Common Sense Disclosure
Learn 2 Truck is not a physical location that can teach you how to be a Professional Truck Driver. Learn 2 Truck is a website that I created to share my experience getting my CDL and becoming a company truck driver. I write guides and helpful posts. While I can do my best to try and explain what I think needs to be done in a certain situation, you are ultimately the one who has to make the final decision on everything you do. I am not liable for anything. Basically what I am saying is, what if you decide you want to become a Professional Truck Driver using the guides and tips I provide? That’s great, I stand by the content I provide. However, if something happens along your journey, I am NOT responsible for it because you read a guide on my website. I call this the Common Sense Disclosure because you have to use common sense while driving a truck and making decisions along your journey.
Truck Simulator Disclosure
While Truck Simulators provide a very realistic experience, using a Truck Simulator is NOT actual driving experience. Truck Simulators excel at learning how to back a trailer, but once you are out on the road the physics are not exactly the same. It is still very realistic driving. However, NOTHING compares to actually driving a Semi Truck and trailer loaded weighing 80,000 lbs. up and down steep mountain grades. Receive actually training before driving a Semi Truck.
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Many of the links to other websites on Learn2Truck.com are affiliate links.
This means, if you click my link and purchase a product/service from the website, I will receive a kickback (commission) for sending a paying customer their way.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on learn2truck.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from learn2truck.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay learn2truck.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more or less by clicking through my affiliate link.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
Amazon affiliate links.
learn2truck.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.
Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliate links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click”, unless otherwise denoted.
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
