What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

Worked in publishing for 30 years. Business shrank and pay shrank even more. No kids or spouse at home now, so free to be on the road.

Serously considering truck driving as a career...

Charles, I'd look at your local Craigslist to get an idea of the local trucking jobs you can find. Most of them require a year's CDL driving experience.

Question about High Road Training Program

I'm hard headed, so I've repeatedly missed a test question and been halted. How/when do I advance to the next page of the program?

Bad idea for a 18 year old?

I'll go contrarian.

College doesn't get more convenient as you get older (though maturity can help you make more of the opportunity). If you have the opportunity and aptitude to go to community college now, I'd go. Unless you just want to drive til you retire, you'll need some kind of degree as a credential for an interesting job IMO (including trucking operations). "Unskilled" labor will become progressively less valuable for the next 50 years.

Aim first at a two year general studies-type degree that will get your general education requirements behind you, and start looking at requirements to transfer to an interesting bachelor's program. If you still want to drive when you're 21, decide then.
