I've had my permit since August, and have driven with the other driver in the cab, both with and without a load, since then. Regardless, my boss will not run people in vehicles that the insurance company will not ensure on said vehicle. Maybe he is running me uninsured, but I highly doubt that to be the case.

There are so many things I could tell you right now. Suffice it to say your chosen path is unconventional and often yields an undesirable result. Not trying to be a doomsayer, just trying to ground you in blunt reality. There are exceptions to this, hopefully you’ll prevail.

Make the most of your time with your trainer. Don’t rush things, learn your craft, maintaining patience and humility throughout the process. Expect to screw-up and focus on learning from the mistakes.

We are here to help. I wish you luck Micah.

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
