Diluted urinalysis test

You've got nothing to worry about. I was sent for a test right after I came out of the bathroom. I couldn't fill the cup and I had to sit in the waiting room...being watched the whole time...drinking 16 ounce bottles of water for over an hour until I felt ready to go. I peed clear, no yellow at all, and I passed. I think you'll be fine.

Leaving For School On Midnight May 4th

Doug, has CRST contacted you for payment yet? I think the debt is the issue here. I've never seen a non-compete be binding on someone in your situation but unfortunately it doesn't have to be, CRST can still be a large PITA. Take care of the debt and your other problems go away. I wouldn't waste one dime on talking to a lawyer about the non-compete but if CRST tries to hit you up for anything close to $7,000 it might be worth your while to talk to a lawyer then and see about negotiating that figure down just a wee bit and by a wee bit I mean about 40-50%

Waiting patiently, hoping for advice.

ALL of the suspensions are due to the accident where I was on 2's.

From what you've said it seems like they were due to you not completing traffic school. On 1/19/18 how did you find out you were driving with a suspended license?

Any schools left that train on manual transmission?

Did you look at C1 in Ft. Worth? I know as of this April they were still training with manual transmissions.

Does “American Truck Driving School” Drug Test?

I didn't attend American Truck Driving School but I read online that they train students for a couple of mega carriers so you might want to play it safe and assume you'll be tested.

DOT physical and prior use of prescription medication

Clem, just stop. You are looking to get away with something. You're fishing for someone to tell you it's ok to lie because it's convenient for you. You have a history of depression, if asked that question the answer is 'yes' whether you like it or not.

Cannabis Testing, Swift, NYC Ban on Cannabis Testing

I am wondering how trucking companies get away with discrimination for those who use prescribed medications? My qualification for Swift was just reversed since I explained to the recruiter that I used marijuana under Doctor's advice for just a few days.

How dumb do you think people are? Let me guess what really happened. You've been smoking for years including during your last driving job, you knew you had to have an explanation for it for Swift so you went to the weed doc to get a script hoping that would cover up your years of toking up. Did you go with glaucoma or back pain?

Yeah, uh huh. You didn't ask for it, the "doctor" made you do it.

Why does this offer come now?

There's no harm in at least talking with him about it. If you love trucking that's one thing but feeling you have to stick with it could potentially limit you.

Prime Upgrade Freeze

Also for anyone who doesn't know, Prime is replicating the main terminal and putting it in Salt Lake City. It too will have indoor courts, spa, gym, theater and much more.

Oh Yeah? Well we have a pond...for a couple of days after it rains. It always ends up between the yard and the drivers lounge.

I'm surprised anyone ever leaves your terminal to do any actual driving.

Leaving For School On Midnight May 4th

Doug, sorry to hear they sent you home but it's not the end of the world. I went to school with 3 people who had the same thing happen to them at CREngland. They all passed and are driving now, 2 with PAM and 1 with Swift although I think the Swift guy may still be in training. Someone else will give you a shot if you want it, CRST's loss.

General Transmission Fault

Rainy, yep. 2017 International with the Allison. I can deal with resetting the trans I just don't want it to decide it doesn't want to be in gear while I'm driving.

General Transmission Fault

Thursday I had a GEN TRANS FLT error message as I was trying to get underway after finishing my 30 minute break . I couldn't get into gear. Our road rescue sent me a reset procedure that fixed the issue and told me to let them know if it happened again. Has any one ever had this happen while they were moving?

I'd reset now. If you're going to be idle anyway may as well make the best of it by scoring fresh clock.

New driver legs and but are killing me!

Lowering the seat helped me a lot. Also if you keep your wallet in your back pocket try driving without it there. That helped me a lot too.
