't believe you need to have a Passport before applying for the TWIC but it makes the process faster. At least that's what they told when I applied for mine back in 2012.
