Well, getting ready to head out this evening. EXCITED!!! One quick question. Is a 32" duffel bag a decent size to bring on to trainers truck? I'll have that and a backpack.

Rainy. I'm the type of person who appreciates someone being blunt and straight forward. I am the same way. Thank you. Once again, I really appreciate everyone's input on this matter. I wish you all safe travels.

I'm not in any way trying to get anyone to rally behind me. I just want to hear everything I can whether good or bad. You all make valid points and that plays a huge part in my decision. Like I said earlier, the input I am receiving is appreciated. And Paul, I hope I am out training by the time you get there. LOL

I really want to thank y'all for the replies and for your time to do so. TBH, I have seriously been considering the lease option but I plan on running hard as getting home often is not a big deal. Don't get me wrong, home time is important. LOL. My understanding is that it is a walk away lease. Does that mean if at anytime I'm not feeling it as an l/o, I could go company? On average, what would you say a l/o flatbedder profits in a year? I really want to know as much as possible to help me make my final decision. Once again, thank you guys for taking the time to respond.

Also, do you apply for passport during orientation or anytime after?

Turtle, in your opinion, what are the pros and cons vs. company and lease? What region do you work and approximate miles per week as company driver? Home time?

Thank you for the input. Greatly appreciated.

I had Danny for PSD backing too. He's one of the top trainers at Prime and gets awards constantly. He really taught me the backing to pass the test.

Of course, no offense...backing with a FB was easier than reefer.

FBers are die hards lol they love it so I'm sure you will get a great trainer.

Prime has a new way of matching students up... Personality and goals surveys. Can't wait to see if it truly works.

Good luck

Hello all. This is my first post. I begin PSD at Prime this coming Monday(8/21/2017). Want to go flatbed and am curious if any one out there is a flatbed instructor/trainer. I'm told there aren't many. Thank you.
