Anyone else going through NETTTS? Heard any horror stories? I just found this website a few days ago so I'm not certain if its been covered in a previous thread. Thanx in advance

Dave, unlike other trucking sites, we really don't "rate" truck driving schools, or trucking companies. Brett has put together a good reference Truck Driving Schools. So you might try looking thru it. But honestly, you can't believe or trust most, if not all of the opinion of those negative trucking sites... We do our best to help those who want to get into trucking. But we try real hard to do that, without trashing companies or schools. after all...the school is only as good as the student makes it....just as a driver is only as good as he makes himself for the company he drives for. It isn't about them....Its all about YOU.......

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Welcome aboard Dave!

Starcar is right. What we do is help you understand the trucking industry, learn to evaluate schools and companies, and make the choices that suit you the best. The rampant negativity you find strewn all over the Web about the trucking industry is grossly misleading. 98% of it is total garbage.

Read through our Truck Driver's Career Guide which will teach you all about the trucking industry and will lead you to information about How To Choose A Truck Driving School and all sorts of great stuff.

NETTTS has been around a long time. They're a legitimate school. But do your research here on our site. There are a lot of considerations and you'll learn how to choose the truck driving school that suits you the best.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Brett, Starcar, Thank you both for answering my post, I understand your reasoning and it also tells me you guys have a nice thing going on here at Trucking Truth. I truly appreciate the fact that you would not answer my question in the manner it was asked, I respect your objectivity. Anyhow even if you had answered its too late, and its my fault for not remembering I even made the post in the first place.I've completed my second weekend of classes which concluded the formal classroom time and I'll start the hands on training in the yard next weekend providing I get my permit this week, which I believe I will. I've read all the articles both of you referenced as well as reading ahead on tons of others to get the Big picture of what I'm really getting myself into. Wish me luck and I'll surely be visiting often. Dave D.

Hello, I currently am going to nettts, in the weekend class, and I'm taking the 22 week class.... the instructors are very good, and are all in the industry in one way or another. a lot of them are tough, and they all have their quirks, but they will help you learn. some of the students are the "class clown" types, and the instructors try to nip them in the bud early.... just remember that early is on time. and on time is late... when they start you on logbooks, remember to update them whenever there is a change in status....

as far as the field portion goes, I just finished my first weekend, and it is going good.... it's of hands on application of what they teach in class, and it is where we iron out.the kinks, and the instructors help you out with the skills, even 1 on 1 if needed. they want you to pass the tests on the first try.....

also what I like about nettts is that once you are a student there, and graduate, you can always go back to freshen up on things you can go and do it at no cost. you also have access to their placement department, and other resources....

I hope this helps....

Logbook:

A written or electronic record of a driver's duty status which must be maintained at all times. The driver records the amount of time spent driving, on-duty not driving, in the sleeper berth, or off duty. The enforcement of the Hours Of Service Rules (HOS) are based upon the entries put in a driver's logbook.
