Thank you i been watch these videos they give me i got the in cab down and engine i feel im good it just the rear of tractor

They put me in maple wood place apartments i guess it apart of the hotel

The links PackRat provided will help. Just remember you may not have to do the whole truck. You will have to do the the in cab and the coupling. Securely fastened, no cracks, dents or missing bolts.

Once driving you will have to pretrip at least once per day. On your test you have to verbalize what you will be looking for in real life. Also remember, the tester is trying to pass you.

I will be in Joplin Wednesday, checking into the La Quinta at the terminal Thursday morning for my rehire.

Good luck.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Have you read over these links on here? These may he of great help to you.

Pre-trip Inspection:

A pre-trip inspection is a thorough inspection of the truck completed before driving for the first time each day.

Federal and state laws require that drivers inspect their vehicles. Federal and state inspectors also may inspect your vehicles. If they judge a vehicle to be unsafe, they will put it “out of service” until it is repaired.

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.

If you study the ones you got you should be prepared for anything? Are you in Joplin? Someone told me they may be doing Crowder's training at the terminal.
