Arrrgggg..the logbook section of high road is kivking my butt.

Thanks old school and Errol..I think I need to start it from the beginning again I guess..the log book section that is....I can't really figure out what I'm not getting....the split sleeper berth does seem to add to it but It just isn't clicking...and I've learned so much from the rest of the program it's very frustrating.

'Withheld adjudications' and 'not guilty' count on your driving record?

IF you were found guilty or plead to a lesser charge you need to disclose it if you were found not guilty. It will not be on your record.

Slow rolling to the dock

When you guys/gals talk about slow rolling to the dock while on sleeper or off duty so as not to start your 14 hour clock, exactlly how slow do you have to go? {less than 5mph?} For example if the shipper wont let you stay on the property after being loaded ,could you creep down the road to park untill it was time?

DMV road test experience

Nice update Ozzy but you did not run the red light, as long as the front of the vehicle crosses the stop bar(white line) you have entered the intersection lawfully. Good job, Chilly

For the newbies out there that want to know what Roehl offers; this is what I have experienced.

4. They have several different hometime programs. The one I chose is a 7/7, where I am out for 7 days, then home for 7 days. This worked out for me, because I have a husband with a steady income, and can afford to work "part-time"; and because it is allowing me to get reacquainted with my family again. Even though I was out the least amount of time possible in this industry, it has still been a big transition for my family. They also have a 14/7 and a 7/4 & 7/3 plan and of course the national plan

Nice update Julia but I have a question...doing the 7 on 7 off thing I would guess you are slip seating? and if so do you drop the truck at a terminal? or how does that work. and wat about the 7/3 and 7/4 plans do you take the truck home with those or not? tanks in advance chuck.
