Ok to run with no brake lights or turn signal on trailer.


My first thought is how a pretrip might have been beneficial in this case, would have circumvented the whole nightmare.


Wow a pretrip what a great idea I should have thought about that. I did do a pretrip that is how I got green lights through every scale house from California to Florida. I do my pretrips and enroutes like i'm supposed to. This problem was not able to be picked up on a pretrip.

I had a headlight go out two days in a row, on my school bus, and it was caught by the same driver each day. Both worked during pretrip. Things blow and usually not when it's convenient.

I'm going off to Roehl 'cause I need to train!

EllieMae, If you come to the Marshfield location on may 6th, look for the scrawny bald guy in the funny hat and yellow hoodie. Hoody? Hūdē. Hootie and the Blowfish? I dunno. But that's me.

Soooo, did you pass? The suspense is killing me.

Going from a school bus driver to a tractor trailer driver

I’ve been a school bus driver, in upstate New York, for several years. Now I’m thinking of getting my CDL-A. If I attend a company sponsored training program, will the training be any shorter/easier since I already have a CDL-B?
