I need some advice here ,please thanks

I agree with what the other guys said. I would start by applying for the companies that have their own CDL training. You can find those here:

Company-Sponsored CDL Training Programs

Living in Florida is going to make it much more difficult. Only a small percentage of companies hire drivers out of Florida so your opportunities will be limited.

If you don't have any luck with company-sponsored programs, you can apply for pre-hires at trucking companies and they will tell you what refresher courses you could take from private schools in order to be hired. You can find more information about pre-hires and how they work in this article:

Understanding The Pre-Hire Process

Ok 6/28/ 2013 Friday, I just called US EXPRESS and with my Social security they check my record, I can be RE-HIRED but with 6 months experience, and if other company have a problem with the abandon part (6 years ago ) to tell them to call US EXPRESS, I spoke with a female recluiter, she mention get a job some were else and come back to them ,,,, if somebody is going to give the chance now!I will stay for long time for sure, I know is no good jumping companies plus I loyal to anybody that is willing to help me. I dont mind the refresh or sign again for a company that will give a refresh course or the whole thing, So with all this clear what to do next.I in a friend house but I must move sold my jet ski, I only waitiing to sale bike , and drums tp have cash( around 2,000 )and my 2002 jeep liberty like I said I don't have family or friends ( Only you Guys) so I can relocate, I palm bay fl now thanks again

the abandon Part was 6 years ago

Since you already have your CDL you will not have to take the entire school over. Just a refresher course which will be shorter.

OK with your past concerning when you first started trucking I would recommend a company that has their own school that way if you pass their school they will give you a job afterwards.

But the company you started with is not the only one out there. Apply at them all. And since they said you abandoned training you might have to wait the entire 12 months but maybe not. You will just have to see.
