    Don't feel to bad Nascar Bobby, I was talking to a guy the other day that lives down the road from me and he has been with a trainer now for 4 1/2 months and they keep telling him the same thing. He still doesn't know when he's getting released. By the way he was telling me that his trainer would not even allow him to use his cellphone except on Sunday when they stopped for a shower. Told him that Werner did not allow trainess to talk to their family during the week. :biggrin_2554: I told him he needed to be calling someone about that. Is this standard practice at Werner or is this his trainer doing this? I am guessing it's his trainer not the company.

    His trainer is full of it. You can use your phone whenever you want while training. I personaly do not let student drivers use the phone while they are driveing, just not a smart thing to do for a new driver. When your done driving you can use the phone all you want, i just ask my student drivers to jump in the sleeper and close the curtain so they have privacy and makes it easy on me when iam driveing. I use my phone when iam driveing, but only when iam out of the city and on the open road, also with a headset only. I let student drivers that are doing good after 2-3 weeks use there phone, with a headset on the open road if they and i fell they can handle it. I just tell them make it quick as they can.

    Yeah i told him i thought that his trainer was doing that on his own. I haven't talked to him for a couple weeks but hopefully he did something about it by talking to someone.

    At least I am done with training.

    As for the cell phone, I believe the hand book 11.14 states Trainers descrection while the truck is moving.

    Here is a quote, "It is up to the Trainer's discretion as to when a Student has obtained the necessary skills to be able to use electronic communication devices, and under what circumstances."

    My trainer kinda pull this kind crap with the radio. Radio was loud when I sleeped but had to be turned off when I drive.

    So you play games. You can grind the gears, pop the glutch and go off course on JIT loads. This could get you tested out faster.

    I agree.

    There is a great Brady Bunch episode that illistrates taking the exact words to far. I think it was called Greg's exact words.

    And how about the episode where people overexagerate or lie like most people do when they are posting how bad companies or trainers are, what was that episode called?
