As daai CDL nou in November verval wat dan ?

Maybe it is only the temporary slip that expires?

That is what I was thinking, TVB mentioned they will send him his card.  :peepwall:

Thanks everyone!! :)

Yes only the slip will expire, the license card will be posted to me and that remains valid but then you have to renew it on a yearly basis on H2a Visa. In other words it will say valid till 1 Dec because then my Visa expires but next year I do just the eye test at DMV centre and then pay 41usd and get another one valid for the new year :thumleft:

CDL is "Commercial drivers licence' and class A is similar to code 14 in SA.
They do not except SA licence for commercial driving.
Then you can do add ons like: School bus and Hazmat but need to be a citizen
I can do doubles and triples as well as tanker vehicle endorsement but that is just a test on the DMV computer and easy
I have studied it but no need to go through the extra cost since I only need tractor and trailer (horse and trailer)
It is big in America Chris wrt safety and has changed a lot recently for added safety and awareness
Easiest way is to go through a Cdl school but that is 3 weeks and a LOT of money.
Groete

Waiting for the sialage packing tractor and can read and post quickly.
We move a lot of tons of sialage a day, up to 20 loads per truck and the weight on the scale is 100 000
pounds loaded!

We have other work as well, and currently avg 13hrs work a day and 5 hrs sleep. :) Rest is making food, doing washing and then traveling to and from work - the fields

This soft drinks taste takes me back to 2005/6 Iraq.
Weird how you associate a taste with memories, same goes for smell

That is what sometimes triggers PTSD

This however a good taste and memory. A memory of comradery and strenghwithin a group....teamwork  :)

I still need to take pictures of horses, this truly is cowboy world!!

Cleaning the side mirrors and windscreen at least 4 times a day. All depends on your riding and the chopper operator, sometimes that spout gives you a blast on the windscreen especially when you need to follow tight behind and he get it wrong!

Day 5 with my semi hauling 100 000pound (Gross) loads of sialage.
The last week only 5 hours sleep a night and 13 or 14 hrs work days.
I may be going to Oklahoma soon (tomorrow) for 2 weeks for another sialage contractor at a huge feedlot.
2 x feeders, both with 55 000 cattle

Have a good weekend :thumleft:

Then we will move to Oklahoma Guyman for a few weeks to chop, weather depending :peepwall:

Today was the first time ever I had to change trailers all by myself, and seems I will have to hook the flatbed again to load the sialage chopper.
Eish, this is interesting times  :laughing4:
