To pay my school back: Required team driving with a total of 240.000 miles together. Might be between 12 and 16 month? Need explanation how hometime works. Not specific the duration, more like how to handle when drivers have a huge distance between there homes. Don't know how to explain better. I know for each week longer out: 1 more day @ home. This is theory, but in practice? Any statement is highly appreciated. DF confused.gif

Old School, while not a team driver, has a lot of experience with timing and coordinating his home time, as he runs 6 weeks at-a-time and then breaks for home. Hopefully, he'll have time to pipe in and give you some insight.

I believe that yes, with most companies, one week out will earn you another day at home ...in theory as well as in practice.

Most companies that pair drivers together match up teams according to where you live so you both get home time and can return at the sometime. Now in training they will not do that.
