Postcards from the Road! (Post Yours Please!)

Looks like an international 9800. I liked the Schneider livery when they ran them.

Just finished training at Swift Academy, Lewiston, ID

Why Lewiston? and not Richmond? if your from NY. Are you moving out there?

I'm outside Philly. I will most likely be heading to Richmond. I thought of Phoenix, because I have family there. Though, I've decided to stick with Richmond. So I can get it done. Of course, once everything opens up again.

Lewiston, this is where I’ll be going. Well, once Covid quarantine is lifted. So good to hear about good experiences as I’m nervous about everything. And excited but nervous. Hope you’re keeping safe out there.

I finished the Lewiston, Idaho Swift CDL Training Academy last Friday. My experience was very good, even considering a major misunderstanding.

I will only say that if a person is serious about learning a serious career, has a strong work ethic (is willing to *work* for it), can listen to instruction and take a little initiative, that person will succeed here. I was very happy with the curriculum, with the instructors, and with the equipment.

I give Swift Academy Lewiston 5 stars of 5.

DOT physical question

Start using your CPAP. Get used to it. You might find a world of difference in energy. You are 5’1” and 250. Where ever you go, The company is going to order a sleep study.

What you need to do is show compliance in using your CPAP. I was able to get a 1 year med card after 90 day usage log.

When can I get my CDL permit????

There are a few of us on here from around the country in the same situation, including me in PA. The CVTA is lobbying state governments to open their DMVs for Commercial licensing/premits.

In PA, our governor extended the stay at home order until May 8th.

With the Minnesota lock down on government due to Covid 19, no DMV's are open to take the written skills test and get my permit, thus cannot go to any school. Does anyone have any idea when they will open the DMV for written tests since trucking is deemed necessary? Thanks in advance.

Trucking Will Survive This Pandemic

The biggest roadblock (pun intended) is people testing for their CLP written. DelcoDave and I are stuck in PA. We can't test for our CLP because the state DMV is closed. If people were able to get their CLP like Rob D. They can at least go forward.

Have the outfits with schools started their orientations yet? Are DMVs open to taking your test?

Im in the same situation with my state’s DMV.

Rob, all the best and good luck!

Good luck, I am hoping to join Prime in the reefer division. I have to wait until the DMV opens to get my CLP in Nevada, though.

Free lunch at......the scalehouse!?

rofl-1.gifgood-luck.gif

Sounds like a trap or some type of DOT sting operation to me. There is no such thing as a "Free Lunch."

More likely a free sandwich while we perform a Level I, II, or III Inspection while you wait.

Sorry I have a conspiracy theory mindset.

CA, IL & NY issue, "Stay-at-home" orders.

Our PA Governor delayed the closures until Monday. The office got overwhelmed by Waivers to stay open.

Pa Gov's Delay

PA shut down all non essential places. I’m supposed to start calling places to see if they are open before I waste my time going. things are changing by the minute so a place that was going to be open tomorrow might not be open by the time I get there.

In times like this, misinformation runs rampant. Try to confirm with multiple sources and provide links, if possible. Feeding the fire, doesn't help anyone.

both sides are playing it, and trying to capitalize on it. Fox and MSNBC are good at it.

True... I'm trying to stay non-political with my response to this madness, but there's certainly a political twist intertwined in this whole thing.
