New trucker BOL question

Thank You for that info, I won't be finished with CDL school until the end of October, But I will be certain to remember that when I start driving. Iv'e been reading all over the internet ahead of time picking up all the helpful tips I can find.

Generally, no BOL means no pay for you OR the carrier.

Paperwork is very important, so scan the BOLs as soon as you can after a delivery.

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

In my previous life I was a Chief Engineer in the Merchant Marine industry for the past 20 years bringing in 120-150k per year. The money was great but I really hated the job, so 2 years ago I walked away from it and took 2 years off to make up my mind. Now I am currently enrolled in a 6 week driving school at a community college to get my CDL and learn some driving skills before I start filling out applications. I did drive for 1 year in the early 1990’s and really loved it, so I am currently getting back into what I really like. The money won’t be even close to what I was making but at least I will be happy with what I am doing.
