Since many of the forum members use trucks and other objects in their profile pictures, I thought it would be interesting and ask if you could post an actual picture f yourself, so I/we can "see" who we are speaking to. I understand if some prefer not to do so for privacy concerns. I'll start off.

Just kidding too ha. That my buddy Opus.

This is me the very first time I sat behind the wheel of a rig, on my trainer's truck day 1 of PSD. Got my game face on.

PSD:

Prime Student Driver

Prime Inc has a CDL training program and the first phase is referred to as PSD. You'll get your permit and then 10,000 miles of on the road instruction.

The following is from Prime's website:

Prime’s PSD begins with you obtaining your CDL permit. Then you’ll go on the road with a certified CDL instructor for no less than 75 hours of one-on-one behind the wheel training. After training, you’ll return to Prime’s corporate headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, for final CDL state testing and your CDL license.

Obtain CDL Permit / 4 Days

  • Enter program, study and test for Missouri CDL permit.
  • Start driving/training at Prime Training Center in Springfield, Missouri.
  • Work toward 40,000 training dispatched miles (minimum) with food allowance while without CDL (Food allowance is paid back with future earnings).

On-the-Road Instruction / 10,000 Miles

  • Train with experienced certified CDL instructor for 3-4 weeks in a real world environment.
  • Get 75 hours of behind-the-wheel time with one-on-one student/instructor ratio.
  • Earn 10,000 miles toward total 40,000 miles needed.

Turtle and Icecold24k:

I'm going out on a limb here and guessing that you both drive for Prime Inc.? All we need is Rainy D wearing her Prime hat/cap and we will have a trifecta.

Bryan: I bet with your baby-face looks along with wearing a Heritage Bible College t-shirt, how many times have you had your cheeks pinched by the older ladies out there saying "what a sweet young man you are!"
