Driver shortage

I am an unemployed former felon. I read the stories about the truckers shortage every day. I'm 52, mature, and looking to have a little for later. I have tried every school to get admitted. Strike 35 your out. I just want to ask any of you guys if any of you know how to find a school or company sponsored cdl training that won't tell me to get lost. I already am. My felonies are from 2011, and 2005. I'm not a person who will give up easily. But I'm thinking that maybe the restrictions are just the only reason to give it up. I don't think I'm the only person who has got in trouble after making a poor choice. I feel like there is something I could do. Like I said I'm not a quitter. Could one of you if you have been through this, give me advice.

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
