    My name is Dave and years and years ago when I had a CB my handle was Hammer.

    On the 29th of Feb. I graduated C1 Truck Driver Training Ft. Worth.

    I was put through school by P.A.M. Transport under the idea that I work for them a year and my school gets paid off.

    Today was the 6th business day and I have yet to be assigned a trainer.

    My CDL-A has Tanker and Double, Triple endorsements and I am going to go take the hazmat test tomorrow. I have better than 4 years without a ticket or problem in my personal vehicle ('03 RAM 2500)

    Currently I know NOTHING and will be soaking this sight up like a sponge!:biggrin_25514:

    I was out there for a break a couple times. But the Lady instructors would take us to the truck stop instead.

    It's kinda sad that the best truck at the school is a 2001 Classic XL. But one of the 1997 models had a REALLY great clutch and tranny.

    Dave I graduated See One in Fort Worth in Oct 2009. I spotted some Snazzers posting here and wanted to let them know the space aliens will be bringing me back soon. Best of luck and I did get a local job flat bedding and starving to death. The Snazzy One.
