Company wants me to pay

If a company will hire me, but they want me to pay for my DOT physical upfront, but they are a small company with only 31 trucks, how can I find out if they are reputable.

Need advice from truckers with pets on truck

I am about to take my cat on board, and he has never ridden on a truck before. He is 2 years old. Is there any special thing I should do to make him more relaxed so he can get used to being on a moving truck.

How to get a suspended CDL reinstated

According to Texas state law a CDL will be automatically suspended for 1 year for leaving the scene of an accident. My CDL was suspended last April for that, and will be reinstated in. 3 months. But a cop said I knocked over a metal pole that had a stop sign and street sign on it. And my wife was in the passenger seat and said I didn’t do it. I never heard anything. Does anybody have a suggestion of how I could get my CDL back sooner? I couldn’t afford a trucking legal service at the time.

Expungement process

Does anybody know how the expungement process works. Can a do the process myself to get the two tickets removed from my record. And what do the courts accept as a valid reason?

Companies that take accidents

In November 2016 I knocked over a metal pole that had a stop sign and street sign on it. I did not notice this and drove on to my pickup point. 30 minutes later an officer approached my truck and told me what I had done. He wrote up an accident form and left. He also wrote 2 tickets the next day for leaving scene of accident, and careless driving. My CDL was suspended in April this year. My CDL will be reinstated in April 2018. Western Express told me they are a second chance company, and Central Oregon Transport said they would take me also. I even considered letting my CDL go and going through another trucking company who trains. I though that might be easier. Any suggestions anyone.
