    Thats messed up. Lol
    Yea they should only be trying to get you with people of the same preference on smoking.
    I am a smoker and my trainer didnt really smoke , but he didnt care. Well he did smoke those little cigars .

    Oh and guys , dont let your trainers just use you as a spare log book either..
    I have heard some do.

    Hey I'm looking to start school in Conley at the end of the month. Can you tell me how you rate the overall experience here in Ga then in Utah? Also did you have any females in the classes*?

    I actually had a easy time . There was one girl , but when she got to Utah some family issues came up and she headed home.

    If there isn't another girl you will get your own hotel room . In case thats what your worried about , and they do try to give you a female trainer as well .

    Yes you read my mind! Okay thanks a lot. I'm nervous but yet excited. My brother owns a truck through swift. He is also a trainer. Once I'm done with school I plan on training otr with him. Are you in your own truck now if you don't mind me asking?

    I am located in Marietta, looking at Central to get my CDL and get to work...I already have my CDL permit but I need a place to test out of and a little bit more of training couldn't hurt. I see that they send you out to Utah, does that mean you do your state CDL skills test there or is it back home in Atlanta?!

    I was here in Decatur at the swift office off panola rd from Monday to Friday. After testing they send you to Utah for 8 days ..that Monday you get there you will take the first test to get your class b permit. Once you pass that ...the next day you are in the trucks backing and driving. After that you go back for the Class A test which is 4 parts. You would know a lot because its pretty much what you started with in Atlanta. Once you pass and come back to Atlanta you have 60 days to get your license transferred over to the state Of georgia. There is no other testing needed. What sucks is it's 55 bucks to change it to Georgia.
