I passed my permit test!!!! Although it is just a written test I was a bundle of nerves! The first thing when I go into the license bureau a guy said he has been driving for 20 years and wished he picked something different...Not a problem I see people like that in every career honestly

A big shout out and thanks to Brett for this wonderful site and The High Road training by Brett could not have passed without it. Thank you, very truly thank you

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Man, this is EXCITING! Your relationship with The Lord is probably much better than mine, but I hope this brings you closer to Him. It has for me.

I’m pretty sure if there was a “study” done, it would prove Drivers who start here have a near 100% success rate at making it through the first few years.

Congratulations!!!!! WOOHOO!

My girlfriends father is a ex truck driver, he retired from the teamsters, He is checking with some people he knows to see if they can train me locally so I can get home on a regular basis. If not I will be attending a CDL school. I realize that a company sponsored CDL school is best for training, but if I can get a job driving and get consistent home time with training, as a minister I have to take that option. If it does not work out I will stay at least a year, and then move on.
