Pre trip- what is the DOT requirement

I usually do a 15 minute pre trip. And i.think that's probably industry standard.

We bare all!

I would never go into a place like that! Lol but seriously I'll keep an eye out for it. It sounds interesting and I'm single so I might stop and see what's happening.

Solo

Well I've been teaming for 6 months and now I think I want to go solo. I'm nervous about it because its alot more responsibility and trip planning. But I can't stay teamed. I don't sleep well when the truck is moving and although I'm a very social person I can't deal with not having any space. In case I didn't say I'm a new driver just six months of experience. Wish me luck on this new step in my career. Any advice would be appreciated.

Pretty much all companies require new drivers to otr for at least 6 months before they will look at you for dedicated and local.

Is 50 too old to start with pro-driver career?

The diabetes might be a problem if you need insulin. Most companies won't hire you if you need injections due to the fact most trucks don't come installed with a refrigerator to keep the insulin cool.
