IMG_7240.jpg I'm also part of the sparkling personalities club. So new I had to put my own inspection stickers, rip plastic off of everything, and apply my ez pass and pre pass to the window. However, here's a tip. When doing a pretrip, make sure the coolant cap is on tight. I broke down 80 miles away. I've always looked at the coolant but never ensured cap was secured. I am a Primate now tho. #winning Be safe everyone!!! It's a crazy world out there.

I hate you all! ;) BTW, you are no longer in CDL school, update your status to ROOKIE solo driver, then you'll officially be part of the cool kids club!

CDL:

  • 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.

He said "tell your instructor you did wonderful, you are allowed 30 points, you got 6, thank you, you've been a breath of fresh air" we get out and he said "ok your trainer is coming look at the ground like you're dad "I said it's impossible not to smile right now" he just laughed. We got to my trainer and he said "she's a very good driver" and told her the great news. We high fived like little kids. I just breathed out a huge sigh of relief.

TRIFECTA BABY!!! Wooooo

Every time I think about it I just breath out a soft "wooohooo" my trainer just repeats it haha. Feels so good to be able to say I have my CDL , I am a truck driver guys!!! Big thanks to this site for better preparing me before I got out here. Such a huge difference maker!

Let me let you know something: THERE ISN'T A GREATER FEELING IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE THAN GETTING YOUR CDL! That is the most amazing thing that can happen to any driver. I am almost in tears here by reading this and it had to have been overwhelming for you to realize how much you are really changing your life. I have been though this before once in TX and the first time I BARELY passed my road exam and I remember, it was a VERY EMOTIONAL moment for me. I was literally in tears when it happened because when you have that license in your wallet, it truly is a LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE. I think when I get my Iowa CDL, it will be even MORE EMOTIONAL. The reason being is because, when CRST accepted me into NADTA, I was living in a homeless shelter in Davenport, IA and I have been homeless since September of 2016. I know when I get my license back I can finally get myself out of this bad situation and save up and get myself a place to live and get my life back on the right track. Trucking Truth here has been LEGENDARY great in helping me out here. (My GOD I am in TEARS right now as I type this because its so emotional!) I owe Brett and the other moderators and everyone here a lot for their help. I am glad to help anyone out on here that I can. If you had taken your tests here at NADTA, you would have walked out of there with one of the coveted white hats and your CDL. These tests are NOT easy. For someone, anyone to PASS them on the FIRST attempt is truly a LEGENDARY accomplishment in itself. You have done what a lot of people think is impossible and for that, I am VERY impressed.

LEGENDARY GRATZ ON GETTING YOUR CDL ON THE FIRST ATTEMPT!

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
