Hey everyone, my application has been approved and I am on the waiting list for Maverick’s CDL sponsorship program. They say it can be 1-2 mobths wait. I figure I have waited this long to do what I have always wanted, I can wait a little longer. I have been doing the High Road CDL Training Program and have completed the General knowledge and Air brakes portions and working on Combination vehicles now. I’m pretty excited, and scared to death at the same time.

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.

Combination Vehicle:

A vehicle with two separate parts - the power unit (tractor) and the trailer. Tractor-trailers are considered combination vehicles.

Don’t forget the Pre-Trip pdf that Daniel B put together. If you have most of that memorized, you’ll ace the CDL for sure.

It helped me recognize parts of the CLP that I didn’t know since I had never been in a truck until company paid training started.

CLP:

Commercial Learner's Permit

Before getting their CDL, commercial drivers will receive their commercial learner's permit (CLP) upon passing the written portion of the CDL exam. They will not have to retake the written exam to get their CDL.
