Our unique system makes every presenter an expert.  Step-by-step instructions allow for easy preparation even when you are unfamiliar with the subject matter.

The Lesson Plan states the objective and outlines the training session.  Speaking points, references, quizzes, worksheets and a supply list (when applicable) are all included.

    Defensive driving is one of those skills that seem so fundamental, so obvious, it's easy to take it for granted.  Drivers may let their guard down the more miles they log or the longer they go without a serious incident.

    This training is for all drivers not just CMV drivers.

    It is important that everyone at your company understands the disqualification requirements in Sec. 383.51 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) especially your drivers.

    A driver holding a commercial driver's license (CDL) or commercial learner's permit (CLP) can be disqualified from driving a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) if convicted of certain violations while driving any type of vehicle. This includes violations while operating a personal vehicle on personal time.

    This training program will address the driver disqualification regulations in Sec. 383.51 of the FMCSRs including what constitutes a disqualifying offense and the consequences associated with being convicted of a disqualifying offense. It also addresses the elimination of the practice of "masking" convictions by a state on a driver's driving record.

    This Training Applies to All CDL drivers and their Managers

    Applicable Regulations

    Keeping a record of your duty status is one of the tasks a driver performs on a daily basis. Making sure it is legal and current can at times be difficult and/or confusing.

    This training program will review the basics of keeping an accurate, legal and current driver’s log.

    Note: This training deals in how to properly fill out a log. It does not teach Hours of Service. That training is available separately.

    This Training Applies To Drivers, Dispatchers and Supervisors. 

    In addition, any other employee who reviews a driver's record of duty status, assigns loads or makes work schedules should have a working knowledge of the regulations to stay in compliance with the FMCSRs.

    Parts 392 and 396 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) address the subject of Vehicle Inspection.  All motor carriers and drivers who operate commercial motor vehicles fall under these regulations.

    Part 396 of the FMCSR requires Pre-trip and Post-trip inspections on each vehicle a driver is assigned to drive. The idea behind the requirement is to put safer vehicles on the road as a way to help prevent accidents. A thorough inspection can also help a driver avoid mechanical breakdowns and unwanted "downtime."

    This training program will address the basics of Pre-trip and Post-trip inspections, On-the-Road Inspection rules and how to handle a Roadside Inspection.

    This Training Applies to All CMV Drivers, Mechanics and Supervisors

    Experienced drivers should have a strong understanding of the hours of service regulations. In order for supervisors to understand the many stresses put on drivers on a daily basis, they too need to know and understand the hours of service regulations. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. Drivers cannot be dispatched properly if their Dispatcher / Load Planner does not have a full comprehension of the HOS. 

    During a DOT Audit, carriers may be required to produce a Dispatch Log and proof of how they track their driver’s hours to ensure compliance.  This includes log auditing and documentation, comprehension of the HOS as it applies to your operation, proof of route checking, trip documentation and a written HOS Plan & Policy.

    This training program is a review of the basic hours of service requirements found in Part 395 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR), as they apply to property-carrying vehicles.

    This training will help the supervisor gain a reasonable understanding of the hours of service regulations in order to improve scheduling and productivity pertaining to drivers.

    Applies to Managers, dispatchers and supervisors for motor carriers engaged in the transportation

    industry.  In addition, any other employee who reviews a driver's record of duty status, assigns

    loads or makes work schedules should have a working knowledge of the regulations to stay in

    compliance with the FMCSRs.
