Finally getting the ball rolling on my new career!!!

Good luck dirty bird. I don't think you'll have to worry about offers. I am in cdl school in baxley and decided to start getting prehires yesterday. My phone burnt up today with responses!! scheider is at the top of my short list also and I had good conversation with the recruiter about otr tanker positions out of savannah. Wish u well with your decision for a new career. I grew up in bolingbroke just up the road from u and graduated from mary persons in forsyth.

Thank you six string. My ultimate goal is to try to run southeastern states after paying my dues. I really have no desire to see Montana in february behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler and I greatly respect and admire all those truckers that have the balls to do that year after year.

Thank you trucking truth!

Just want to thank all of you for making this site a one stop source for any information someone looking to get into trucking needs! After reading brett's book and soaking in all the good info in the blogs and forum, I have decided after years in the printing business to make trucking my new career. My son is grown now and I am looking for new challenges and trucking is one of the few vocations that welcome older folk (I am 55). I am starting Coastal Pines Tech here in Baxley on Monday and already have permit w/Tanker/doubles/passenger/school bus done. In Georgia there should be no reason not to get a cdl. The entire 220 hour course costs only 1450.00 with 1000.00 of that paid by a grant without income requirements. The 450.00 you pay is for stuff like dot exam/permit/mvr record drug test and books. 450.00 and 8 weeks for a new career? SOLD! Since I have clean mvr and no criminal history I am hoping for something regional. Schneider has openings for regional tanker out of savannah at present. I can go otr if need be for six months or so to check that box but in a perfect world I would like to avoid the far north once it get nasty. Thank you all once again for all you do for new drivers!
