Hello trucker freinds. Been a while since I've been here. Last time, I was looking into getting back into trucking. Called up Central Refrigerated. They were able to bring me aboard, after being out of trucking for about six years. All I had to do was a road test.(hung on to cdl , the time i was off the road), refresher course with a trainer out on the raod. Was abit rusty at shifting the gears again. And a bit of the backing manuvers. But I knew that I need learn the H. O. S, of the newer rules and regulations. I am happy to be back grinding gears again. Of course, i don't miss the traffic. But hey, thats apart of the life.

  • 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.
