Any word of advice appreciated.

Just FYI,

My interview was at 2:00 and I didn't get back to my car till 4:38 , it wasn't rushed and very informative and detailed. Even showed me around and their trucks are new equipment.

Stay positive and roll with the punches as you stated. Thank you again :-)

That's truly Awesome,

I Will check out the information this morning too.

I will keep you all updated, So far I can tell you the interview was very laid back and professional.

They told me about the company , how it started and their growth and even gave me an opportunity to ask any questions I had.

I go next Wednesday for drug, background ect. And then they said they will send me to work one there's and introduction class then to ivy tech/ sage I think.

I will try and update as I continue on... Any feedback back of anyone going thru ivy tech would be super too.

Thank you ever so much for the positives, that's means so much, as you know, to us who are getting started.

Any word of advice appreciated.

Into my 4th week and 2nd day for PAM at C1 Trucking School. I was dismissed. I was heartbroken because I thought for sure I had my cdl at state very soon.

I finally got in contact with who could tell me and it's because of an accident I had in Jan. That was I was not ticketed for but paid for their car for failure to yield. I got caught up in some ice in CVS parking lot.

Is there any advice you all might have since I have all this training and pre trip in my head to get my cdl.

I don't think I can afford a school and wondering if you all advise a person to keep on or wait. It was in my car.

Falling behind......

Hello Truthers,

Thanks to you all I'm in cdl school and passed pretrip, 4 point and straightline. It felt like forever getting the straightline.

Any tips on offset concepts and parallel would be appreciated. I have a great trainer but my anxiety seems to rear it's head when they have me behind the wheel and I'm so scared of making an error.

He says I'm in an accelerated class because I'm behind my peers and classmates and need to get this. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I started school may 31st. Thank you all.

Am i being overly sensitive?

Hi phoenix, I am new here and have just 1 post but I'm the only 1 who has replied to it by searching more witch I probably should have done in the first place and not bother you all, I know you all are busy.....

With that being said, I am learning from your posts and the others on here and this site in general. I feel blessed and I appreciate all your sharing you and everyone does. Thank you!!

License....?

After searching MO dmv I think I found my answer and hope it applies to commercial as well........

Pass the written permit test and driving tests. The DOR will waive your skills and written tests if your driver's license is valid or has been expired for 184 days or less.

Have a great day all!!
