I have appreciated this site since I found it. It has helped me get through CDL training and I've put a lot of effort into it. I want to be a great driver. Passed my test today and have made the decision to go with PTL. Maybe a little smaller than some others but I believe it's the best fit for me. I will be heading off to training in a week and a half but wanted to show my appreciation to those that I've listened to and learned from so far...looking forward to getting out there.

And yes Brutus gets to go with me.

Paschall Truck Lines.

It's kind of like TMC - PTL is what they go by. The great thing about working for either one of those companies is that you'll never forget how to spell their name! smile.gif

Congratulations Dan!
