Missouri Permits

I Just talked to my recruiter and he told me Missouri will no longer transfer permits from other states. You must take the exams to receive your permits in Missouri. I don't know yet if they will have to fingerprint you and run another background check if you have already taken care of that in your home state.

Logbook question

I have my permits but I am not in school until Feb 1. Trying to make sure I fully understand the hours of service. Lets say I am driving and pull into a truck stop and I find out there is no place for me to park. My 14 hour clock just ran out. Am I allowed to go off duty and drive to the next truck stop which is 10 miles away. I am allowed to drive the truck for personal reasons off duty, so who is to say I wasn't going to walmart for groceries. Probably unethical but would it work?

High road training

Justin, You do not need the permit before you go but from what I understand it will make life easier when you get there. It is just one burden removed from the first week which will allow you to focus on backing and driving.

High road training

Just my opinion but the high road training program is awesome. I took all my tests and passed with flying colors. Even though I passed tankers and hazmat I cant get those on my permit until I show that I passed my skills tests. I got fingerprinted for hazmat and applied for twic card today. I am going to prime feb 1, hope I am not forgetting anything. It would have been much more difficult if I hadn't found this site and all the information I have got off here. Thanks

Physical

How extensive is the physical at Prime. I already have my 2 year med card.

Hazmat

I am going to take the tests for my permits in Wisconsin on 11/23. I received my med card so I know I am good to go. I will be going to Prime in January. Should I take my hazmat test and get the background check rolling or should I wait. I heard it can take up to 6 weeks for the background check. I want everything done that I can get done before I go.

Dui

will a dui in 1983 show up on my dmv record? In 1988 Wisconsin started keeping them on for life, prior to that they only stayed for 5 years

Medical card with Prime

Thanks for the info. I am getting it done here by a dot doctor, I walk out with a med card after the physical if I pass. That way I have my permit when I arrive at Prime. It is up to them to accept it or not but at least I have my permit. Now for the fingerprinting for the hazmat....

Medical card with Prime

I am ready to take my tests for my permits and just found out I need my medical card to obtain the permits. I am going to take the tests in Wisconsin. If I get a physical done by my doctor will Prime accept this? I want to go to prime with everything I need to make my job easier. Sent my application to them and left 2 voicemails with a recruiter and still no call back. there is nothing in my background that would prevent me from obtaining my cdl. Should I wait to hear from a recruiter or keep doing everything on my end to keep moving forward

High road training

It is a great program. I just started on the cargo and feel I need to do that one also

High road training

Currently I have cargo securement and new York coil endorsement left. I don't plan on flat bed so should I continue? My score is at 96% so I plan on resetting my score to try and get it closer to 100%. I don't want to fill my head with info I won't be tested on.

Applied to prime

I applied to Prime on 10/29 for school to get my cdl. Does it normally take this long to get a response? I have nothing in my background that would prevent me from driving. I have been studying the training program on this site so should I get my permit from Wisconsin before I go to prime school in Mo?

Starting a new career

Thanks for the advice Brett. I would need to find a place to park it. From what I have read on hear and the research I have done Prime seems like a good company as long as you get the job done.
