Good questions! I have to wait until Monday to speak with my recruiter about my training date, but I'm going to make a list of questions to ask during the driving portion of the training. Such as, how to handle driving uphill/downhill, how to level the weights of the freight or figure if it's too heavy before leaving lot, tricks to back trailer easily and successfully, still looking for more questions to add to the list.



As Driver pointed out, those type of questions are what you need to ask your instructor/trainer while you are in training. By all means make a list of questions as you think of them because I will tell you that you will forget most of them by the time you get on a truck (trust me on this).

I went through Prime's training program in 2011. I was very fortunate to have some really great instructor/trainers while I was going through the program. In fact I still am friends with my instructor even today. I have been fortunate enough to have had the experience.



Not sure why you guys thought I was going to ask the recruiter these questions as this discussion was nowhere near that. I was talking about the real world training.

As I went back and re-read your post, I realized that you had said these were questions you would be asking your trainer. That is what I get for not paying attention.
