Welp!! LOOKS LIKE I'LL BE HEADING TO ROADMASTER AFTER ALLπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰!!!! Not gonna go into detail on what my husband did/said. Oh hecks I'm telling anyway haha. Told him that I'm gonna put off getting my CDL and becoming a truck driver. Well he gave me these words:"Woman you crazy!! I just got the truck repaired for you to have transportation for work baby..." I would keep going with what he has told me but it would take me all day to text it haha. In short form. He told me that he just wants me to be careful out there. He even told me I can put up a very good fight when it comes to what I want to do in life. It just amazes me when I hear so much encouragement from him. I start school Monday morning at 7am on August 24th. Still can't believe this is real. Did I mention he bought fireworks for when I complete the program and obtain my CDLs he wanted us to light it up that day. Have to thank God, because I've been praying so hard. Will update you all when I get a chance after school.

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.

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.

Wishing you well, with trepidation, m'lady. Hope this is the last 'Cyclone' you encounter, haha! The one at Coney Island (my most recent ride....) is closed, so...there's that!

@Big T pretty much hit the nail on the head. Your 'over eagerness' is almost to the point of being overzealous. Tread lightly, learn deeply.

The INFAMOUS Cyclone (Besides Bubbles' ~!) ;)

Either way; you'll have to get on the bandwagon soon after school, lest your CDL get stale.

Keep us posted; even if it doesn't work out.. wouldja?
