The dreaded DOT Physical and permit test...here we go!

Tomorrow is the big day. Going to take my first DOT physical tomorrow afternoon. Not to worried about it, just ready to get it over with! Afterwards I will be taking my permit tests either Friday or Monday, depending on where i can catch our DMV lady. We have one person here that covers several surrounding towns, some of her offices have computers to test on some dont... Some of them work, some dont! Once I pass the physical and permit test Ill will be off to Swift training in Corsicana Texas and Im thankful for the opportunity and ready to get to it!

Now for my ugly moment of truth sorry.gif Honestly, at first, I was not thrilled about going to Swift. I sadly bought into all the swift haters and their dozen or so old crash videos and all the trash talking Swift goes thru these days. After talking to several drivers in person doing a little research myself and all the info here on TT, It dawned on me that not too long ago it was JB Hunt that was the target of every ones hateration and trash talking!

Swift

Dunno how accurate this was, but I asked my recruiter on Tuesday about apu and inverters and she told me "no apu, alot of the trucks dont have inverters, some of the newer ones do" and "If you want or need one, you have to buy it and it has to be installed by the shop" Has this changed from a year ago? I knows there is alot of 12 volt appliances out there, crockpots, tvs, fridge, coffee makers, toasters and the like. I could do with out one if need be. Them creature comforts tho...LoL Showin my greenhorn a lil but and I should worry about learning I know, but I like to plan ahead and at least have some sort of idea what I'm getting my self into!

Just a little FYI for you guys, Our fearless Governor in Texas finally signed the "texting while driving ban" it takes effect Sept 1st!!

Ive nearly been run over a few times on a motorcycle by someone with their nose buried in a phone not paying attention to where they are going.
