From Rick C"s bio...

Starting over and giving this a second try, assuming technology and my maturity will make it easier.

Rick, you might want to try to add listening skills to that new maturity level you've obtained. You've already thrown in the towel once in this career. I don't know, it just seems like it might benefit you this second time around to be willing to learn something, and not be so eager to criticize those who have the experience to teach you something, ayh?


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

When does that maturity kick in? We'd welcome that.

There are certain traits that highly successful people have when learning something new:

  • Humble
  • Respectful
  • Good Listeners
  • Always Learning
  • Eager To Prove Themselves
  • Highly Motivated
  • Fiercely Determined
  • Appreciative Of Their Mentors

Rick is amazed...

It always amazes me how many big fish in tiny ponds there are on the internet.

Awesom Rickie... that brilliant reply oozes with the ripe fruit of maturity,... a diaper load of it.

W8 - WHAT ?

Aren't you the Genius who plunked down 9Gs and replied to this thread entitled: "Any Good Reasonable CDL Schools in Florida?". And then you talk smack about a highly respected moderator; Old School who's work boots you'd walk right out of and then fall flat on your face? Yeah Dude, you got your sh** together, don't you?


What amazes me Rick is Knuckle-Draggers like you have the freakin' audacity to disrespect moderators and experienced drivers trying to help you succeed, while you have yet to complete CDL school after washing-out your first go-around...

As a guppy currently wading in the still and protected water of your over priced trucking school, have no clue how to manage the boiling ocean of challenges that Old School navigates with ease as he makes a Royal Flush of income. The "the turd of arrogance" you just left in your Pampers, needs to be changed. My Jack Ass detector went off a long time ago after reading your first post. I'm rarely wrong about people.

Please show yourself the door, joining "Mr. Hotshot" who recently exited the forum. Both of you are cut from the same rags...way too smart for us Big Fishes who swim in the Small Pond.

Just amazing...!


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.


Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.
