My application to train with CRST was accepted this afternoon. I will start in May, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I will be able to take the permit test and DOT physical here in Minnesota before I start school. I am thankful for this opportunity and will do my best to pass everything and learn all that I can. I applied through the form here at Trucking Truth and want to thank Brett for making it available. I'm using the High Road Program to help be ready for the permit test. I am also thankful for everybody here that is always ready to take some time with us new people. In just about any new field it is hard to get a foot I the door, let alone some experienced person/people who will give the time of day, to an unstart. I'm very excited but also a bit scared. Thanks again and again to everybody who's here to help and encourage.


Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Congratulations Doug!

I know you're aware that CRST is a teaming operation, and I won't harp on it. It works for some, others not so much. Just continue to ponder on it.

Good luck!

Thanks Bobcat. All I can say is that I will do my part to make this work. When I worked underground and in surgery I worked with some pretty stout personalities, but we always got to go home at the end of the day. Team driving will be interesting to say the least.
