Three Weeks into new Job and Career

DOT Transportation, Inc. - They are based out of Mt Sterling, IL. They have a Distribution Center in CA - I think it is north of San Diego though.

Three Weeks into new Job and Career

My trainer turned out to be a good one. He stays awake when I am driving and is somewhat patient; provides constructive feedback and is encouraging; answers my questions as best as he can, and is showing me the ropes as situations arise. I just need to remember as much as I can.

Three Weeks into new Job and Career

I just wanted to check in and thank you for the support. Back in the first part of June I was navigating my CDL class, applying to different carriers, and figuring out the type of driving I might prefer. Well, I landed on my feet driving a refrigerated trailer , in the equivalent of a regional position with DOT Foods. I have several more weeks of training with the trainer. I am enjoying the adventure so far.

Thank you.

8 Hour Split Sleeper Berth Rule

Here is one of the questions on the High Road CDL Program. I think the answer is zero time left. I have written out the info on a scratch sheet and still get the wrong answer.

How many on duty hours are remaining after the following has been logged (use a scratch sheet of paper if you need to):

On duty/not driving: 3 hours Driving: 4 hours Sleeper berth: 8 hours Driving: 7 hours Off duty: 2 hours 14 hour clock: 5 hours 11 hour clock: 4 hours

There is no time remaining on the drivers 11 or 14 hour clocks

Both the 11 and 14 hour limits have reset so all hours are now available

14 hour clock: 7 hours 11 hour clock: 6 hours

8 Hour Split Sleeper Berth Rule

I have been attempting to get the matter understood in the High Road Training material. However, there seems to be conflicting information. The eight hour rule simply extends the 14 hours and does not add any additional time - right? I have been over the material again and again and am not able to answer the questions correctly. Any assistance would be appreciated.

How to determine to Team Drive

At this point the subject is off of the original topic, but thinking about waiting/down time with the different types of hauling (Dry Box, Refer, Flatbed, and Tanker), which type has the highest percentage on average?confused.gif
