Attempting My CDL A

Thanks for your input. Definitely good advice.

This is something I had wanted to do years and years ago, I just hope I haven't missed the bought.

I'll be sure to reach out as make my way.

Thank you for the words of advice!

Thanks

First things first take advantage of High Road CDL Training Program to get your permit. We strongly feel Paid CDL Training Programs are the best way to enter the industry, you can even Apply For Paid CDL Training right here on this website. You fill out 1 application and its sent to many different companies. When you're accepted into their program you're guaranteed a job if you successfully obtain your CDL. Private schools will help anyone with money get their license even if they're unlikely to be hired due to criminal or driving record issues.

We have a couple O/O on this forum but an overwhelming majority of us are company drivers. Many experienced drivers here make over 70k or more a year without the stress of running a business. My advice is to focus on getting your license and putting it ATLEAST a solid year as a company driver before even considering O/O. Most rookies make mistakes. Make those on the companies dime, learn freight lanes, track the expenses such as fuel and maintenance then decide if you want to go that route. Nearly all of us have decided that staying a company driver is the best way financially.

Welcome to the forum, don't be afraid to ask any other questions you have.

Welcome, Charles~!!

Keep the 'short term' views in sight before thinking of O/O, and start here, if you haven't already:

If you go 'top to bottom' accordingly, this will help immensely. If you choose to 'skip around' as I often do, start with Brett's Book. It's free to read, right here.

When you dig through all that, or even PRIOR, the veterans of this site will be available to answer ANY and ALL questions, along the way!!

Best wishes, and again... .WELCOME TO TT~!

About Us

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
