From Switzerland to South Dakota Full Time Traveler Resident?

, but this is not a requirement in the same way as possession of a US license for 1 year is a government stipulated requirement.

This may have changed in some states. The government websites for Iowa and South Dakota don't seem to mention this requirement alongside the rest; in the past I know Iowa's did.

Not getting something fully right ≠ making things up.

From Switzerland to South Dakota Full Time Traveler Resident?

My reply may have gotten lost in the mix, but it's really important before you leave Switzerland to get legal translations of your driver's license, driving record, proof of employment, and physical address there. Legal translations get notarized; by law trucking companies need to verify where you were and your employment history.

Also, call recruiters directly, I had no problem getting answers to this stuff that way. Several had said there would be no problem, others wanted to see a newly active U.S. driver's license for a certain period of time first, but there were a number that said this scenario in itself wouldn't be an issue.

Hi! Your obstacle is more than you think. You are required to have 1 year of recent US drivers license and 3 years of verifiable employment.

Each state has its own requirements, but when I researched into this same scenario, most states say you only need an active driver's license and 1-2 years of driving experience (not necessarily recent). Trucking companies could have their own requirements, Prime told me (a few years ago) they wanted to see 3 years of holding a license again (maybe having a foreign license could change that, I didn't have one), CRE told me they only require whatever your state requires to get your CDL.

Werner Enterprise Question

double-quotes-start.png

Out of curiosity, why do you think Werner isn't listed in the Trucking Truth CDL Programs page? Does it mean that Trucking Truth doesn't approve of their program or just hasn't reviewed it?

I just haven't reviewed their program. I wasn't sure if they had a training program or not, to be honest. I'm glad this came up. I will look into it and see if we can get them on board.

Check into Hirschbach too, their info could use an update, they seem like a good one.

Truck Stop Follies and Assorted Stupidity

Ryan B. said:

It's possible that the driver is able to read, was fully paying attention, saw the sign, and made the choice to proceed. "How," you ask? The driver doesn't know the height of the truck.

The responsible driver in your scenario would stop and ask themselves what would happen if the vehicle they didn't know the height of turned out to be too tall. You're trying to make an excuse where none exists.

Fairchild, Lynden, and Kivi Brothers are companies with runs to Alaska that were mentioned on here before, not sure if they would have them now.

ps: Next time you see him, ask him (or if you can?) explain his screen name; thanks!

Onsdag is Wednesday in the Scandanavian languages, the day of the Norse god Odin.

a day for kicking back with a long drinking horn of mead, chilling with ravens and wolves, well-deserved after Tirsdag's pillaging and plundering
