Wanting to start my trucking career.. but wanting to talk to someone where and how to get started

Thanks to all of you for your really good input! I learn something new and helpful with each of your comments I read! Splitter you sure did have some challenges but good job for overcoming! After reading about your back up experiences makes me think I better practice backing with my car more for practice! I want to do this I really do... there is lots of stuff to be done and to learn.. I am feeling overwhelmed and I haven't even began my journey of it all yet! I need to breathe lol

Thanks again!

Thanks Old School and Rainy for the great info. to my questions! It is all very helpful to me!

So I do not know how to drive a manual At All. When you do your CDL training with companies do they teach you how to drive the manual in the rig or do they expect you to have some experience with a manual? I have none what so ever unfortunately. 😞

If they do teach it to you, I hope that they would be lil patient with me grinding the gears. ☺Im sure I will grind it plenty. Lol

One of my first questions I have is will I get paid (like weekly income from a job) during my training for my new trucking career? Or do most people do their truck driving training at night?

Thanks in advance for everyone's input!

Bran009 or anyone else know of any truckers chat online where "newbies" like myself can chat with or ask questions with other new or experienced truck drivers?
