Sure Its a loan if I have good credit I would get a better rate when I applied for a loan at a bank then if I had bad credit Common since really.Not everyone can go a whole month without pay there are bills mouths to feed ect ect. He asked because he probably can't go that long without pay or he knows it will be really hard. I give him lots of options.I didn't just shove Swift down his trout . You have over a 1000 post I am sure at lest half of them where you arguing with people! How can you have a argument with a man who thinks he is smarter and has more information then GOOGLE! You won bud I give up you mad this post about you.

The name of the site is tucking truth so I am being truthful as much as I can! Don't take my word for any thing google it look it up on YouTube or this site .I am giving you all the bad stuff so your aware that's all.Swift is no different then the rest they all have good and bad about them. Swift you will need 350 to 450 to take with you depending on witch school you want to go to just look at the trucking schools on this site they will tell you all about it. Swift dose give you room and bored but you have to by your own food for 4 to 5 weeks depending on how long it takes to get your mentor.Other companys will give you 200 a week why you are in school some do some don't once again just puting all I know out there.Now would I go to Swift school yes I would. Now the cameras will freak me out a bit and only going 63 on a road with a 75 mph speed limit with cars going around me every second will scare the hell out of me but I would suck it up.I am not a talker I always used my ears to learn good luck man .

I don't know why all these guys are more for swift then helping you out ? Well I do they are swift management !!! Things that are facts about swift there trucks only go 57mph some 63mph .They have installed cameras in there trucks to watch there drivers and they are going to start buying all automatic trucks because they have a problem keeping truck drivers.so if you can't drive stick you will have a much harder time finding a different job. What they are going to say no no no the cameras only come on for 20 seconds if you brake to hard or some thing worst. I will call BS on that! They will say automatics save on gas! Well why didn't they do this four years ago when gas prices where four times as much. THis is also why there trucks are so slow to save on gas. Swift is a good (STARTER) company but there is a reason thay train 200 new drivers a week because most leave. A buddy of mine got a 200 $ ticket from swift for eating chips why he was driving when the camera came on. They said it was a bump in the road that made the camera come on. Long story short he works for raven now.

Well if I was you I would call all of them you never know till you ask! CR England ,knight,crist,USA trucking,jb hunt,Tyson foods,Walmart all have schools and many more.your problem is the ticket you got in august it's so recent. It's not the company's but rather there insurance company's that make the rules. You don't have to go to a school to get your cdl .you can study go to the DMV get your permit then study the pre trip,how to shift gear and rent a truck for your skills test. I have two friends that went this way. One went to http://www.cdltesttruck.com/ to rent his truck two years ago it was 250.00. back then texas did not make you do a pre test but that change and now you have too.

I stand by its better to be safe then sorry! AS I said before I do not know this for a fact!!! They will send you home on your own dime for not passing a drug test that is a fact.Swift as I have seen is the fastest way to become a solo driver most company's want you to be a team driver for a lot longer. You might like that but I would want to be solo as fast as I can. YouTube is the best way to learn the good and bad about a company. Just type in swift transportation there is so many people who have posted there experiment with the school thay went to.As I have Sean most people who started with swift are not with them any more most because of pay but a lot of them say it's a great starter company.

Did you gadulate high school ? If so you can get a 5000 $ pell grant from the government and not have to pay a dime back. You can go to any cdl school you would like. Once you get a cdl a lot of company's will take you and over look your past a lot more.

I dont know this for a fact but I have read many forms. swift recruiting will tell you any thing to get you tru the door. This is the job of a recruiter. They dont care if you quit your job or have to waste 5 days of your life before they send you home. You will have to buy your own bus ticket back as well. If I was you a would call swift management,fax your DMV report and get a for sure on that they will take you.I am not trying to be negative I just don't want you to have a bad experiment like many others have in the pass.

Thanks guys! I been studying for about two mouths now. I wAs asking because I got a old cdl book from the library and it said I had to take a road sign test and get them all right before I can move on. This book was mad in 1979 so it's was old and out dated but I read it any way. This book was not my study book but it made me wandor. Thanks again for your time.

Not a road test yes I know I have to do that later along with the pre trip. I am asking if there is a road sign test before the general knowledge test thanks
