Once I get my CDL I wonder who will be my finisher 🤔

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.

When I went to TDDA, they gave us a YouTube pretrip to watch. This was to get the wording down. I played it constantly and even when I slept.

Ask them.

Doing 90" degree alley docks which are completely hit or miss... It's pretty annoying and the instructors aren't very good 👍

I like CFI's program but hate their choice in trucking schools, word of advices for truck dynasty is get more trucks and more instructors.

Today my whole group including me are getting really tired of this school to the point that we think it's a flipping joke.
