I am about to start school with CRST early next month. I am overwhelmingly thankful for this site. It helped me choose how to get my training, where to go for said training, and have a good understanding of what I was getting in to. I have spent several weeks reading the forums and am now starting the High Road CDL Training to get me ahead of the game before school. All of you have been extremely helpful without even knowing it. I look forward to working for the same company as some of you and the same industry as the rest of you. I will have many questions in the future and will feel comfortable asking them from you, a group of professionals willing to help. Again, THANK YOU all!!!

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

OWI:

Operating While Intoxicated

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.

Best of luck in school! Ask away someone here will be able to answer.

You think your thankful now? wait until you get THROUGH the High Road CDL Training program !! When I started it was all a blur, trying to remember this number from that number. But it is set up in such a way that after you make it through one section, the review questions keep reinforcing what you learned before with what your learning now.

I completed the High Road, and have now gone back through it on the practice tests and I am soaring right through. At first I was checking every answer before I answered it. Then I would check my answers to make sure they were right.

Now, I hardly have to look at all. Its becoming 2nd nature. I am truly thankful these folks have set up this program, and I am sure you will be also.
