    I think C1 has a driver school in Ft Worth and this person is going to USA Truck afterward. Just wanting some comments from USA Truck drivers.

    1st Phase: Student drives while trainer is in passenger seat.
    2nd Phase: Team Driving... most likely will drive at night as a student, all depends on the trainer. When I had my first trainer we were on a 2-2 schedule. My second trainer I drove mostly at night.

    Yea you will get 60 to 75 hours on first phase and it will more than likely be on a dedicated run and 100+ hours on the second phase teaming OTR.

    There is a OTR dedicated that is a huge circle so I am hoping I can do that one. I need to go out on my own and make some money.

    I would have had one trainer.. but my first one was going on vacation. Both my trainers were both phase 1 & 2 trainers, neither had a dedicated route. I still got off trainers' truck within 3 weeks . Pushed so hard I had to wait for an extra day to do the upgrade due to me not having any hours left on my 70 lol.

    Me and my first trainer(which was great BTW) Had to get a steer tire replaced then had to go to vandalia to get some electrical gremlins fixed. So after waiting for 8 hours to get that done were informed that the truck was due for service 2 days later and they refused to look at it untill then so we had to bobtail 200 miles away, run our route, then come back 2 days later
