I wouldn’t say that. I just like to stick to a theme. Thank you all for the congratulations. Those of you that have been following since day one know that it’s been a tough row. Trouble with my med card, wrong turns, failed tests, the works. Now the real work begins. Now I can drive a truck. Time to learn to be truck driver.

So they don't have training classes to go over the reading section?

Fun fact: Wilson sent me a link to Trucking Truth’s High Road CDL training program. That’s to that I passed, first time go.

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.

Reading section? If I understand you correctly, then you mean classes for the permit test. No. You are expected to do your own studying on that. Follow the program here and you’ll be fine. I think some of the questions on the test had the exact same wording.

  • 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.

So after a day of paperwork, I’ll be off again with my trainer in a few minutes. 30,000 miles to go and I get my own truck. Since I’m technically still in training, I’ll keep updating this along the way so all my fans can phollow the phantom.
