Why you slow down when you can't see very far ahead

Never out-drive your headlights. This goes for ALL vehicles. Remember whenever your wipers are on, headlights need to be on too. I see all sorts of drivers in inclement weather not running their lights on. P.S. I am tentatively scheduled to begin training for my CDL through Wilson Logistics in Missoula MT. on January 13, 2020.

New and overwhelmed

Hey Sean, Good Luck! I also have been studying up on the different companies & have been in contact with MaryAnn at Wil-Trans. That's the company I hope to train at too, but looking at January 2020 From my last conversation with MaryAnn, they made a slight change to the training program, You must obtain your CDLPermit & have your DOT Physical before arriving at the training location. I found the Trucking Truth web site when I started looking for a career change & read all the reviews that were posted of all the companies & made a list of all the things I liked. What led me to contacting Wil-Trans is their pet & passenger policy... My wife works as a Teachers Aid in one of the local school districts & in the summer months, she & our rescue dog can travel with me,

CDL Test #2 Tommorrow

Moses, sorry to hear that you are struggling. When you climb in the truck & fasten your seat-belt, take a few seconds, close yours eyes, take a few slow deep breaths & clear your mind... Relax & Get-r-Done
