I am doing the High Road training on here and curious about something because I dont know.. Are you required to do the part about passengers? Even if you dont plan on transporting people?

Little Carolina, you can pick and choose whatever you want to work on in that program. That section is there for those who would like to get that endorsement, if you're not interested then skip right by it. But I've got to tell you that Brett has a story about getting the best paying driving job he ever had because he had that passenger endorsement. I'll let him fill you in if he want's too, but you never know, it might be a great back-up plan to have ready in your arsenal if you ever need it.

But really when you are doing that High Road study guide you can do it in any order and any pace that works for you. I'm glad to hear your doing it though - there's nothing else I know of that will help you be as well prepared as that study program.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

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.

Oh yes I have really been trying to just keep going beginning to end. I had a few days that I ran out of time to do it, but I pick back up whenever I have some free time. I am actually finding out that I actually knew some things. which I assume I picked up from family truckers. Anyways I will keep going at it and that would be great to hear Brett's story if he wishes to share.
