Thanks for the input guys.. I took their online tests last night and passed them all so im just waiting to hear from one of them so i can go to Millington, TN for the school... Im really nervous and upset that i have to leave my 3 year old boy and 3 month old girl but I desperately need money to give them everything they deserve. They told me the training was two weeks and orientation was the last week? Also im confused on the pay cuts for the schooling... One person told me $30 a week and the computer says $75 a week. ?

If you're worried now about leaving your kids for school. How is it going to be if you're out on the road for 3-5 weeks at a time?

That's actually what i was referring to, being gone on the road.

Oh i see. I do have my permit and have had it for two years but never could find anyone with a truck to let me use for the road test. I have an up to date physical as well so hopefully im ahead of the game.

I understand your guys point of view but im assuming as a truck driver you don't have to fight multiple drunk/methed out/ pillhead on a daily basis. My point being that it was not worth the money to see children being beat half to death by lowlifes or killed in car accidents... Its just not worth the money for the stress and heartachen of all the crap cops have to see and do everyday. My wife is wanting to leave her 8.00 job and go back to cutting hair in her spare time... To pretty much be a house wife while keeping our kids out of daycares. I am just curious if i start trucking if my wife and kids just couldnt come with me on occasion. We really dont have alot of bills each month, around $1600-1800. Im just confused about what to do.

Need help starting a trucking career.

Ok guys and gals I need some help. I am a 25 year old guy and am in between careers at the moment. I was previously a deputy sheriff in my county here in southeastern Kentucky and since I have a newborn girl & 3 year old boy I decided to try something making more money ( than $14.00/hr ) and something safer so my kids will have their daddy around through out their lives. Im assuming I will have to be gone from home a lot for the first few years since I'm just starting out but I'm trying to determine the best company to start out with. I only have my class a cdl permit with doubles/triples endorsement. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
