Local driving vs over the road driving

Thanks heavy

I don't have a problem with hard work and no touch freight is not mandatory at all for me .

The company ( dootson ) does help you find employment after graduation.

And from all the truck drivers I've just walked up to and struck up a conversation with and various locations , ( gas stations, donut shops etc) they say they were impressed with anyone they worked with whom was a dootsen grad .

And I happened to live very close to irwindale and city of industry. Which judgeing by the huge amount of trucks I see on the street I assume there are plenty of trucking jobs y be had .

Thanks for the help ...

Josh

Local driving vs over the road driving

I'm in the process of getting my permit and paying my own way thru training to get my cdl and ideally would like to work local and be home every or most nights Is this possible for rookie drivers . Or will I need to do o t r first in order to get experience.

Asking because as I've read in other post this industry is never what you planned and expected , but I do have a certain goal and plan .

Is this realistic to drive local as a rookie???

My back and butt starting to hurt.

Please exercise , warm up and stretch makes a difference also about 5 times a day grab a pole or anything sturdy and twist to one side then the other you'll be amazed how much your back pain will ease up. But really planks ,mountain bike n and back extension s will do the best

Drug testing before trucking school

I'm confused I was under the impression that urine is 30 day back test and hair folicle go's back 90 days . Can anyone clarify these with any certainty . Or just about or maybe this many days .

If it go's back 6 months 180 days Then this may be helpful to know but it all seems very speculative on a thing that could affect your entire truck ing career .

Please attempt to clarify

Getting my cdl permit , where do i start ?

Thanks man I appreciate you taking the time and giving me all these great tools , I will definitely take the high road

Training program

But for my medical clearance, do I even need that for my cdl permit in California? , will my general doctor do . Or does it have to be a certain one that's state approved ?

Getting my cdl permit , where do i start ?

I'm gonna go for my class a at a local trucking school. Dootsen

And the instructor said before I start lessons I should get my cdl permit . Or I will be confined to their parking lot.

They have a program that takes you thru this but do I even need them for getting the permit .

Besides the written test and medical exam what else do I need to do . I have a cdl book from dmv and I'm reading it
