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.


Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

The low pressure alarm should give an audible and visual warning at 60 psi or above. The order does not matter as long as you hit everything. When I did my test last week, I made a mistake. I said, "I missed a step so I must redo my test." I started the engine and had to wait for the air pressure to rebuild. Then I started over with my test. I got everything right. I lost no points. It did not matter I restarted doing them. It showed that I knew what I was doing.
