Mistake

It was my approach to it last time. Know that I am living with my now husband I feel better. Before I was homesick when I got on the grey dog. But having a laptop and being able to facetime and call I know I won't hit the cycle again. I am looking at company sponsored just because I don't have the money to put up for school at this time.

Mistake

Hi All, It has been awhile since I have been here and even posted. I had my CDL from a private school in which was paid for by a grant from the state. I attempted to go on the road a couple of times, only to come back home because things didn't feel right. I gave my CDL up in October 2016, and now feel that I want to go back and do this. Is my best approach to try and go to a Company Sponsored Training? I did get a misdemeanor traffic ticket for something out of my control, in which i paid a fine, and I hope this won't hinder me. Please give me any and all advice you can.

Thanks James

I have my official date to start with Centeral/Swift. I go to Lewiston on Dec. 30 for orientation and then with a mentor. Anyone know what their road test is like?

It is always hard on moms if there kids are young and leave home. Most moms have the perceptive that truck driving isn't what you should be doing. But hey your an adult, its your choice good-luck.gifgood-luck.gif

Thanks for the input Ricky and Brett. I am looking forward to actually going through with it this time. My moms brother in law drives regional day cab for Winco Foods, and was telling me it would be best to get out now as you are able to get training on the winter roads. So freight might get slow, but hopefully not enough to where you sit for a week without making miles. I will be going into Central so it might not be a problem

Which CDL manual do I study if I'm going to Prime

I say U just need to do trucking truth training. It's the CDL manual in a better format. Everything ur going to see on a test is covered in the TT High Road program.

So I have had a few people tell me that now is not the time to go on the road for training? Isn't now the best time that way you have expirence with winter roads? I'm going to central/swift and my recruiter time me that U send your drop macro and then u pretty much have ur next load right away. Any swift/central guys wanna assure me of that? My one friend is concerned that there is no freight to move in winter months. Let me know what ur opinions are

*scratches head* I thought trucks came with those already?

Nope. Have to provide your own.

Is the wiring at least there, or do you have to take it to a company terminal and have it installed?
