Hello truckers, I been debating between company sponsored training and trucking school. I really wanting flatbed vs other ones. So after a month of deciding, I am attending a community college here locally (25 miles). I was going to attending Millis school, but I really want to do flatbed so I am not sitting in truck all the time. After schooling I am looking at Maverick, TMC, McElroy Truck Lines, or Western Express. I will be attending Southern State Community College in Wilmington Ohio. 160 hours of training. I was wondering if anybody on here went to SSCC truck driving academy. I start March 21st in a four weeks accelerated program so hopefully I will be driving by May. Today I go to DOT physical and drug testing. It's only two weeks from Monday I can't wait. Thanks truckers for listening/reading hoping to share my experiences with SSCC on here. Thanks, Sam the 4th


Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

If you haven't done so already, start the High Road Training Program on this site immediately. I used it, and breezed through my Permit tests and Endorsements. I start school with Swift on April 11th.

Congratulations and Good Luck
