Alaska CDL

Thank you, Anne A. I learned that after I posted the 1st time. I've since added Alaskian needs advice. Also to Stevo Reno thank you also. The training companies want me to change to a lower 48 state, all besides Alaska, parts of New York, parts of Florida, South Dakota, and some training companies don't except drivers with Washington state licenses. I really don't want to give up my Alaska residency. I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on another way to go about this. I just want to work in the lower 48 as an O.T.R. driver and if I get the chance to drive through Canada it's a plus. I already have a C.D.L.-B with a learners permit and a current physical card. I just have to get advice on how to get bumped to a C.D.L.-A without giving up my Alaskian driver's license. I wanted a learning company like Swift, Werner, Schneider or such to pick me up so all i'd have to do was give them a year of my life to pay them back for the training.

Alaskian needs advice.

Thank you PackRat and Bruce K. for your comments. I will try again with the recuiter but they did say Alaska, parts of New York, parts of Florida, South Dakota, and Washington state are on the list for some of these training companies to not accept their licenses. They told me to just get another state as my residency and they would take me, but I really don't want to give up my Alaska residency. I have a cdl-b and just want to get an cdl-a so I can do O.T.R. driving down in the lower 48.

Alaskian needs advice.

Hi, my name is Nat and I recently came down to the lower 48 from Alaska, to get work in O.T.R. driving. I tried getting on with a training company like swift, werner, and schneider but they won't accept my Alaska drivers license. I do have a cdl-b and I made sure to get a learner's permit. I also made sure my physical was current. So trying to figure out why these companies don't accept Alaska licenses. I was told to just get another state as my residence and then they would take me. My cabin is in Alaska and I would rather not give up my residency there. So, any advice would be helpful.

Alaska CDL

Hi, my name is Nat and I have questions. 1st is I came down from alaska and am having troubles getting on with one of the training type's of company's, ie., Swift, werner, prime, and schneider. So, they are telling me they don't accept driver's with Alaska licenses. Any advice would be helpful. 2nd I had made sure to get my learners permit and I made sure my physical was up to date before leaving. So why are they not wanting any drivers from alaska?
