Gaining my CDL the cheapest way

Well I signed up with Prime Trucking. I'm heading to MO from FL tonight. This should give me the necessary education and the requirements for most insurance companies. This is just step one of my multi step plan on being a crane operator. If anyone has any good tips on becoming a crane operator I sure would like to hear what they have to say.

Gaining my CDL the cheapest way

Thanks for the added info guys. Ill take it all into consideration. I was thinking I would get my permit since that is easy enough and hopefully my buddy can get me into where he is working as a crane operator and if I can prove myself as an asset maybe they will help me get my full CDL. As for why the oil field is slow its mostly do do with we basically have too much oil right now. Our cupith flowith overith so production has slowed and the price is really low cause we have no were to put it. At least that's how i understand it. I could be way off base though.

Gaining my CDL the cheapest way

Thanks guys. I looked into prime a while back and they did hire in central FL at the time but now I live in south west FL. Ill give them a call to see if they hire in this area or not. I don't believe I'm cut out for OTR trucking. I do however need my CDL A license to get a job either operating cranes or local driving like I would be doing for the oil companies. I know times are tough in the oil fields right now but it will come back eventually.

Gaining my CDL the cheapest way

Editor's Note: Did you know there are paid CDL training programs? These are complete CDL training programs offered by trucking companies that require little or no money out of pocket, give the best training possible, and you'll have a job waiting for you as soon as you complete the training. Why pay for training when you can be paid to train by a top tier company that needs drivers now? In fact, at Trucking Truth we prefer paid CDL training over private CDL training.

I can study and pass my CDL tests by myself with no help from a school so I was wondering how to do the next part. I need practice driving a truck and then I need a truck for the test. How can I accomplish this the cheapest way. Any advice or guidance here would be very much appreciated. My goal is to regain my CDL with a tanker endorsement and haul water or sand for the oil fields. I had my CDL about 16 years ago and drove a small tanker truck built for pumping septic tanks. Back then I had family that let me use their truck now I'm kinda out of luck in that aspect.

Looking for a specific Tanker Trailer

Hey guys. I have a question. I'm trying to locate a very specific type of tanker trailer. If someone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. Apparently the type of trailer is a Fruehauf and it hauls most likely grain sand or dry cement. It was born in 1982 and apparently is 53' long. I'm having a hard time finding this trailer in this length. This is pretty much all the info I have of the trailer. I need to find it so I can gather more data about it like all its other dimensions and reflective tape placement. Thanks for your help guys.

I want to Drive Tankers

Thanks for the info guys. I will look at Schneider and see what they are all about. Im leaning heavily towards hauling water for the oil companies and it seems like these are the cake jobs that may be easiest to get into fresh from school. Ill let you know if I find other avenues. BTW MRC I'm in Sanford FL right now but I'll relocate anywhere that speaks english so long as I can make decent money.

I want to Drive Tankers

I use to drive tanker truck about 15 years ago for about 5 years. I switched careers and been behind a desk for a long time. I want to get back into driving tanker trucks. Ultimately I want to haul water or fuel for the oil rigs. I have been looking at the company sponsored programs and I'm not seeing any places that offer Tanker in the first year. Can anyone help point me in a good direction to get my CDL's back and get into a tanker career quicker. I'm not opposed to driving other types of trucks but I would like to train with what I want to drive so when it comes time to get a job at a place that offers water hauling positions I will be good to go. Thanks.
