Is Squire (Knight's CDL training) an accredited CDL course?

Hey thanks! That is good to hear! Thanks for taking the time to respond and explain things...makes sense now!

By the way, thanks for this great site! It's been a major help to me...and I didn't have to ask too many questions because most of my questions have already been answered in other forums.

High Road Training Program helped me ace my CDL permit. Sored 96, 96, and 92...and the only studying I did was with High Road. I'm still going to keep moving through it as I'm training as I can tell it's a super valuable tool!

Is Squire (Knight's CDL training) an accredited CDL course?

Random question I know, and it doesn't really make any difference. I'm starting class this coming Monday 10-20-14. I was just reading about some training courses are considered accredited or approved, and others aren't. Just curious is Knight's Squire Program approved/accredited by a state or federal agency. Not even 100% what that could mean as far as career goes. I'm assuming not much as long as I stay with Knight for at least a year and have a good driving record.

Any thoughts? Knowledge? Tips? Anything is appreciated.

Knight Daily Pay option...anybody currently on this plan?

@driver

I gotcha... well it's definitely something to consider. I will probably go weekly at first, but I'm glad the daily is an option seeing that there's a possibility for issues.

@buttonup

That's definitely good advice it sounds like. I will keep that in mind for when I finally hit the road.

Thanks to both of you for your help and taking the time to respond!

I use to drive for Knight and I was on Bi-Weekly Payroll and then I soon realized if they mess up and somehow you don't get paid, you have to wait for your next Payroll Date to get paid. Well guess what, that's another two weeks. Well after that happening a few times I changed it to Weekly and they still would mess up from time to time and I pretty much ended up on Bi-Weekly because they messed up so many times. After 6 months of Payroll headaches I went on Daily to solve all my issues. Worked out pretty well and I always had money but it's always nice to get one big check per week.

Well.... THAT raises another question! ha! Are they known for messing up on pay or is that just across the board with trucking companies and it just happens here and there?

Regardless...the daily pay worked out best for you then I see. Makes sense. And thanks for your response! Much appreciated. How long did you drive for them? Were you dedicated or regional or was it all OTR?

I have already set up school/training at Knight starting in a couple weeks. Also have Swift and Prime waiting for me to call back... (probably not "waiting" really HA! But they were both wanting to set me up for orientation and training and I am supposed to call back)

I am about to go ahead and pull the trigger and go with Knight for my first trucking gig. I've researched all the companies by looking here on TruckingTruth, visiting each company's site, and also talking to a recruiter at each one. I applied for a few companies, including Knight, that met my personal needs and interests.

One thing that struck my interest, not that it's a pro or con, was the daily pay. Anybody here have experience with it? What is it exactly? And would you recommend it?

Also...any other info on Knight is appreciated. Please no unfounded opinions. Facts are appreciated.

thanks!
