Getting started at od without. experience

Indeed I will reply! Thanks for bumping it G-Town.

Erik, you should update your location on your profile. I don't know where you're located, and opportunities at OD terminals will vary according to location. Some terminals don't have OD's "school" for folks who come in without their indigocardCDL. Other terminals do have this opportunity, and some terminals that have the school do not require time spent at the dock.

E.g., at my home terminal, you don't have to work on the dock to be enrolled in OD's school. In fact, people off the street are hired to learn how to drive a truck, and then can choose whether they wanna be a P&D, combo, or linehaul driver. Keep in mind that while in OD's school, you are being paid as an employee, and you're paid well. I came to OD after going to a private CDL school, and during training I was making around $1,000 a week - AFTER taxes.

Feel free to PM me as well. I'm here to help as much as possible.

Thanks for the information, I will try to figure it out for more. Keep sharing such informative response.
