Jim Palmer cdl training

I'm glad to see others are having good luck with the recruiters.

Bad luck here, the recruiter I got apparently didn't care to read over my application too well.

I had checked best method of contact - cell phone. She called my landline (home phone) so naturally I missed the first call.

Happened to catch the second call the next day about 6 p.m. my time, she said there must be some kind of connection problem because she'd been trying to reach me - lol, ya think.

I blew it off and tried to talk to her, but she instantly seemed to want to talk me out of OTR driving.

(been interested in trucking for several years now - lots of folks seem to try and discourage it)

I mentioned I had a wife early in our conversation ... then she asked if I had kids??

After that it seemed she was more concerned with talking me out of a job vs. recruiting me as a driver ??

I dunno, I have apps in other places too, (so I'll keep searching for the best fit for me) but if I do end up reaching out to Jim Palmer again - I'll be requesting someone else.

Just disappointing I guess :( ... JP was on the top of my list.

Been with my wife for 18 years, its a stable relationship .. my career path isn't going to change that, I'll carry on my search :)

CDL Training Material

I personally think the program is top notch.

My irritation is with myself, and my own learning abilities. ex. - not reading slow enough, nor clearly enough, rushing through the quizies, letting noise distract me, etc. I appreciate this program, and the standards within its written. I have always had those struggles though, not just here, ha - likely a slight learning disability, I don't know, lol

I know the word except, got me a few times. But it taught me to slow down!

Thanks so much for all the hard work and dedication you devote to helping others, Sincerely Appreciated!

It makes total sense that you want to put out a premiere teaching program, and I believe you indeed have accomplished your goal.

I'm currently 22% of the way through, with a score of 99% - your teaching methods are clearly working for me.

I'm taking my time, and am hoping to breeze through the BMV test when the time comes. All thanks to the High Road Program.

imo, I think studing the states book would be far harder for me to grasb and retain .. I'm just that average student, and always have been - but, here I'm able to learn with an above average score.

Couldn't have done it without your help!

Obviously I don't know your personal settings, but for me ... I was getting off to a hard start with the High Road Program myself.

For me, it was just a matter of having absolute quite and alone time to myself.

I have 2 kids, and a wife. Background noise was killing my score. After resetting my score twice, and getting slightly irritated, I found, finding those quite times and spaces ... was extremely helpful!

I'm happy to report that I'm now making good progress.

Good Luck, You got this! James
