A number of recommended practices for improving training effectiveness for entry-level CMV drivers are supported by this synthesis:

o

Industry-wide acceptance of, and adherence to, standards put forward by the Professional Truck Driving Institute (PTDI) as a minimum requirement for entry-level (2nd seat) drivers and for the certification of driver trainers.

o

Finishing training for 1st seat (solo) drivers.

o

Substitution of multimedia instructional materials, delivered via CD/DVD-ROM, for traditional classroom presentations relying on printed materials.

o

Introduction or expansion of appropriate uses of affordable simulation options.

o

Expansion of the use of skid pads to train beginning drivers about stopping distances under different load configurations; to use different brake systems (including all ABS, mixed ABS, and non-ABS); and to experience the consequences of driving on a wet surface for handling and stopping the vehicle, including skid control.

o

Employment of videos, in concert with testimonials by experienced drivers, to give entry-level trainees a realistic orientation to health, wellness, and lifestyle issues and to provide fitness-to-drive instruction.
