      That is because State of Mi requires it.

      Maybe because you are not a resident of Mi. Dunno.

      Unless it's changed. It's optional for O/O, but mandatory for (fleet owner) drivers at L1.

      Made the initial phone call about 30-40 days after I quit, they said it should be coming within 90 days, I called at 90 days and I got angry because they hadn't sent it out, it was in my mailbox the next morning!

      I am very happy where I am but I would still recommend Bolt as a school of expediting for any newbies

      As an anti-spam measure, it's nearly impossible for a newly registered member to post any URL links until they have a certain number of posts under their belt.

      Whenever someone new tries to post a URL the system rejects the post and an entry shows up in the logs. The vast majority of those log entries are from people who joined up just to post a spam link. Such an anti-spam net does occasionally catch someone trying to post a legitimate link, such as with this thread and over in the dashcam thread, but it's rare (though still regrettable). I don't monitor the spam logs on a daily basis, but if I am aware of a legitimate attempt at the time it happens, I'll edit the post and put the link in there for them.

      Everyone who joins up gets the following on-screen message:

      It doesn't take all that many posts to get out from under the watchful eye of the software, but it's a number at which most spammers won't waste their time trying to reach the threshold. It is pretty funny when the logs show a more determined new user spammer with 1 or 2 or a dozen attempts at posting a link, then they go and make several nonsensical replies ("me too" and "I agree" and "I was wondering about that, thanks!") in random threads to get past the "predetermined number of posts." But those kinds of posts alert me to take a look at the logs in the first place and I'll set them to have all of their posts Moderated, which generally results in them never posting again, because they get a Notice about that, too, and once they are aware that their posts are being monitored they realize the jig is up.

      But all things considered, the anti-spam configurations are doing an excellent job at blocking spam.

      This is a con oriented company, very deceiving. I would not trust my freight with these guys. Customers, Vendors, Employees be vary caution with these guys. There is a lot of fraudulent activity going on wit this guys. They target high value extremely hot shipments and they miss handle the freight. DON'T TRUST THEM, DON'T USE THEM, DON'T WORE FOR THEM. Proper authorities started a case on this criminal group.

      Way to go posting a negative comment on your first post.
      Sounds like a disgruntled owner operator.

      Thanks!
      We're all aware that companies which target extremely hot shipments are nefarious ...
      Case? What type of criminal activity?

      VS Services ( carrier ) was caught back solicitation customer, while running our shipments, and was reported on 411 freight guard. They disliked that fact so much, that took it to this very unprofessional levels, by threats via emails directly to us, and posting negative reviews on social media, as well as here. Using multiple accounts, and involving their friends, and family now, over 20 negative reviews are posted with in few days, with false information about our company, while Millhouse has never done any business with any of them, other than VS. Legal action was already taking towards VS Services for their hostile actions, breach of contract, and defamation.
