I am a veteran as well as an Army wife (ret). I am a mother, a teacher (almost done!) and a scuba diver. I am looking forward to a huge change and plan to earn my CDL this summer.

Pre-truck driver

Hi, Susan D! One other trucker cautioned against a trucking company CDL program because if they're not accredited and you switch companies, you'll be hard pressed to get a job. On the other hand, if you have earned your CDL and have a clean driving record, does it matter you might not have attended an accredited school?

So many variables!

Thanks for any words of wisdom!

Pre-truck driver

I like the "pre-driver" title of this forum. I'm nearly at the end of the school year (I am an elementary school teacher) and will NOT go back in to the classroom. Too exhausting dealing with parents and their kids.

SO, major career change for me. I decided to go to my local community college to earn my CDL. This was based on a recommendation from a driver on the Truckers Helping Truckers FB page.

Good luck to you all and I look forward to words of advice and more recommendations!

Thanks, Kathy
