    No, I went to CDL Safety School in Morrison. It's right by Bandimere Speedway.

    i agree, however im not sitting on 60-70k lbs of explosive fuels. i try to be a good driver and avoid those situations anyways, of course.

    i actually wasnt aware DFA had their own farm milk pickup trucks, around here just about all of it is contract hauling. small-medium companies that are privately owned like walton (where i work), bugman, duncan, ect ect

    there are smooth bore, but there are two compartment trailers. i have pulled single compartment trailers too, they suck when they are only partially loaded. if you have 40K in a two compartment trailer, you load 35K in front and the other 5k in the back..... you barely even feel it. if you load 40K in a trailer that holds 70k and if it's 1 compartment it will be slamming and banging. it can be really dangerous with hills in the winter with weight transfer off the drive tires. product moves to the rear of the trailer when you go up a hill. a 2 compartment trailer will keep that weight where it needs to be.

    give me a 2 compartment trailer please (if i have a choice)

    Sounds like a good deal then.. with a 5 day work week you’ll easily gross over 100k if your in that pay range.. and once you get good won’t even have to get dirty or break a sweat. One key rule is to learn to be efficient.. not rush. There’s a difference.don’t ever get in a hurry because:A- they got to many loads on you or B: This guy is out of gas and we need you there now or C: you got something going on outside of work.. Do what you can do as the tasks take how long they take to be done right.

    DFA runs ads for company drivers. Trucks I've seen look like 0/0 trucks.
