I'm in school (Swift 2nd week) and we were told that they're back logged for road training, so we all go home for a few weeks (4 - 6 for Tennessee) depending on our state after skills evaluations. My question is..does anyone know in general what rider policies are? I'm going to be off for weeks already, was hoping to maybe go on the road with someone for a couple days to see what it's like. Not for training..not for me to touch the steering wheel. Just to get an idea. Two weeks ago was the first time in my life I was anywhere near a truck besides on the highway or a gas station.
