Rookie Solo Driver
64 year old who originally earned CDL through Midland College after retirement from the State of Texas TDCJ. Tried out Con - Way and did not finish mentor training. Then tried out Averitt Express and completed mentor time. However I could not make it through the adjustment time and quit during my first month solo. I got scared of the backing situations. I lost sight that I DID do all my backing successfully. I then returned to TDCJ for about 3 years and finally really retired on 4/14/17. During this time I let my CDL lapse.
Ps. Both Con - way and Averitt were to me excellent choices.
6/9/17 I completed my CDL Training and received my CDL at Corsicana Swift Training Academy. Reporting for Orientation at Swift Lancaster (Dallas, TX) on 6/14/17. Will go on the road with a Mentor for 200 hrs., immediately after Orientation for completion of training and then officially be a . . . "ROOKIE Driver".>
