    Can anyone tell me what the rider policy is for someone who is doing the refresher course?

    For what company?? Usually, there are NO riders policy, nor pets, during ANY training courses~ as I understand. Your post is pretty vague, sorry.

    The refresher they do is not like at most company's. They require more experiance and some not too far in the past. It is just going out with another driver for a week or two. No riders with you during this time, and I cannot remember, but I am pretty sure they do not allow riders for the first few months, but do not hold me to that. I never had a rider, so never asked. I can tell you that the trucks for non teams are all single bunk trucks. So your rider will be sharing your bunk. While with other driver doing refresher you will be in a double bunk, but that will be the last one you will see unless your a team driver.

    Freymiller has much nicer trucks and has refresher course named "Restore Program."
    Abilene Motor Express has refresher and trucks have refrigerator.

    I don't know about the refresh but if you run solo you can have a passenger except Dec thru Feb . After a year it can be year round. You contact Rebbeca in ride along an she'll give you the 411.
