Not ****ed or angry...just when people tell folks on here that's it's a disservice to get a CDL without school is pure BS...like they're actually ruining their career by going this way is what jerks me... There is more than one way to skin a cat ...I don't need a pat on the back or a high five ...I'm just saying nothing is impossible my man...if u want something bad, if u really want it you will get it no matter what road u take is all I'm Saying

Davor M.

I'm sure you realize that there are hardly any new drivers that have an uncle who owns a trucking company that they can drive OTR with for a year. Your words in old posts.

But you seem a little p*ssed or angry that no one is giving you credit for what you've been able to accomplish.

I'm glad you made it Davor M., and nobody is saying someone like you with a year of OTR experience (but no school) shouldn't be considered equal to everyone else.

You have had a hard path to get to where you are today, harder than most and deserving of being respected. But you gotta show respect to get respect.

And you were much more respectful when you were first in the forum than you are now. What's changed?

This is TRUCKING TRUTH after all.

I am gonna work for my super trucker uncle, he bought another truck that we are working on so it can hit the road but in the mean time I did get a job with United VAn Lines....I do get a 401k which they match...I do get dental and health insurance which is available after 90 days...I do get paid vacations and holidays, it is a w2 and not a 1099... I get paid 19$ hour for the labor (unloading/loading) and 32 cpm... I do run paper logs...they give me 25$ a day for food and pay for the hotel of my choosing whenever I do long distance ...I do get about 1200-1300 a week doing this and I can show h my check stubs...I drive a 2013 Volvo ...

The reason I said what I said is because you guys say it's a "disservice" to get a cdl without going to school, it's not...you can get job without school...I'm not a lazy guy I will put in physical work, I will drive and that's why I'm Capable of making over 1k a week ...so i think it's ridiculous that u guys tell people on here that's it's impossible and a waste of time...it's not and I'm living proof...if y'all want pictures or whatever I'll post em... So go ahead and call my uncle a super trucker, that's fine lol...guy makes over 200k a year...

And as far as a insurance ? If you have a good driving record, you WILL get a insured , pass your background check you will get hired, pass your drug screen you will get hired... So what you guys on this site say is pure bull**** in my opinion...I e been on this site for 10 months and I've been reading every single post and you all had me believing that I wasn't gonna be able to get a job because I didn't go to school, and now since I have a 1200+ a week job without school driving a 18 wheeler...you guys are talking nothing but nonsense ...

I understand that you're trying to give good advice , and t is really good advice but at the same time to say it's a "disservice " to get your CDL that way is bull**** in my opinion ...having a CDL is not a disservice, no matter how u get it ...because at the end we all have to pass the same test... If u can pass it, that means you do have some skills and knowledge about what you're testing for...I learned more from my relative than I would have from a school, and I can promise you that because I got more training from my uncle than I would have from a school that had me behind a desk reading a book and watching videos... Everybody is here trying to make a living with a CDL, so no matter how one gets this prize, we all passed the same test...we are all trying to make a living...if he was wasn't able to handle a rig he wouldn't be able to get the CDL

Davor, there are all kinds of ways to get in this business. Many of them have unusually high rates of failure. You are fortunate, and we are thrilled at your success. Unfortunately many who took your route ended up with a minor fender bender on their record and are now finding it very difficult to get hired anywhere.

Anybody who wants to work for the major carriers with tons of benefits and beautifully maintained equipment, will find the most prudent path to be the one we recommend.

It isn't some rogue opinion we developed on our own, it is the standard that the mainstream players in this business all go by.

By gettin your CDL through a relative he didn't do you a "disservice" as old school mentioned...I got mine without a school, got hired on within a week, no problems getting insurance...and working now, making close to 1200 a week ...that's without school...so everything is possible, CDL drivers are in high demand, as long as u can prove to them that you can safely handle a rig, you should be good to go...good luck!!!
