Continued update for 1-10-19. After doing the written test and passing, those of us that did had to go to the DMV (revenue office) and get our plastic permits. Then when we got back we went out on the road woth an instructor. It was awesome! Two students to a truck and we (at least my truck) drove about 12 miles each student. Y’all stay safe! Keep ya posted

I want to start by saying that i alpreciate everyone who has given me support on here. I am so glad that i found TruckingTruth.com amd read Brett’s book. Also I am very glad that I did the High Road to CDL course. Everything that I did here helped me achieve my goal and my dream! So since the last time I posted I have passed the driving/skills test and gotten my Class A, I was officially hired at Maverick and finished securement training. I am waiting to hear from my driver trainer in the next couple days. Then I will go out on the road with him for 3 - 5 weeks before I do my final eval at Maverick. Then, if all goes well, I will get my own truck!!! I am doing some videos on youtube to vlog my journey. If you like, check them out and subscribe to my channel. Everyone have a great day and stay safe!!

Hey everyone, I have a week of training left and then will do my evaluation and get my own truck! Been a busy few weeks, and eventful ones also! I’d like to thank everyone for their support and thank Brett for creating trucking truth. It helped me in so many ways! From helping me decide whether trucking is for me to helping me decide on CDL sponsorship with Maverick and finally helping me study for my CDL! Thanks to everyone else also for your support and wishes of good luck. I am hoping that the feeling I get of brotherhood in trucking is true. It sure seems that way!! My last career was like that. Sure we competed with each other but in the end if someone needed help then we were all family amd helped each other. I’ll keep everyone posted. Stay safe out there!!!!
