Do Real Truckers Drive Automatic Transmissions? - article by Old School

Another awesome article! As I'm getting ready to to into a company training program the shifting thing is a major sticking point. By that I mean it is something I know I'll have to learn, but I also know Prime is going to all Autos soon. I have a friend who has been driving for 9 years and he is adamantly against Autos, but he is also one of those crazy flatbedders. I'm more of the opinion that I'd like to know how to drive one, it isn't a necessity now a days.

Prime: Let's do this!

Thank you everybody for the encouragement. Once I have a keyboard I have some thoughts I wanna put out there, but typing on my phone is a pain.

Merch?

There are plenty of small batch places out there, but like Jeremy said it isn't completely profitable. One of the Youtubers watch for gaming uses one company that works quite well, I'll try to find out who they go through.

2 accidents and a speeding conviction

You might have some issues, I'm sure the more experienced folks will give some advice. Mine is to call some recruiters, be truthful not only answer the questions they ask. If you don't have a CDL you will prolly want to go through a company paid training. Good luck!

Prime: Let's do this!

So I had my first trial in the process of getting my CLP today. The closest DMV that does CDL stuff is about 35 minutes away from me. I get there right as they opened and quickly get called to the counter, one problem though, I forgot my Birth Certificate. I shrug it off because it was a "my bad" and run home and get it. Another drive to the DMV and I am thinking I am good. Nope! For some reason their computer is requiring prove of my address. I have nothing in my car due to cleaning it recently, so another drive home and I grab it plus anything else that could possibly be needed. I hop back in my car to make another trip to the DMV and even though I have drove 2 hours and spent time in the DMV already I'm still in good spirits. Thankfully at this point all is good and I start my test.

I get a little discouraged because first couple questions but don't remember reading or studying any where. After those it was smooth sailing and I passed all test and tanker endorsement in no time all thanks to the High Road program and DMV Genie. The lady at the testing area was shocked at how easy and quickly I passed the test. I just smiled and said it was due to a really good online study program.

I have some more I wanna write but I'm hoping I'll have a keyboard later.
