In this module, you learned that carriers have a number of responsibilities before hiring a driver, during the hiring process, and once you have hired a driver. You learned that you are responsible for your drivers’ training, and for keeping a number of records related to your drivers. You also must maintain a discipline policy for drivers, to ensure you address and remedy problems immediately.
If you haven’t done so already, take some time now to develop and write down your hiring policy, your discipline policy, and get your drivers’ records in order. If you have drivers to train, put your training plan together.
In the next module, you will learn about the most detailed aspect of training your drivers: Hours of Service.
You may now move ahead to Module 3: Hours of Service.
