Congrats!! Good luck and hard work on the rest here we go!

I don't know how people have the time and energy to do a training diary while in CDL school. I got my permit before school by studying on my own and it is still kicking my but to do a 10hr day and complete the homework! Today is the first day I feel like I can breathe for a minute.

Lol thanks, no lie I’ve been tired since I’ve been in school I’m not used to getting up at 5am I’m a nighthawk lol, I usually do the diary when I’m sitting in my car at the hotel that’s my downtime I’m woke by then, I’ve read so many diarys on here that I told myself once I get in school I’m going to do one because it might be help somebody one day like the diarys did for me and this is my chance to let everyone know what I’m experiencing, my story is like this back in 2013 I got a dwi one week before I was supposed to start cdl school at Roadmaster didn’t know nothing about trucking truth back then I’m glad I found this website, but no lie I messed up big time and I took full responsibility for my mistake, I told myself that I was not going to give up on my dream, I had to have an interlock system installed on my car for 1 year, even though I’ve faced all of these obstacles I told myself be patient and my time is gonna come, now 6 years later here I’m in cdl school Swift gave me in opportunity, I’ve learned from my mistakes, I have a great support system, I texted my recruiter earlier and told him I passed my permit test he said wow man wow that was quick and he said congrats if you have any questions about anything give me call,

Congrats!! Good luck and hard work on the rest here we go!

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
