Two year old speeding ticket 24 will anyone hire ?

Wrong.

3 years. Was your license suspended? Any other tickets in the last 3 years? Did you have to take a class. 25 over is a lot. Look through the company reviews on here. You’ll get an idea of what your going to have to deal with.

How fast is the speed limit on the game nterstate?? Did you get to go to traffic school?? Your probably fine!

I received a speeding ticket two years and eight months ago I was going 70 in a 45 on the interstate. I’m trying to go through a company that helps you get your CDL plus training I was wondering would anyone hire me being that this is the only thing on my record at all?

Bullitt's New Journey

Thank you for following.

I'm headed to PennDOT on Friday with my CLP application and self-cert form. PennDOT will give me a KTA (Knowledge Test Authorization) form. This form is used to tell PennDOT what Class, restriction removals, and endorsements I intend to pursue/test for.

Next week, I'll be reviewing and studying up on anything that needs work. Thereafter, test for permit.

And off to school in November, I hope.

Good! About time to get after this thing wholeheartedly, Bullitt!

Still following your journey.

13’6” clearance!!!

Tell me about it. Especially those old septa rail overpasses. It seems once a month a truck gets stuck under one.

PS possibly meet up and chat sometime? Email me at tradewindvw@gmail

Just curious because I live in the Philly area and see a lot of overpasses listed at 13’6” As well as many shorter ones which I know could not be driven under

Birth Certificate and Passport Processing delay woes during Covid. :(

Yeah, i wish it was that easy for me. I would have to travel over 700 miles to do it in person.

I do not know what Vitalchek is, I was just saying I know on Monday I could go to my county courthouse and for $10 or $15 could have a copy of my birth certificate.

In order to use Vitalchek, you need birth information beforehand. Counties use Vitalchek for out of state online requests. Expedited passport requests are on hold to due covid unless death and some other emergency.

I’m giving of what the picture is now due to Covid and Real ID demand.

If you know where you were born, what hospital or what county, it is as easy as going to that county seat and getting a copy for about $10. Your birth certificate is already a public record. As for getting a passport that can all be done online but does take time. In the past is a passport was needed in a hurry for travel or other reasons, contacting your representative or senator what get you in touch with someone to help speed process.

Birth Certificate and Passport Processing delay woes during Covid. :(

This is a heads up to anyone needing proof of citizenship for licensing/employment needs.

Due to Covid and read ID demand. Vitalchek is having long processing times on Birth Certificates. I’ve been waiting over a month for mine. When I recently checked my status, they canceled my order. Getting through to customer service took a while too. ( I was born in Chicago, and now live in the Philadelphia ‘burbs)

When, I learned of my Birth Cert cancellation, I mailed in my renewal for my Passport (It expired earlier this year). Thankfully the office renewal is just in Philly, so my check cleared a few days after I mailed it. Now to wait for Passport.

Make sure that you have your proof of citizenship. If you need it, you better start the process because you might end up with unexpected delays.

PS I’m heading to my parents house today, to see if I can search for my birth certificate. I don’t remember them giving it to me. So there’s a chance it’s there.

Buying my first truck need some info

So your financing it? What rate did you get? Are you putting a down payment on it?

You really need to take the time and learn about financing. You need to understand how interest and principle are computed to make your monthly payment amount.

If you have not signed any papers yet, I would reconsider this move until you educate yourself better. You will always pay more for monthly payments with interest than straight cash.

Hey I'm in the process of getting a truck. and the price is 47000 for a freightliner 2017 with 530,000 miles on it the price on it is 49,000$ but I get all the paper work done and then I find out its 75,000$ at the end after I pay it off. is that normal or am I getting screwed. Thanks

Can't sleep while truck is moving

I have a feeling. If you are asking here, you did not like his response? Mentor and you only make money when the wheels are turning. So you need to find ways to get used to the truck sway, and or take every opportunity to get rest when you can.

Hello everyone, I recently started training with a mentor. I told him I can't sleep in the sleeper berth while he is driving. I tend to get bounced around back there while he is driving.Would it be unreasonable to ask him to pull over and park for a few hours so I can sleep? All suggestions are appreciated. Thank you

Cpap compliance 30 or 90 days?

I just want to say that there a number of people on TT that use a CPAP, me included. I know when I first started using a CPAP It felt very un natural and invasive. Though, with support and encouragement, I got used to it and felt the benefits of using it. MY energy levels were greatly improved. I use it every night. I avg 6.5 hours per night now.

If your close to 70% for 90 days. That’s not using your cpap every night, min. 4 hours per session.

What type of cpap you have? Mask typr?
