Hello Everyone,

I am just repeating a little information about myself in the forum...

Hello everyone here on TT and I find this website very, very helpful and thanks to everyone's input.. Thanks to RainyD, OldSchool, PJ, G-Town, Errol and for sure Brett A for having the opportunity to access all this helpful information... Thanks Guys all information is much appreciated.

First off.. I hope everyone is having a safe 2018 out there on the road right now and pray you get where you are going SAFE..

New Drivers and Vet's please help!!!

Just a little information about me first... I am 32 years old, clean MVD record never been involved in a Motor Vehicle accident or a Ticket from Police of any kind and I've had my regular DL from New Mexico for over 16 years now never once suspended or anything like that ONLY an honest mistake it was expired for 6 months before i noticed.. QUESTION? I notice Jim Palmer wants a valid DL for the past (3) years and i had to renew my license in JUNE 2017 but my record is so damm CLEAN i didn't realize my license was expired for 6 months prior to that before it expired in 11-2016???

Can that be a huge issue?? I've always had the same DL # from New Mexico and never 1 ticket or citation??

I was curious if anyone has known anyone who went threw JIM PALMER to get the CDL A and to stay with them for a year??? how is it??? and how long did it take to go Orientation??? because i here there groups are small like (5) people at a time??? I honestly just like what i have been reading about JIM PALMER it sounds like it fits me better, because i have been considering PRIME but.. I do like what i am reading about on JIM PALMER.. How is the HOME policy for JIM PALMER from what i read its not bad and they will work with you for the most part???

Anyways i am interested any good or bad things please feel me in??
