One Section Only of High Road

Thanks ChickieMonster, Jim J & Brett:

Now that I am solely testing on Logbooks, I am doing so much better!!! I am trying to get a better understanding of that before I start trucking school on Mon.

Karen

You can do a couple of things to prevent the review questions from showing. One was mentioned - you can do the questions only in either of two review sections we have or use our Android mobile app for review questions:

You can also simply logout of our system and use the training program that way. If you're not logged in you won't get any review questions. You'll only get questions from the page you're on. Of course it won't keep track of your score that way or give you review questions from other pages in the section you're working on.

You can also reset your score. That will start you over with a clean slate and no review questions from other sections.

I would highly recommend you keep doing the review questions as they come up though. That's how you learn is through repetition. If you're to the point where you really understand all of the materials and you're getting every review question correct it still won't take but 10 or 15 seconds per page to do the review questions from prior sections. So you really won't be saving yourself much time, if any, and you're losing out on a great chance to reinforce the materials that much better.

Thomas:

Wow!!! Your class is fast moving, which is wonderful. You guys are testing early

Are you ready for your testing?

Karen

So today our class is now officially down to 4 people. And we will be testing next wednesday. We started off the morning doing our pre trips. Then spent the rest of the morning practicing all our backing until lunch. After lunch we did our pre trips again. Then took turns driving for the rest of the afternoon. Finished the day with our post trips and back to the hotel. Half day tomorrow being spent in the classroom

Rick:

Mine was a big, blank thing. All it had on it were the trucking companies that had checked my background.

Sam:

Sorry to hear that. Sometimes instead of going in a straight line to get what we want, we go in a circle. I call it the scenic route. I had to do it myself w/my trucker career choice.

I received my HireRight a few days ago. Nothing scandalous lol

Take care & let us know if u find a job at another trucking company

I don't know if you have to sign in or if you have to start the test first but try this. I just click on the link labeled "The High Road Online CDL Training Program" and it takes me to a page that lists all of the sections individually. I can then click on any page within the sections as well.

Try this link:

Jim J:

Thx. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I was doing it the way you said & I also get questions from what I already tested on.

I am trying to hit the Logbook section only cause I am very confused about that. I get on a semi roll & I get questions from all the other sections also.

Click on CDL training materials tab at top of home page. Scroll down, click CDL practice tests, choose a category. I just tried it and it worked for me. I hope that helps.

Tractor Man:

Thank you, I knew there had to be a way lol.

Hello. Someone else asked a great question on here. Is there a way to concentrate on just one portion of the High Road Training Program? I wanna concentrate solely on Logbook & Pre Trip before trucking school starts.

Thanks for any assistance.

Roehl Orientation on the 21st

Got a call from the recruiter at Roehl this morning, and have all the paperwork needed to get that rental car picked up tomorrow evening. I asked about bringing my compliment of "trucking gear" with me to orientation. Bring it now, or get it later? She told me to bring it with me. I hope the rental car is large enough! I over-prepare....

Charles:

I replied to the wrong post lol. When I thought I was gonna train outta state (WI), I was gonna bring my own car. I bring everything but the kitchen sink. I would need my own bus.

Four months ago I was in the same boat. Just take it one day at a time and you should make it just fine.

Roehl Company-Sponsored Program - Day to Day

So this morning we met in the classroom. Then spent the morning in the simulator doing hazard driving (weather, construction). Then took lunch. After lunch we went out to the trucks. Did our pre trip. Then for the afternoon our instructors did a surprise pre test on our driving and backing (for testing out early next) everything went well. The 4 of us should be testing next wednesday. Just have a couple things to work on before test day. Got done with that, did our post trip, and it was time to go back to the hotel

Thomas:

Wow, you & your class rock. Congrats!!!

Hazmat Dilemma

Yep good luck Karen, you paid might as well finish...Good luck in school as well ! you got this ...DMV window people aren't the all-and-knowing they lie to think they are! Had traded cars years ago, no cash. They tried to charge me sales tax on value of the trade. I said (politely) ain't no way I'm paying 'double' taxes, when I paid them buying my original car! Supervisor came over and agreed with me, saved me 100s ! lol

Stevo VWBusman:

Thanks!!! Yeah, there is never a dull moment at the DDS. I think I have been there more in the last few months than I have in my entire life lol.

Take care

Hazmat Dilemma

double-quotes-start.png

I showed up at GA DDS bright & early today. First I was told that I couldn't take Hazmat cause I just have a CDL permit. She asked her supervisor who told her how to "trick the computer system" so I could test. That's what I'm talking about.

Took the test & passed it!!! It won't show up on my CDL till i (hopefully) get a permanent one. I also won't pay the testing fee till then. Don't know how other states are, but In GA you keep a paper CDL permit till u pass the driving test.

Thanks everyone for the great advice. My questions have only just begun. I start trucking school Mon.

My next stop is $1 short stack pancakes from IHOP for St. Patrick's Day. Just have to wear green

Take care everyone.

What I read from that is who taught you to cheat us out of another cdl renewal liscence fee when you would if you had waited had to pay another fee to get your cdl hazmat endorsement added to your current cdl.

Steven:

From what I understood, I will have to pay the fee when I go back to get my permanent CDL. I was trying to pay now, cause I didn't want my results to cancel out & I have to retake the test lol.

Roehl Company-Sponsored Program - Day to Day

Ok so I missed yesterday. We started out most of the morning in the classroom going over the "roehl way" of driving. Then spent about 30-45 minutes working on the pre trip before lunch. After lunch we worked on the pre trip again and then spent the rest of the day out driving around town, some back County roads, and highways.

Today, we started out doing our pre trips. It started snowing and wind gust up to 40+ mph so the instructors had us pull in the shed to finish them. Then we went out and spent the morning driving around town. After lunch we went over the in cab of the pre trip again. Then we hit the backing range working on our offset and alley backs. Then it was back out to the roads. Instructor had us take the highway for a few minutes so that we could feel what it was like to drive in high speed crosswinds. Then we went back to driving around town. After that it was time to go back to the hotel

Thomas:

I always look forward to your posts. How is driving, backing & pre trip going?You're almost thru your 2nd week!!!

I took my Hazmat & passed it today. Trying to get my duckies in a row for my first day of trucking school Mon.

Steve & Rick:

Yeah, I'm gonna take the Hazmat test tomorrow. I invested in my background check & it's my last week of unemployment. If I don't do it now, I'll regret it.

Thanks so much.

Trucker diet need help

Hello everyone. There are some great replies on here!!! I have lost 50 lbs & I was already wondering about eating on the road. I'm real picky & wasn't going to drive all over creation looking for food. Not to mention factoring in parking for a big truck.

I have to do exercise as I can, if that means laps around the truck. Provided I pass trucking school lol

Take care.

Hazmat Dilemma

I would get your HazMat regardless of Roehl requiring it or not. You may not work there forever. I understand that lots of loads qualify as HazMat that you may never think of. For example. Certain quantities of laundry bleach or household cleaners going to a Grocery Store. If you have studied the High Road, the HM test is a piece of cake. Go and get itgood-luck.gif

Tractor Man:

That's what I was thinking & I have been studying the High Road Hazmat like crazy.

Thank you.

Hazmat Dilemma

I am preparing to take the Hazmat test. Already had my background & fingerprints clear.

My Roehl recruiter said I don't need that endorsement. So if I don't take the test, does the background clearance expire? I would take the test not to lose the $86 I paid lol.

Helpful responses would be appreciated. I am a newbie w/nothing but questions. Thanks.

HAZMAT?

Bring that paper with you to the DMV

Phil:

I actually went by DDS w/my letter today. They said if I'm in the system, I can test for Hazmat.

Tuesday is their busiest day since they're closed on Mon. I went home & did my application online & printed it out. I'll be ahead w/that when I go back. I am going either Wed or Thur when it's not such a circus.

Thanks.
