Yes we do teach different Class's in Driver Etiquette - In Cars, Trucks, Buses, and Motorcycles.

The Certified Truck Training (Click on link to see all Certified Training Curriculum.) program has 16 hours Commercial Transport Theory, then moves into the on road practical portion.  


Driving etiquette relates to the general courtesy rules which communities expect the operators of vehicles to follow while driving. Use of the term: dates back to the early 1900's and the use of horse-drawn carriages. Good driving etiquette typically involves being courteous and staying alert which varies by vehicle, situation, and location (etiquette for driving a car involves different rules than etiquette for driving an RV). Failure to adhere to this behavior can lead to increased risk of road collisions, anxiety, and to acts of road rage. Driving etiquette can extend beyond in-vehicle actions: "When a courteous driver scrapes the fender or inflicts minor damage to a parked car without its owner present, he leaves a note giving his name, his telephone number, and the name of the insurance company. If the owner is present, the courteous driver exchanges insurance information politely and contacts the proper authorities right away without incident". Breaches in driving etiquette can often be addressed amiably with a simple and immediate expression of apology. The general guiding principle behind driver etiquette is "one good turn deserves another". It is considered vital that everyone adheres to good driving etiquette. Speeding and aggressive driving, both examples of poor driving etiquette, have been cited as negative factors related to rural highways.
Drivers need education about driving etiquette to prevent them getting into accidents.

It was a busy day at the training yard today. With two Pre-trips going on at the same time, Two trucks running at the same time the students really had to concentrate. These guys got a great attitude and are quite equal in pre-trip skills. It was impressive watching them do there pre-trips as if they were choreographed together.

We will see how they do as the month rolls on as they are both on the longer Certified Course.
