I have now upgraded to first seat driver the adventure begins !

It's been a whirl wind 7 weeks. Two weeks on the road with my mentor has been great but I wish I had more time. At least I had a good mentor. I feel for the ones that are in it for the money. Mine really cared about what he does he showed me a lot. Even took a day to practice backing which is so important. I wish my shifting was better. My two weeks on the road was interesting. Saw a lot. Had a trucker almost take me out! My mentor said I handled it like a pro. It seems like a whole lot of hurry up and wait. 7 hours at a ford plant, 8 hours at kingsford, 8 hours in port author. Don't get me started on the Panama city run or the Laredo run. It has been the most challenging thing I have ever done and the most fun thing. I hope the newness doesn't ever wear off. Can't wait to see what is around the next bend !

Passed all of my CDL written exams in one. Studying the High Road Online CDL Training Program really paid off. Thank y'all for a great site the questions on the test in Texas were a little bit different than the high road training program but it is a great foundation. I recommend it highly. I passed in large part due to it I've got 13 days left that I can devote to learning to driving the course is only 15 days I'll keep y'all posted .

Started applying to different company paid schools

Should not be an issue at all. They may ask for some type of verification in the form of tax papers or even notarized statements from friends that can vouch for the fact you were working for yourself.

Woody

No tax papers it was custom work for cash and art shows the main reason I was doing that is I was tacking care of my father in law did the home health and hospice I could take care of him and stay busy been thinking about driving for awhile and doing research and can't wait to get started
