Opportunity With Owner Operator

I'm a newbie so looking for some wisdom. Having an opportunity to team with an owner operator, getting paid 15 percent of the loads is that a good deal? I'm not sure, so hopefully it's not a foolish question, I just don't know

Does anyone know if you have a CDL permit driving with a licensed CDL driver, if you can drive the truck loaded or not. It's been told to me that you can not with just a permit

Flatbed vs van

Does anyone know if backing a flatbed is a lot different than backing a van trailer? I heard it was, but I'm really not sure.

Why I am becoming a truck driver later in life

Ray, I do t know how old you are, but I like you left a really great paying job, moved to another state in hopes of helping my son get into a better place (left Cali) came to Oklahoma. Due to being a little over 55 your put out to pasture in the job world, so I started driving a school bus, I decided I wanted to be as far away as I could from minute to minute screaming kids. This is something I've always wanted to do, but circumstances didn't allow it. So now I'm taking a shot, now that I'm older. I'm still in school but you CAN do this and I'm sure will enjoy it!! Keep it going no matter what!!!

CDL TESTING

That was good advice! I didn't really wanna do that for the same reasons u stated. I can tell u how to get the job done on the outside but I get inside and it's a new game. Having only 1 turn per day really puts a damper on things and now apparently the instructors have given up on me, so they no longer tell me what I'm doing wrong. They ignore me and wait til I'm so frustrated that I get out as I know others want their 1 turn as well. They too paid what I did. Regardless if this is a dog eat dog job, it seems the right thing to do, so everyone gets that 1 chance to practice!!

CDL TESTING

I am scheduled to test on Tuesday and although the school KNOWS I cant pass the pad maneuvers they are forcing me to go. I apparently have become confused. I was told by another classmate that if I cant get the parallels or ally dock that I could do my 2 pull ups and 2 get outs, when it came time for those and blow the horn, knowing I couldnt get them. Depending on passing both straight back and offset without any points, I would still pass the pad test. Does anyone know if thats the truth or is it considered auto fail, when I'm pretty sure I wouldn't pass to begin with. Not being on the negative side, but I just can't learn from watching those before me, when I watch for 20-30 mins of a mess. Unfortunately I have been there too long and they want me out, as I believe they have overbooked and the one chance a day we get just doesnt seem to be enough. Any opinions?

Need help with backing

Thank you Susan! They did have a taped middle cone for a short while then stated they took it away calling it a crutch, I don't get that but what can I say? It's so hot out there I drink a lot of water, maybe I'll stick an empty bottle in the middle, at least I should be able to identify it as the cone with a foreign object...hopefully
