FTA AsheboroNC

I noticed when you went they had a crappy motel now if you go thru drivers solutions and are going to PAM they put you in a stay lodge in Thomasville but it's clean and has a full sized fridge 2 counter top burners it's a good little ride over to Asheboro take your own transportation if possible if not get up early and find out who has a car and ask for a ride just be nice and offer gas money a lot of times people just say we are going to the same place no need for gas money there is a grocery store a taco bell and cook out out front of the hotel but if you walk down the side street in the neighborhood you will end up at Walmart there is a dmv not even a half a mile from the motel turn right at the light you'll come to a big shopping center the first store is an ABC store and walk along that side of the plaza and you'll find a door that opens up to a tag office and the dmv there is also a dmv by the school ask Pat or Randy for directions and they will be more than happy to help I hope this helps FTA is an awesome school

Drivers Solutions/PAM Transport Training Log.

Im headed to PAM next week Ill try to keep everyone updated on what its like i just finished training in Asheboro, NC

ok i arrived at PAM monday morning they split up the classes into 2 groups group 1 stays in the classroom group 2 goes to the range. the instructors are nice and don't yell at you unless you really screw up. the classroom instructors teach you safety everything we do is revolved around safety. at the end of the week we get onto another greyhound going anywhere in the U.S. so far this has been a great experience besides staying up for 34 hrs straight on a greyhound. Tontitown is a nice enjoyable place restraunts are all around the hotel we usually walk and explore this place when we get back to the hotel. the trucks are a lot better than what you probably had in c1 trainning which i went to FTA in AsheboroNC which didnt have too bad of trucks they were all Volvos. PAM has excellent opportunities and a great place to work. Yes they require 6 months team drivivng but you pick who you wish to team with as long as they live within 100 miles from you.

Swift, Prime, or Roehl

I ran into the same thing.... its basically what you wanna do prime is a very good company research all three before deciding especially with the contract of how long you gotta be employed with each company. if you are going for cdl training prime has the top of the line training. i couldnt get much training info out of swift. i hope this helps
