Chris Reich traveled all the way from Vista California to attend Interstate Truck Driving School. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations allow drivers to take training in a state they do not live in, take their CDL Road Test in the state they took their training, and then return to their home state to obtain their CDL. Most states cooperate in this system. Chris came to us because the testing delays in California are so long he could get the training and testing done quicker by traveling to our school.
McLane has another great new driver. Lee passed his passed his 1st CDL road test to obtain his Class A License and then finished up Phase Two of his training with flying colors.
Matt had a lot of things going on with his schedule so he took advantage of our online training materials. He really applied himself and passed his first road test with flying colors. He hopes to go to work for a "Heavy Haul" outfit.

Truckers and Taxes
Submitted by Bill on
It is tax time for most truck drivers. Taxes can be confusing for anyone but it is especially important for truck drivers to take the time to make sure they are taking advantage of all of the deductions available to them. Drivers also should be making sure they are getting the maximum deduction for Per Diem that they are entitled to.
