The third basic in the CSA program is titled driver fitness. Driver fitness does not refer to how old a person is, how much they weigh, or how large their neck is. The primary focus of this basic is does the driver have a valid medical card and appropriately endorsed CDL ready to present to the office conducting the inspection. As a commercial driver you don’t want violations under the driver fitness basic on your CSA record, it refers to you being a qualified driver.

This week is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.  Many people do not know or understand the amount of time a Professional Driver invests in their profession. The demands or a Professional Driver's schedule often do not fit into the conventional 8-5 workday. It is not uncommon for a Professional Driver to begin their day between 10:00 PM and 2:00 AM. Many drivers work 11-14 hours a day and might invest as many as 60-70 hours per week in their career. FirstFleet is a carrier that is dedicated to meeting the needs of our business partners with excellence. Much...

Points are multiplied by 2 the second year, and by 1 the third year, then fall off your CSA driver record. Warnings g...

The FMCSA Unsafe Driving Basic is impacted by moving vehicle violations. Speeding is a common violation that influences this basic ranking. One critical area we would like for you to pay special attention to is reduced speed zones - doing 35 in 25 mph zone. Violations like these give officers a reason to stop you for a more extensive inspection - which is a burden on your available time.  Please watch your speed, slow down, and pay special attention to changing speed limits.  Remember warnings count on the CSA record, just as ...

Regarding Fatigued Driving (Hours-of-Service) Basic: A commercial driver log book not being current is a reason for the DOT to look further in their roadside inspection.

At FirstFleet our goal is to keep the roads a safe place for all motorists, and we appreciate all that you do to support this charge. Please help us better meet this goal by ensuring your logs are current before you begin any chang...
