Hey, all! I know.It's been a minute since I've checked in. Back in 2012 I was the first person to complete the cdl practice course here in Trucking Truth. Got hired on with Swift in July of 2012, and I'm still with them. Last week I hit one million miles driven. I'm still rolling along and loving every minute of it. So I wanted to share my good news. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • 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.

Hello Ahmalia, it's great hearing from you!

Wow - you're a million miler!

That's great news! I'm really glad you checked in with us. We love hearing about drivers with accomplishments and success, especially those we helped at the start of their careers.

I hope make it to 2 million miles!

Congratulations! You get rewarded with a new truck of your choosing, correct? If so, what's it gonna be?

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

If I was OTR , yes. But because I'm on a dedicated regional account where I slip seat, no.

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
