Finally hit the 6 months bein a trucker! Gosh didn't even know its 6 months already! Haha I still remember those times that I can't even do straight backing when I was in school hahaha!

I don't know how many miles I run between the 6 months period, all I knw is Im enjoying every bit of my job + lifestyle. I've been pretty much in 48 states, up to Maine ( North East ) , Florida ( South ) , Cali ( West ) and Seattle ( North West ).. As far as ya knw our company is a North East base so New York , PA , Jersey etc are pretty much regular route. Ticket Free , had one incdent last month in FL when I missed the ramp but it wasn't in my DAC. Driven dif weather condition..so much fun haha!

I am really happy & grateful. I have no complain wit my employer..they keep me busy all the time. I am looking forward spending more months and years over here in ABX.

Also thank you TT family for everything! Trucking is now my life. I also do photoblog while im in trucking hehehe. Il share the website link whenever its ready.

Here's a sweet pic of my green monster taken somewhere in Dallas Forth Worth last week!

I will keep ya all posted! Cheers! :)

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
