If I were you tax time is here I would pay what I owe them to get you out of the school debt and then go your way or you might get 45 cpm.

Flatbed job versus box trailers

Hi all I am going to school in Feb and should have my cdl in mid march. I am 46, I have worked in a factory, I do not mind getting dirty (if that comes with the flatbed) TMC transportation is hiring flatbed drivers since I am a greenhorn which would be a better fit?

Getting ready for school forCDL's-what is really necessary?

Hi, my name is Allen and I am getting ready to go to school for my CDL's. I wanted to know if it would be good for me to buy a GPS and a laptop before I get started? I have I have worked in a factory for 25 years and I am ready for a change. I have always been around farm equipment and dump trucks but have never driven any rigs. I see these big cities, do the GPS really help you get around in a big city, because I have never driven in a big city. Any help would be great thank you. Allen
