Accident?

Thanks Errol! I did inspect the trailer (with my trainer) and couldn't find any damage. The other guy took off (probably didn't want to risk a DUI) so hopefully this won't come back to bite me. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Accident?

I need some advice. Here is the situation. Last night about 11:15 l pulled off I-40 in Nashville heading for the TA to meet my brother (also a trucker). My trainer was in the back sleeping (as usual), traffic is a nightmare as a football game has just ended and it's raining. I get off the ramp and work my way over to the left lane to turn. While waiting on the light, a pedestrian walks up from behind and says I've hit him and takes a picture. I'm confused and tell him to follow me in to the truck stop (1/2 block on the left) so we can file a police report, at which he runs back to his car and drives off. I called safety and let them know what happened, but now I'm concerned. Wha should I do now? What should I have done differently?

TDI Oxford AL

I just started my second week (of 3) at TDI Oxford. For anyone considering a career in trucking, I can definitely say that this has (so far) been an incredible experience. The instructors are absolutely first rate. The curriculum is exhaustive and complete. If you are able to take and follow instructions, you WILL pass your CDL, which is the beginning of your training. I smoked my CDL written exams (with hazmat and tanks) and am confident that I'll pass the pre trip and drive tests. This school (and the High Road CDL training) has made this a fun and informative journey. I've already had multiple job offers and can now evaluate which company best suits me. I'm not committed to anyone, which is one of the major advantages of going with an independent school. At any rate, if you are contemplating a new career, this is one great way to go

Thanks to trucking truth

A BIG thank you to trucking truth for the highroad cdl training. I just passed my CDL written, with hazmat, air brakes, doubles/triples and passenger (dumb ass me forgot to ask for the tanker endorsement). I smoked all the tests thanks to the high road training program. Several people in my class struggled or failed some sections of the test ---- they didn't use the high road. I've exposed them all to Trucking Truth to "get on the High Road"

Update on Celadon CDL school?

Thanks for your input last shadow. I'm trying to do my due diligence now BEFORE committing to private school or a company training.

Update on Celadon CDL school?

I am considering Celadon company sponsored CDL training and TDI private school. Obviously both routes have pros and cons. In reviewing the TT forums, I don't see any recent comments about Celadons training. Does anyone have recent experience? I want to make the best, most informed decision. Any advice appreciated

Tips, Tricks, And Techniques For Rookie Drivers

Thanks to everyone here for the help with getting newbies (or wannabees) started out on the right track. I'm considering training schools now... pretty much decided on TDI (Oxford, AL) but still open to others and company sponsored training. Any thoughts on company paid vs self paid welcome. Again thanks to everyone here and especially Brett for creating this AWESOME site.
