My husband and I passed our State test!! I lost one point on my pre trip, the examiner was like who taught you your pre trip?? It was so good!!! I also managed to get no points on my backing! Using one pull up and GOAL for the offset and alley each. And to top it off they said I got a really high score on the road!! I felt like I drove horrible compared to my time on the road with a trainer, too darn nervous! Sorry to toot my own horn but I'm just so darn proud of myself!! On to the next training phase!! I'm so looking forward to the puzzle of using our HOS efficiently and planning those trips!!

Now we just have to decide what company to go with??!!!! I know the mantra here is all big companies are very similar but it still feesl like a huge decision with very little info to go on.

Thank you so much for all the encouragement and source of knowledge!! I will keep y'all up to date on our progress!!


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Way to go Amber! The hard part is over!

I'm sure you've seen our Trucking Truth stuff on Choosing Your First Truck Driving Job.



When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Congratulations Amber!

It feels surreal doesn't it?


I'm very proud of you for hanging in there and getting that license. There's more work ahead, but I'm confident you've got the stuff to pull it off. Keep us updated.
