Course Description

It is best for drivers to stop the vehicle if they notice any unusual noise or think there is a problem with the vehicle. Experienced drivers know when a truck sounds unusual or if there is a problem with the motor or other parts of the vehicle. If you are not sure, pull over and check out the problem. This program is a guide to help drivers avoid excessive downtime due to a disabled vehicle.
