Ok sir thanks for the response.

One economic concept you need to know; Every company in the entire world is using their employees to make money!

When you are learning, the company is losing money by having you on their payroll. The have to pay for equipment, maintenance, insurance, etc. The company is also losing income because your trainer, who should be an experienced driver, will not be able to complete as many loads/miles when he is training you.

When you go solo and start hauling your first loads, you will not be as productive as an experienced driver. As you become more efficient and can better manage the driving and work requirements your pay will increase. I am now in my 8th month driving solo. I went through a company CDL training program and made $400/week while with my trainer. I then started out with making $0.28/ mile and had one of the oldest, highest mileage trucks in the fleet. I am now up to $0.40/mile and was handed the keys to a 2014 with 5,000 miles.

There are basically two ways to get your CDL. First, if you have the funds available, you can pay for it up front, or with a loan, and go to a private school. Unless you go to school and have other employment, there iis no income until you start work. Or, you can attend a company program, be paid a small amount while you are in training, then go to work for that company.

There is no right or wrong way to get your CDL. It just depends on which path best fits your situation. Either way, at the end of one year, you will be sitting at just about the same position whichever path you choose.
