Harvest how did you make out with letting your FM know about the accident? Have you been able to get a copy of the accident report yet?

Fm:

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.

I was in between jobs, so I let my recruiter know about the accident and will be checking base in a few weeks. I don't have the full copy of the police report but my attorney is getting a copy this coming week.

Harvest, I read your post from years ago with Prime:

Did you to pay Prime the Contract amount for CDL Training? From reading that thread: you passed and obtained the CDL just prior to the DAC results (of damaging a tarp and leaving without 2 weeks notice) kicked you out. You were past the 7 day grace period. Seems this situation was on Prime for not vetting, but contract states otherwise. You only complained about gas money in that thread.

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.

DAC:

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.

Harvest originally obtained his CDL at prime. During training he had quit for something local. After that didn't work out he went back to prime which is when he was sent home this last time that you're inquiring about Cajun.
