I'm en route now

Why are you asking us what you'll need when you're already on your way? If we say you need your S.S. card it's too late, is it not? You've already spent more time here arguing than it would have taken to order a new S.S. card in the first place, which you should've done months ago when you first started asking about it.

Wow, no I worked my last shift at my previous job yesterday and people were crying

Was it because they loved how well you listened? Or maybe how well you were on top of the things you need to take care of? Maybe it's the fact that you argue incessantly over little things that are simple and obvious to everyone else?

Yeah, they were crying all right when they found out you were leaving. No one doubts that.

Shxx that's what I would do... Not find my hometown SS office number and call them and have it overnighted to my hotel. I wouldn't be ready to pay extra for that service either... Cause they owe it to me.

Then again it might take two weeks to get it sent out... Hopefully you planned to kick it in the hotel on your own dime for awhile.

Just checked the PDF that was emailed to me upon my passing the drug test. Clearly says you need your SS card if you do not have your birth certificate. Perhaps the webpage is outdated. Sigh.....we'll see.

Graduated April 1 , SLC . They did take my SS card at one point during which I was handing over the slew of other paperwork as well.

Good luck

EVERY site for trucking companies I have seen, and here ALL say to bring your SS Card WITH ya lol

I had to replace mine, I have had since I was 12, because it had my name "Steve" not Steven ! lol like it really made a difference.(only my mom called me steven when I screwed up!)

But I went to get it fixed per Roadmasters Admissions Advisor (which I am not going to after all) The new local driving school says the same thing....Bring it WITH me on day 1! Like figure they probably wanna take photo copies of ALL your stuff for their records. and trucking company you drive for, as well.

My original has been in my wallet since I got it, 47 years ago lol And ya better have it on ya at any casino, in case ya hit a big jackpot to get paid!

The problem was are you asking the recruiter the correct question?

"Does Prime need my SS card?" is completely different from "Does MO DMV need my ss card?"

i posted three threads ago the links of documents necessary for the Real ID Act of 2005...which MO and many other states were given waivers for up until last year i think it was. Now, DLs need to be REAL ID complaint or you lose benfits aka getting on a plane without a passport.

NJ has been using the 6 point ID system since 9/11 because the terrorists got their fake DL here in my state.

Basically in order to get a DL that is REAL ID complaint, you must present documents that add to 6 points, however one category alone wont work. They have categories A, B, C. You need one from each column.

A passport or birth certificate are each 4 points from column A. But you cant use both to add to 8 points... you need column B and C as well. Social Security is 1 point. State or federal employment ID are 1 point i think from column B. then proof of RESIDENCE aka not one of those mailboxes but an actual place to live. Prime will give you a residence letter.

Women also.have to prove name changes with marriage and divorce documents. My 80 year old mother had to get her marriage cert from 1960, divorce papers from 1972 and marriage cert in 1974. And she was an Airforce vet who worked for the federal govt for 42 years.

Theres lists on the links i sent you a month ago. Go find it on your long bus ride.

Employment eligibility documentation is completely different. so that is a federal link under Immigration and Citizenship.

Smart C,

Setting aside the documentation issue with Prime, I think the bigger lesson from your experience on this forum should be the quote below from G-town:

Do you think you are humble? If not, can you be? All we need to do is look at some of the headstrong, know-it-alls that have graced this forum with their superior knowledge and worldly wisdom to realize how critical it is to be humble. For anyone who has spent time in the corporate world, I am sure you can think of at least 1 person that believed; "the entire universe revolved around every breath they took". This one thing is possibly a trait that might escape many business people. Like I have said to more than one person, former colleagues that thought trucking might be cool...never forget where you came from. Be humble and accept the fact in the beginning you know nothing and that at least during school & training no one wants to hear how smart you think you are.

From the following thread:

From the Corporate Environment to Trucking

Your chosen name is "Smart C" and you shared on this forum that everyone cried on the last day at your last job, because they would miss you. As a result you think everyone at Prime will love you. You also mentioned that your background is in accounting. None of your behavior so far shows humility. Rather it shows you believe the entire universe revolves around every breath you take.

I also am planning to move from the corporate environment to trucking. I have already learned a lot about humility from the short time I have been on this forum. I also have almost a year before I plan to start Prime's CDL school (assuming they accept me). So I continue to work on having the proper frame of mind when I show up for orientation.

You have a much shorter time in which to change your attitude to one that will make you successful at trucking. I hope you do and I hope you succeed.

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.
