My trainer with Knight used to do 7on/7off His biggest complaint was that most drivers do not take good care of their trucks, so slip seating does not generally have you in the best equipment, at least with Knight.

Do you live in Charlotte? If so which school do you plan to attend? Knight's terminal is about 5 minutes from my house. There are many others as well.


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.

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Well Millis has a school in Eden, NC. They have a great training program and I think they have regional routes.


Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

We had someone here that did that type of schedule with Roehl....maybe one of our professional archivists, can dig it up. It will give you a good idea of what you can expect.
