High Road Training Program is Excellent

Mrs. B and I would like to commend Trucking Truth for offering the excellent training that the High Road CDL Training Program provides. We took our CDL permit tests this week and passed all the required elements as well as the endorsements with ease. We studied two or three sections per night for a few weeks leading up to beginning CDL school this week. The material was explained in a way that was easy to digest, and the repeating reviews made it easy to recall it at test time. Thanks again Brett! We have a training diary on the training forum. Looking forward to returning to driving in December when we finish our training at our local community college.

The B Team Returns to the Road

Wow, this has been a busy week. On Tuesday and Wednesday (days 2 & 3) we watched Training videos on general knowledge, combination vehicles, air brakes, doubles & triples, tankers & hazmat. We also took practice tests on all of the above. Our instructor wants everyone to get their CDP before the week is out so that we can get on the practice track. Mrs. B and I went to the DMV today and passed all of the required elements, plus all of the endorsements except school bus, which we decided not to take. We’re now CDP holders! Five of the ten in class now have permits and we started driving the track tonight and got to work on shifting on the 10 speed Internationals. Felt really good after a 30 year break. Excited to be returning to the road as a team in a few weeks. Stay tuned and we’ll keep everyone posted as we keep on trucking!

Day one done. We have a class of ten. Lots of paperwork, set expectations for the class, began studying on general knowledge section. Took a practice test that will be graded tomorrow. We need to go to DMV this week and test for CDP. We're going to try and test for all endorsements (doubles/triples, tank, and Hazmat) as well. Will update again tomorrow.

The B Team Returns to the Road

We are a husband/wife team returning to OTR after 30+ years away. Raised two young men and are ready to hit the road again. I am Jeff, Mrs. B is Cheryl. After the 30 year hiatus, we basically are starting over as rookies. We start CDL school tomorrow (9/18) at a local community college (Trenholm State). We have completed the High Road Training course with 98 & 99% scores. Thanks to Brent we'll probably do great in school. We had a dedicated route for a furniture company in the mid 80's while contracted as O/O's with North American. Looking to drive Team as company drivers this time. Have letters of intent from a couple of companies, we'll make a decision before we graduate in December. We'll do our best to keep a training diary so that other interested parties can follow our adventures. Thanks again to Trucking Truth for all the info and encouragement!

Why do so many people get booted out of trucking? This is why...

Are the last two sections of the HR Training needed if you are not planning on driving flatbed? None of the material in those sections appears in the Alabama CDL manual. Just curious. Starting CDL school at local community college on Monday (9/18). Scored 99% on HR on all sections up to last two. Looking forward to classes starting.
