So like the subject says I passed General Knowledge, Air Brakes, Combination, Doubles/Triples and Tanker. I'm now a Wisconsin Commercial Permit Holder with two endorsements!

I want to say thanks to the helpful crew that have helped me along the way! This site is amazing, and hands down improved my skills.

My next step will be to study for the HAZMAT in the coming weeks. Then I'll be starting school in January and I will post how that goes.


Hazardous Materials

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


Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

I'm old enough to remember and occasional use that phrase, and I'm not very old. In fact my wife tells me all the time how young I am. At least that's what I think she means when she calls me immature rofl-3.gif
