Paid CDL training for people living in California?

Prime is currently not accepting from CA, FL and GA. They may open spots in the future.

Thanks for the Info. Do they have a wait-list for people in these states or do I just need to touch base with them every week/month or so?

P.S. I want your cat! :)

Paid CDL training for people living in California?

Hi guys and gals,

Thanks for the great site. I've searched the forums but did not find anything conclusive. I'm currently residing in northern California and am seriously considering getting my CDL. I've applied to Prime and Veriha. Prime declined my application without any feedback. Only after I contacted the recruiter did he say they were not hiring in CA. Veriha also replied with the same. Looking through some of the CDL diaries I see that several people from California trained with Veriha and Prime. Does this mean that they have (in)frequent openings for new drivers?

Are there any paid CDL companies that currently hire from CA? On a related note, I really have no roots here. I've spent the last seven years working overseas and am only in CA as that's where my family is. So I'm relatively mobile. Has any OTR trucker use AirBNB in various cities to spend their downtime? I was thinking this could be an inexpensive way to work for a few years instead of paying for an apartment that I won't see too often.

Thanks for the feedback!

Jim
