Day 1 Trailiner Springfield, MO

Yeah just two of us. The previous class had 4. This company has about 150 drivers. We all live within 100 miles of Springfield,MO. Thats companypolicy so when come thru the terminal we got time to see home for a few hours at least.

Day 1 Trailiner Springfield, MO

Really, really, really good day!! Spent the first 2 hours learning the pre-trip inspection process and phrasing. Our lead instructor will also be our examiner when the time comes (yeah, he's a legit examiner; this isn't shady) so he was telling us exactly the phrasing that he wants to hear. I thought that was pretty helpful. Then from 10 am to 5:30 we learned and practiced straight-backing and offset backing. There's only two of us in this class so we were able to take a lot of turns each. Spent the last half hour learning the log book. If all goes well tomorrow, we may even get a chance to get on the road. So far, I'm very impressed with Trailiner. When I got home, my HazMat approval letter was waiting for me in the mailbox. So far, I'm happy with my new career.

Friday the 13th! Really?

Orientation is tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. which means my trucking career will start on Friday the 13th. Is that a bad omen?

Prime Day 1

Man, I am sooooo glad I went with Trailiner instead of Prime now. All that may change once I start my classes in September but so far it sounds like I made the right choice to avoid the big company. Keep us posted it will be interesting to see how different our experiences are.

Well, that just leaves learning how to drive now...

Spent the day taking the written, getting fingerprinted, getting the physical, having my CPAP machine read, getting my permit and signing the contract. I guess all there is to do now is learn how to, ya know, drive the blasted thing. I think the hard part might be over. dancing-dog.gif

Thanks for study material

Just passed the written exam (don't know why it's called that anymore-I didn't write a thing). Lowest score was 94 (airbrake) and even managed a 100 on tanks. Thanks again. See you on the road.

Keep getting tripped up by question #42

Thanks. Turns out I was reading the question wrong. Got it straight now. Thanks again.

Keep getting tripped up by question #42

Can someone clear this up for me once and for all? What is required on every commercial vehicle? Is it a first aid kit or fire extinguisher or first aid kit, spare fuses, fire extinguisher and reflecting triangles?
