Ryan, It was really refreshing TBH. Can't say the same for some of the other companies I have spoken to in the past. Also Crazy that a company like this wasn't automatically included in the application for paid training. But like I said just grateful for the opportunity ahead and really comfortable with the dealings so far.

Made it down to the local Concentra clinic where I did my physical last year and got a copy of my DOT card which is still valid until March of next year. So next goal is studying for and passing the CLP exam and figuring out where I can park the truck when I come home with it lol.

Where to park the truck shouldn't be a problem. Witte Bros may have a location near where you live that they have drivers in that area park. If not, there are lots of places with truck parking in MD. When the time comes, people here can help you out, if you need the assistance. I would not even sweat the issue of where to park. Just keep focused on the small goals one step at a time.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

CLP:

Commercial Learner's Permit

Before getting their CDL, commercial drivers will receive their commercial learner's permit (CLP) upon passing the written portion of the CDL exam. They will not have to retake the written exam to get their CDL.

Thanks again for your insight. I have a last resort place where I can park after a conversation with a friend yesterday but his places is 2.5 hours away and across the bay from me. Next time my recruiter checks in I'll remember to ask him about this. Not sure why I didn't ask yesterday during the interview, I had written in my notes and did ask about if we take the truck home but for whatever reason didn't ask about parking it.

I appreciate the reassurance
