Keeping It Between the Lines

Thanks everyone. I've been to a No-Name company school before. However, 1. They tried to force you into a lease right off the bat. And 2. The instructor my group had, well.... he started yelling right off the bat. Even though it was our first time driving a truck. Which of course made things a bit overly tense. But I thank everyone for their responses.

Keeping It Between the Lines

I'll be heading to Wisconsin soon and I just had a quick question. It may seem silly but I was hoping to get some tips before getting behind the wheel. Soooo......

How do you make sure to keep the trailer straight when driving? One piece of advice I have been given by a friend who drives is he lines his left hand up with the center line and it usually keeps straight. Just wanted everyone else's opinion becaise thats the biggest fear I have. Get out to drive on the road for training, the trailer gets out of hand and hits a car or God forbid a person.....

Roehl driver training from start to end.....

WT,

I kind of stumbled on your story after I've begun the process of getting my DOT Card and heading to my court house in the next week or 2 to get my CLP. I've had my CLP before, but you're right. The program they offer on here has given me more confidence on taking the tests. Also, this is the first thread I've found that the person has went through Roehl and did a play by play of the training they received. This was a great read as well and I am nervously confident once I get in a truck I'll be okay. Although backing and making sure to keep the trailer in the lane with me still makes me a bit nervous. So, I want to say thank you for this thread. It really inspired me and made me feel.like everything is gonna be ok and to just breathe. Anyway, although I'm going to van hopefully we will see each other out there on the road one day.
