I was thinking about doing the high road training but I was concerned that I would do it and then I would start studying at school and the two might not make sense together. So I was just going to study what the school program was. But if you think it will be beneficial then I'll get into it.

You should be using the extra time to study, study the here and now. Pelican we have seen many, many examples of people in your same position, looking so far down the road they lose sight if taking care of immediate business…

Study! Read! Absorb!

There are hundreds of articles in the blog section of Trucking Truth cross referenced several ways…click on the menu bars in upper left corner of this page and you’ll see a drop down list of services including the blog. Read the diaries section… so much information here beyond the banter of the forum.

I like to plan ahead 😆

I start school October 17. They had to push it back because the September class got completely booked up.

  • 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.

Don’t be so indecisive. High Road training will be compatible with any other training you get. It does get you a great head start, though.

Pelican… why, as an unpaid Moderator of the Trucking Truth Forum would I suggest doing something like studying the High Road CDL Training Program if excessive ambiguity existed within each State and school?

We are all about Best Practices here… especially at the stage you are in. We have decades of top performing and safe operation just within the half dozen moderators…with zero experience, what basis do you have for questioning our guidance and advice?

As an example you asked about dogs and leasing. No where in the CDL tests are either of those two topics addressed. However things like pre-trip, air brakes and safe operation are. I suggest redirecting your focus on what matters…

Glad to hear this Pelican... Looking forward to hearing questions relevant to your reading and studying.

Gotcha. I'll start looking into it.

So if PackRat listens to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and the great Sammy Davis Jr., would that be the PackRat Rat Pack? (You young people may not get that joke).

Well, I sure DID need a chuckle, haha! Especially one NOT at BK's expense..

NOW, here's a "Where's Waldo" game, y'all ~

In THIS cab (day or non...) can you spot the crutches? The triangles? Or . . . PackRat's Rat Pack ?!?!?!?

I'm thinking . . . in line with the original title of this thread; THERE IS A DOG ! (Somewhere?!?)

Again, Where's Waldo? Triangles? Doggo? (I've spotted the crutches. . . )
