We all have heard the saying…”If you don’t use it, you lose it!” Such is the case in driving a truck. As you already know, operating a tractor trailer is quite a bit different than driving a typical passenger vehicle. The braking system, mirrors and backing up all pose significant challenges. It is a good idea to consider a refresher course even if you are the slightest bit unsure of your ability in safely operating a tractor trailer.
There are numerous reasons why someone may consider enrolling in a CDL refresher course. First, if YOU haven’t been behind-the-wheel for a long period of time and are now attempting to re-enter the industry, most trucking companies will require that you take a refresher course for to satisfy insurance requirements and to alleviate any safety concerns. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations that govern the transportation industry are constantly changing; staying up-to-date on these regulations will ensure you are always in compliance – thereby eliminating the risk of losing your job, your license or receiving a civil fine.
CDL refresher courses encompass many subjects. Just as was the case when you first entered truck driving school, there will be classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction during training. Classroom work includes a comprehensive review of the rules of the road, especially the ever-changing hours and service regulations. The hands-on component of training will include a review of vehicle inspection and an in-depth skill training to reacquaint you with the process of safely operating a commercial motor vehicle while under the direct supervision of a highly trained and licensed CDL instructor.
Completing a CDL refresher course can greatly springboard you back into the transportation industry as a professional truck driver. If you lack past experience or have no recent experience, completing a refresher course will take the place of this experience requirement of most trucking companies. A CDL refresher course will also allow you to network with countless trucking companies – and by taking advantage of TransTech’s superior job placement assistance, you will be back behind the driver’s seat in as soon as 2 weeks.
TransTech is proud to provide CDL refresher courses all across North Carolina.
