    No I mean driving without that sort of safety net that schools tend to provide. You know In school it's expected that your are going to make mistakes. This was the first time I was sort of on my own, I mean my trainer was usually passed out while I was driving.

    If your trainer was recording critical events on a regular basis safety will intervene and possibly end their contract if goes too far/continues. Critical events aren't just something we pass off as computer sensor over sensitivty which the way you seem to be describing them.

    It wasn't that regular but it was an issue that even the dispatcher recognized. I understand critical events aren't a joke or something to be underestimated but they aren't always accurate. It's a computer. Computers can be just as fallible as us humans.

    tried searching for this question but nothing populated, but a little background on my question... i am a semi-experienced driver "lmfao" with 4mon TT and 1.5 years Class B 'like i said lmfao'. so heres the question..

    Question: My fiancee is wanting to get her CDL now, unfortunately, shes not able to go to an independent school like i did. we are looking at prime atm. i personally would love to train her, not looking to train others, but will if need be. do they allow cuples to train one another and if so, what are the requirements to become a trainer?

    Im a goody good good kid when it comes to driving. never had a ticket and always passed my inspections. Driving, honestly, is my passion and hobby, its the only job that i have ever looked forward to slipping into that seat and knowing that i have life made. 'personal outlook'

    Now I cannot offer you any help with Prime at all but as far as your question goes I do know of one company that lets you train your friends/family without becoming an "official" trainer and that company is Swift.
    If this is a deal breaker for you and you absolutely have to train your fiancé at least there's an option.
    However I wouldn't really recommend you leave prime to work at Swift for any other reason lol

    Hope that helps in some way, sorry I couldn't give you the info you're looking for specifically

    i dont work for prime, still with my class b job for now, applying for another location friday.

    my 4 months was with swift, amd despite others beliefs i had a great trainer. he actually taught me alot both real world amd scenario. Bullet B. was his name wont post his full last name just because i dont have his permission. i didnt have any real issues with swift, i was never done wrong. my demise was my own fault, i had a personal issue with my driver manager that i didnt handle as an adult and i dropped the keys ln her desk. i wouldnt mind going back just for me or my old trainer to train her, id just hate for her to get woth some smuck that thinks they know how to drive amd get her killed or her to lose her license off the bat. same reason i walked away from werner, they had me with a guy who had less then 100k miles under his belt and had only had his class a for 6mon
