National training green cove florida

National raining is where I'll be training.

I visited their driving course a few weeks ago for an Open House type of thing. They have a good size area for training in the trucks, including a track that's 1-1/4 mile long (Pic's on their web site). They allowed us in the Rigs and even took us for a spin around the track with one of the instructors.

In a Nutshell... Financing: It's in the 6k range and Not hard to qualify for even with horrible credit. They'll require anywhere from $250.00 to $500.00 up front (depending on your credit) In order to start your Class Room course work on line. But they'll require somewhere around $1075.00 total, before you start the driving portion of your training. That means you'll be able to pay as you go while you're doing the @ home portion of the training. The remainder balance, after you pay the $1075.00 is financed thru them.

Their course: Well the Class Room type stuff you'll do at home on your computer, including quizzes etc. (all open book) and it takes about 2-3 weeks (their words). It can take longer and isn't an issue with the School if it does.

Once you're done and have your cdl permit, you can attend the Driver Training portion of the program, which is like 3 more weeks (give or take depending on the student). You'll get your DOT physical ($50.00) on the 1st day btw.

Just an FYI.

Hey thanks alot ynkedad,they sound like an awsome school from the research I`ve had done,I will be talking to them soon

I see you're choices are across the state - Jax,Orlando, Punta Gorda. Does location matter to you? My wife and I are 1/2 way through Pinellas Technical School and I can give you a strong recommendation for there.

hey thanx Rick..I`ve already looked into them and they do have a good program but its the time factor for me,i think that they are 320 hours,I`m not that lucky to have that time.

Canada

Some things to be aware of if you travel to Canada:

1/ Trucks traveling in both provinces must be speed limited to105 km/h.

2/ If you've taken a reset to start your most recent duty cycle it must be 36 hours, not 34 hours.

3/ Signage is Metric, so you best know the height of your vehicle in metres.

4/ Ditto for speed signs, they'll be in km/h.

There are more things to contend with, but those are the first that came to my mind.

thanks alot Mike,all of that didnt even cross my mind,

Canada

Ron, we have a few drivers in here who cross the border occasionally. Some of the problems associated with that are the differences in the H.O.S. rules, different load securement rules (for flat-beds), and time delays at the actual border point - I've heard tales of long delays when trying to return back into the U.S. This usually depends entirely on the particular crossing that you are at, but some of them seem to have the reputation of being more than willing to let you into Canada, and then requiring you to jump through hoops with all kinds of extra information or paper work to come back home.

And again old school..thank you,just thought it would be good for the miles,I never looked at it that way
