Test on Wednesday

6 weeks later vigorous training and I feel like I’m ready, any advice. More worried about the road test than anything else. Back skills and pre trip I got down. Indiana is a PAIN compared to Illinois

Old questions young guy

@bigscott My biggest problem (and my wife’s) with OTR, my wife has two kids of her own, and being away from them she won’t be able to handle it. Me and my wife are very very close knit. I considered OTR and stuff but she was not going for it, and it started putting doubt in my head. We’ve only been married a few months don’t want to lose that she’s a keeper haha. Also I am looking for a career, this is where I plan to plant my feet in the ground. A CDL will open hundreds of doors for me, and it’s not even just that part.. My dad was a trucker for 30+ years, this is in my blood.. Also they offered me the job! They want me to drug test tomorrow, thank you all for the help and guidance time to hit the grindstone!!

Xpo Questions

Man! Thank you guys so much for the feedback and support. I went to the interview and got offered the position! Told me to take my DT tomorrow. I think I’m going to go for it, I’ve been reading into the forums for the past month or so now and have read a ton of articles. I’m still trying to grasp the difficulty of local driving, but I won’t see it till I do it. I appreciate everyone’s opinion and it helped out a lot with my decision. Again thanks guys I will read into all this information you guys have given me and thanks for help out the young guy most people give the young guy the cold shoulder!

Xpo Questions

LTL typically means local right? I’m interested because my wife doesn’t want me to go OTR and xpo has a student driver program that’s LTL. Im 21 and own a house, i have an interview tomorrow with them and I’m just curious to find out if this is legitimate

Old questions young guy

What’s up everyone, I’m Brett. Few question for you all.. I’m 21 and my wife is 33 she has two kids. I’m seriously considering getting into trucking simply for the money and the joy of being a driver. Two big issues and two big questions. My wife will not be okay with me OTR. And she doesn’t want me to go away for 8 weeks to get my cdl.

so I did my research and I found XPO LTL student driver within range of me. I got an interview tomorrow. Question 1; is this really local.. she want me home nightly. Bare minimum.. i read all this things about 1 yr exp for local and all that Jazz. True? Or not true?

Question 2; is it worth it to get into this right now
