Any suggestions as I prepare to start? thanks

I am also starting at Prime I will be there on the 19th of this month. As far as being ready I would recommend going through the High Road Training Program on here. It has been a huge help. I am currently on my second time working through it just to be sure I have no doubts about passing once I arrive in Springfield. I can promise you this will help you pass your CDL permit test.

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.

Will do. I plan on starting a separate thread and try to give as much detailed information as possible on the whole process.

New question for Ice & Brian, or anyone that has gone through the PST

Was reviewing the stuff on Prime here, and I notice they (prime) mentions the Hazmat endorsement as needed. The email i recieved they noted they wanted me to study up on the tanker endorsement, yet there literature also mention that tanker drivers required 1 year of experience.

Was curious if your email said hazmat or tanker endorsment as the extra to study up on?

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations
