First day of orientation in pleasant hill was mostly paper work and video but we did do our drug screen which consisted of pee and hair test. The instructor is a pretty cool guy.

CDL Training

Thanks for the input guys. I'm in my second week day 4 is tomorrow. We straight line backed monday started at 7 am and ended at 5:30 pm, Tuesday we off set backed start time 7 end time 5:30, today we parallel parked start and end time was the same. We got in a lot of practice on all 3 skills, we have 5 in our class and have 3 trucks. Tomorrow we go on the back roads to do some driving and shifting. There will be 3 students in one truck and 2 in the other truck. We will begin at 7 and end at 5:30, so we should get in some pretty good driving time. Lord willing all will go well.

CDL Training

I am currently finishing up my first week of training (3 week course) I got my permit on the first attempt thank the good lord, but four out of six people in our class did fail but that I feel is because they didn't study the curriculum. Next week we will get in the truck and start straight line backing and doing our pre trip. All of the instructors seem to care and want to see you succeed. They haven't praised or put any company down they tell us to pick the best situation for us. I'm leaning more toward a flatbed company, but a question I do have is what can I expect to make my first year and yes I know it depends on a lot of different factors like cpm, mileage etc. Any other advice or input is appreciated. thanks in advance
