46 year old body with the wanderlust of a 20 year old

Just scratching the surface and doing the CDL research/testing here...so far so good, hopefully my test scores carry over to the actual test and I fare as well. My concerns are my age, my body always wants to remind me that I'm not 20 anymore; but I do push myself. I currently work for a small company doing deliveries, just a large cargo van and a minimum of 165 times I get in and out of the thing carrying at the very least five pounds in my hand per stop...all in a 7 hour time frame...we are allowed 10 hours, but I don't take breaks and I do the "restroom" stop in the back of the van with my cup. I always wanted to drive otr, but my father used to tease me and say I couldn't even pull the pin. Have I waited to long to start this career? If not, what steps first? Go to the dmv and do the exam? Go to a school? If a school, which one? I can't afford a private one and would like a recommendation for a company sponsored one and what that might entail. Any information would be much appreciated. :)
