Laura F.'s Bio

I'm 49, single with no children. Twice divorced. Have been living in ND for the past 3 years. The opportunities available there for CDL drivers are tremendous. So, here I sit in Va. waiting for school to start March 2. I did have two beautiful little white Maltese girls. I had to put them down at 15 and 16 years of age and I miss them a lot. Basically I'm just sitting here in limbo waiting to start school and start a new life and new career.

Truck drivers with weapons permits

Thank you I just started getting nervous after I filled out my profile and I started thinking maybe all the guys on this website are not good guys so I just threw that out there just in case anyone starts to try any funny business and I am a tae kwon do expert just for the record. Happy Trails! O watch out foxes bite " ouch".....

Truck drivers with weapons permits

I'm thinking this was a dumb question minus all the replies but I was just curious I haven't started school yet so I didn't know the answer that question

Swift training

Hi Everyone 😉 I found it online and emailed copies to my recruiter and she says it should be good, she will let me know of any problems. So just a little extra leg work on my part was worth it. I'm so nervous and excited at the same time. My friends and family have always said I was a free spirit so this should be a perfect fit for me. I'm doing well on the practice exams but actually getting behind the wheel of a big rig wow.... I know I can do it 😁 thanks for all the advice. See ya'll on the road soon... Beep beep!

By the way, thank you for this sight. This is where I have found all my information and have been studying for the CDL. I find it to be very helpful.

Swift training

Hi everyone. I am suppose to start Swift training in Utah March 2, 2015. When talking to the recruiter on the phone she asked me if I had any drug convictions and I said no which I do not. Then later I told her that I had been charged back in 2007 but it was dismissed which the charge was dismissed. Now she wants me prove to her that the charge was dismissed. This is public information anybody can go to the state website and find this information out. After speaking with my attorney he wants a couple hundred dollars to fax this information to her. Over the last two years I have had two jobs one with Frito-Lay one with Right-A-Way applicators. At Frito-Lay I drove a box truck delivering chips on a route and with Right-A-Way I drove a water truck towing a water trailer. I had to pass background checks, get Dot physicals and take drug screens which I did and passed. Now the March 2nd date is up in the air pending I prove to her the charge was dismissed. I wish I would of just kept my mouth shut. Seems like it doesn't always pay to be honest.
