So after my year was up, I decided that insurance was really important to me. It took a few months, but I got hired on at Holland. It’s a division of YRC and I believe they are going to be merging everything soon. I have a new respect for city drivers. I am also getting the backing practice that I need it so badly! Still struggling with out a bit but getting better. I am getting into some really tight docs but it just takes me a little bit longer then others. I don’t worry about it, I get paid by the hour now LOL

Welcome to the day cab side!

On a side note I hope YRC doesn't merge with Holland, my understanding is Holland makes money while YRC hemorrhages it. A merger would be the death of Holland.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

How were you able to take the Permit and Endorsement tests before getting your DOT Medical Card? What State do you live in?

I was able to take my permit/endorsement tests prior to getting a DOT Medical Card in GA. I don't think they would actually print them out and give them to me, though. I believe I had to come back with the card before they did that....


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.
