Need help with getting cdl

Hi,heres my history and advice to you: since 1996 im a professional car audio/video/security installer ,i have 2 years in usa,nj,as that field is good and baad because here everything goes by season,i decided to be a truck driver,i went MVC my self,i pay $125 for the right to all test and permit,i got the answers of all and every single test for the CDL,i about 1 week,i past all 6 test alone ,my self in MVC,then i just got to the cdl school to get the driving lesson on the road/street,also they took me to my road test on MVC,finally i got my CDL in the first shot, CLASS A, i never figuredout my self in a truck.

second part of my history; the school recomends me a lots of BIG COMPANIES FOR TRAINING,i never agreed to do that,what i did was went to the road with a friend of mine,and get some of his advices and experience,then after that i where so locky,his boss put me in one of his trucks,and here i am,driving everyday from newark,nj,to penssilvania,masachusets,atlantic city,coneticut,etc, so far im earning good money without been struggle by a companie paid training,cause i got a couple of friends graduated from the same school,they went to 2 of those big companies,they still under training while im making the money i expected to make,so good luck my friend,if i did it,you can do it to.

In complete honesty. If you cant answer the question on your own, dont buy a truck. Wait till you have the experience and background built up and when you can answer that question you'll know if the O/O lifestyle is for you.

Good luck to ya sir.

Wich gps to choose

hi me again,i have a 560 dezl garmin 5",wich is good so far,it didnt take to a low bridge yet,butheres an example,i parked at newark,nj,everydaymy trip is to coneticut,i now know i take I-95 north al the way until i get to Ct,of corse,depending to wich place or part of Ct i go,but my garmin afteri pass the GWB keeps telling me to take many exits on my way to CT,it seems to be many low bridges on his route/maps,wich they are not on the road at all,on my way back the problem is worst,taking I-95 south to newark,nj,the second problem is that instead of go straight to a place,it makes me to go all round to place i go,wich results in time and fuel,delays etc, my question to you is,should i buy a rand mcnally or a cobra trucking gps? i have two friends that have cobra,they said that they had them for about a year,and so far they are good,besides that i hear rand mcnally freeze,and other than that what do you think about copilot app for android,i been thinkin of that long time ago,but that trucking app is $150,waiting for your advice and sugestions,thanks.

Advice on a specific trucking school

Hi everyone,I'm Emmanuel,few weeks ago I had some questions about what. Trucking school to choose or go,we'll my reality right now is the follow:

I'm not working since two month,but I went to 3 diferential schools to check and ask some questions,two of them ,one is 2600 the other is 3000$,but what I really can afford now is ,( sorry to mention it,but I have to) EZ-WHEELS ,in secacus,they have diferential pakagesfrom 400$ to 2575$,I'm planing to go with the 800$ one,but the thing is there's not enought hours of practice for that price( and some of you might said,what else can you expect my friend) ,the thing is I need to get my cdl at least,then finde a company that take recent cdl grad, and get experience with them.

Why this whole history,well I went direct to MVC,my self and I pass,general knowledge,air brakes,combination veh,tankers,passenger,and doubles and triples, and all the schools still charge me like if I'm starting from ZERO with them.

Any advice from all of you,that are on the road for years,and are ahead from me,PLEASE ARE WELLCOME!THANKS IN ADNVANCE.
