Looking To Start Truck Driving

I am not sure why one company passed on me. From being on TT, it is not unusual for this to happen. Was told they declined. Onward with the one's that are interested.

Looking To Start Truck Driving

Hi everyone, so far in my search for a company sponsored training school. I have 2 conditional offers. Also a no go from one. From 3 I haven't heard anything at all. The search continues. 🙂

Looking To Start Truck Driving

I have started applying to companies with company sponsored training. So far, CFI, Swift, Knight, SNL,KLLM. One company I applied to, said they only allowed those who didn't have a CDL already or a recent graduate from truck driving school. So I moved on from them. I still have a few to apply to. Only two at this time have contacted me. But, it is early in process. 🙂

Looking To Start Truck Driving

Hi everyone, some of you know me. Others will have no idea who I am.i have been a member of TT for 6 years.i will not go into all my background. Some may remember I have a valid Class A CDL but, ZERO experience. Also I graduated from truck driving school quite a few years ago. Ok, I have just started applying to company sponsored training. So, I would be going through school again. I may not post very much but, I am an avid reader of TT, just not much of a poster. I have learned a lot on TT, thanks to Brett,Big Scott, Pack Rat, G Town, Errol V among many others. I will be 62 the 25th of this month. Staying put so I can retire from the company I work for now. A little apprehensive and nervous about this move. But, I'm sure that's normal. Thanks for listening. I'm not much of a writer lol

I Have Been A Member For Five Years

Hi, as it says I have on TT as a member for 5 years. I have alot personally to happen in these 5 years. Some may remember me, others will not. Each time I thought that I was ready to start my CDL training something would happen and I would have to postpone it. The latest was my only child, my 33 year old daughter dying in a car wreck on January 31 this year. Very painful, we were very close. I have just started again, looking for a company paid training program. I was turned down at this time by one company, who said they were not hiring in my area because of Covid 19 at this time. And another just declined me also. But, I have several applications still out there. I have learned alot from reading posts on TT. Thanks Old School, G- Town , Big Scott, Rainy or Kearsey lol,Turtle, PackRat and many others. I'm not a young guy, I will be 61 this month. Everyone around me says I'm too old and crazy for trying this. This is something I have wanted to do for some time now. So the search is on. Thanks and God Bless

Lapse of DOT Medical Card

Hi everyone, No excuse but, I let my DOT Medical Card lapse. The position I have now does not require a CDL. So my license will be downgraded to a regular license. My responsibility for this happening. I was distracted and did not realize the date had passed. I just lost my only daughter in a car wreck January 31. So my head is spinning and really down. I hate to lose CDL but, I totally understand. Any thoughts. Thanks
