    hello all!

    My names Justin, I’m based out of the Detroit area. Just finished my first week of trucking school and I’m really enjoying it.

    Will be working for PAM once I get my CDL, looking into doing team driving until I’m more comfortable behind the wheel and my family’s financial situation is repaired, then I’ll want to go solo.

    Really enjoying it so far, can’t wait to talk and learn with you all!
     
    Just passing by, Puppage and Chinatown Thank this.

    Thank you, ya I’ve gotta pay my dues for the year, then I’ll definitely be looking at moving onward and upward.

    Will be getting at least my hazmat, maybe my doubles/triples. Just haven’t decided if I want the stress of dealing with a load that size
     
    Chinatown and Puppage Thank this.

    Good news! I’m on the road Monday!

    Passed my test for tankers
    Passed my test for hazmat (waiting on background to come back)
    Still deciding if I’ll test for doubles/triples or not!

    Get your doubles/triples now.
    You'll need those if you decide for a high paying line haul job when your contract is over with Pam.

    Will do. Truth be told, I took the test and failed by one question (my school didn’t teach doubles/triples, all the studying I did for it was while waiting in line at the DMV).

    Figure I’d take it again when I go back to add my hazmat endorsement (once my background clears)
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.
