Offset backing issues

Some of the trucks have six wheels while the others have 4.(not including the trailer)

Unk., please clarify: by "two axle truck" do you mean a straight/ box truck? If so, that's like backing a really long car, or a bus.

And "three axle truck"? A semi actually has 5 ales, and a "joint" in the middle which makes backing and maneuvering 10 times harder.

A quick hint for starting your offset in a semi: start by turning the opposite of the way you want to go and back up. Watch in the lower convex mirror to see the drive wheels "point" right into the central Vee of the landing gear, stop, then turn your steering wheel all the way over in the other direction from where you started. Then back up and let the tractor swing around to be straight with the trailer.

I'mma just go by unknown for now. The school says usx does ua just like the dot. It been bout a month since I stopped smoking. I'm aware of the random test so I don't plan on doing it anymore. When it comes to stress over the road I'll address that issue as it happens.. driving helps keep me calm

That's if I pass my drug test. My question is this...

I was never a heavy smoker I'd probably smoke a gram (if that a month) now I have taken AT LEASt 10 dollar store test and 2 test from Walmart..passed all of them... I'm 5'10 don't really work out much.. but high metabolism.. what are my odds of passing or failing.. I was pre approved to work for us express

(I know ppl like to bash.. that's fine I guess. I was smoking to get some sleep from a stressful job and situations)
