Safe and Smart New Driver Training Program: Trip Planning

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course is designed to help CMV drivers learn the five basic steps of trip planning.

The idea behind trip planning is to design the most effective, efficient, safe, and legal route between two points.

A well thought out trip plan can mean a savings of time and money for drivers and motor carriers. A good plan can also mean a safe trip for the driver and the cargo. If a driver has a solid plan before hitting the road, they’re better able to devote all of their attention to driving.

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the paperwork required for you (the driver), your cargo, and your vehicle
  • Discuss considerations when selecting your route, along with how to read a map and use a global positioning system (GPS)
  • List vehicle and cargo restrictions
  • Describe things you should consider when estimating your trip time
  • List conditions that can affect fuel usage
