I was there all of five hours. They will require you to some stuff using a computer. Basically computer classes over the rules that Knight has in place. I can't tell you about there road test, except they sent a veteran driver home for shifting while driving over the railroad tracks during the road test.

This was my first choice but as they only hire out of Arizona I was not able to attend. Good luck to you!

They were my first choice as well, but when I called a recruiter she informed me that they're only hiring out of Arizona, Utah, and either Nevada or New Mexico (can't remember which). This was a few weeks ago now; not sure if it's changed since. Might want to give them a call if you live outside that area...

They must have changed their policy, but (then again) maybe that is why they sent me back.

Sounds great! Looking forward to hearing how things go for ya.

I see you've just begun the High Road Training Program. I would get on that in a big way before you go so you don't have to cram all of that information in under pressure. Learn the materials now and things will go much better for you once you arrive there.

Yup, I gotta agree with Brett. Even tho you already have your CDL , things have, and continue to change in the trucking world....LOGBOOKS are a great example. So do the High Road to get yourself back up to speed...

AND GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!
