Career in trucking

double-quotes-start.png

Hello everyone, I’m excited to be here and to be exploring the idea of getting my CDL. I’m just getting my feet wet and trying to determine the best route for me and the best company. I’m 28 years old, I have a wife and 2 little boys at home and also a navy veteran. I’m currently living in El Cajon, CA just outside of San Diego. The only company I’ve spoke to over the phone has been swift and they seemed to hit my wickets but we will see how it all plays out. They told me starting out in my area I could be home every other day maybe every few days with a $1000 guarantee weekly.

Welcome to Trucking Truth, Joshua!

First of all; the best of the best reading, starts here:

And the next best step, is : Apply For Paid CDL Training

Before (or) After, perhaps:

I know, we sure do have a WEALTH of information, right here!

Just a little 'nudge' to help guide you, not offend you! Sorry about the wall of links!!!

So many forum members and mods ARE military veterans, and will be along shortly, to answer any and all questions related there, too!!

PackRat is a Mod to look into; one of SO MANY! Similar background.

IDMtnGal, as well...... look up these two!

Not to LEAVE ANY OUT, just a few quick thoughts on the top of my head, for now. So many companies are extremely veteran grateful, with costs, training, etc. and even extra/additional training pay.

So glad you are looking into finally moving on with your dream; AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

~ Anne & Tom ~

ps: My dad & Brother are both (late) retired Navy.

Thank you for all that information definitely gives me a place to start. I’m sort of at a wall right now on where I should start and how I should get there.

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.
