When do companies add to my driving record?

Do you mean your DAC report from hireright?

No company can add anything to your driving record.

Thanks for the info. That is exactly what I thought I was looking at in the first place. But now you’ve pointed me in the right direction

When do companies add to my driving record?

Good morning all. I’ve been driving for swift for almost 5 years now. I’ve had my share of mishaps. But overall it’s been a positive experience. I’ve recently checked my driving record and don’t see any of those mishaps. Do they wait until you leave the company to add to your file?

Best backing videos on YouTube?

The key to backing is don’t hit anything. That’s it. Take your time. Don’t rush. GOAL. Sometimes you’ll have to pull up multiple times. Sometimes you’ll have to drive around and start from the beginning. But as long as you don’t hit anything your backing is fine.

In CDL school getting really discouraged, is it time to call it quits?

I was complete garbage until test day. And even struggled more after going solo. I know it sounds cliche, but just keep reminding yourself that you can do it.

Choose trucking company per your location

That all depends on how you define home time. I’ve taken home time in Vegas, Atlanta, and probably 12 other places

Paid CDL - Automatic or manual transmissions.

Paul T. there isn’t a correct answer. I know ppl who’ve been driving manuals for years. Now they’ve been forced into automatics. I trained and tested in manual. Swift placed me in an automatic. I love my auto btw. There are so many opportunities that I don’t think having an auto restriction will have an effect on your life

How's Everyone Doing? How is Freight? Not Many Posts Lately

Otr Swift reefer here. Corona has actually given me an uptick in miles. Not being able to walk in everywhere is my biggest gripe

Usually when ppl say something is 100% their fault they don’t go on to blame it on someone else

Western Express Trucking Contract

In those 6 months how many loads have you declined? How often have you complained to them about everything? I ask because my first 6 months at Swift were all trials and tribulations. Companies aren’t dumb. They tend to start you in the kiddie pool before they toss you in the olympic pool with Michael Phelps. At Swift(insert big bad wolf emoji) I get 2000 miles pretty easily

Cant refuse loads as company driver and I don't complain spent first 2 months without going home and when I did go it was for a day and a half, supposed trainer only had 4 months driving and was already training and when he was driving was on his phone and falling asleep but that is probably my fault to but I didn't complain about that of course is my fault I feel you guys give to much credit to mega carriers but wait this site is just about that no really telling the truth

You came to trucking...TRUTH. The truth is, in one thread you’ve managed to blame everyone from dispatch to your suddenly horrible trainer. If you look in the mirror I’m sure you’ll see who you left out.
