    You will be surrendering whatever licensing your country issued for our own licensing CDL etc. You cannot possess more than one set of license.

    Of course it's easy, they only pull tandems, and mostly on 4 lane interstates.

    Barely even qualifies as trucking.

    Well, the idea of about a 3406 or 3408 425 cat against 4 trailers on Cabbage downgrade in Oregon would be very worth a try. It's a shame that will never happen. Or even coming up the other way.

    For anyone thats interested i'd googled H2B visas forever and ever and never really come up with any real solutions for drivers needing visas to legally work in the USA now that Trump admin is in office that will even be harder there has always been a quota on H2B visas i think its currently around 50,000 and for all i know it may be lower now. However with the H2A visa that's a different story its for agricultural work only which of course is farm work those visas do not have a cap on numbers or so i've been told, the only catch is the farmer must compensate the worker for their travel expenses so alot of farmers are reluctant to bring in foreign workers from afar due to the huge airfares incurred, so they usually hire of course from ..... yes you guessed it Mexico cause it might only cost them a couple of hundred bucks for a bus fare.

    Acutally 60 mph is not 120 dude its only 100km per hour to convert you divide by 10 times by 6 eg 100km p h / 10 = 10 x 6 = 60
    maths was one of my forte's 120 km/ph would be 12 x 6 or approximately 72 mph
     
    orcen and x1Heavy Thank this.
