Getting your CDL-A without school

Wow I think I guys are really taking me wrong, here. I dont want my husband struggling to get his CDL by having to go to more than one school and end up with nothing to show for it because he is slightly slower than most people. I want a good school, will help him pay but pay only ONCE. Not get beat to death by a company and trashed talked only to owe his soul when hes done. Come on! All of you know what I am talking about! Let's not forget, I love this dude! Would U wish that on someone you love?! I started with the infamous CR England. Didnt graduate, it was not good for me. At .17 cpm to pay them back when I was done was no incentive! Prime was great, just too fast paced for him! Thanks anyway.

I just love it when a neophyte try’s to tell us about how bad all of of our employers are...

That sh** don’t fly here Candice.

Getting your CDL-A without school

Wow! Thanks you guys for the wealth of info! It's all given me so many other things to address! I was actually asking the company from a standpoint of him attending school, and then him being trained by me, in the same company afterwards. After my husband and I talked about it more in depth we just assumed the company would let us skip the school and let me train him. Bummers that it may not be an option to do it that way. I called a few of the mega carriers to see if they would let him come to their school and the were all about it, and letting me come over and train him, they all are just such bad companies! I can't stand the thought of him having to stay with them until that bill is paid. Ugh!! Do u guys recommend any schools? Heard anything good? I actually got mine from Prime but I feel they will be too fast paced for him. He already has his learners. He has had that about 3 weeks now. Also...thanks for welcoming me! :)

Getting your CDL-A without school

Hello everyone! My name is Candice and I have been driving for 3 years now. My husband is with me as a passenger and he wants his CDL but is hesitant because he has a learning disability. I went to 2 schools before I achieved my goal as a driver, the first school was bogus and I didnt spent but 15 min 1 time in a truck. In othet words, I didnt get what I needed. 6,000 dollars later, I got my CDL. I have no tickets, no accidents and I work for a great company who will let me train my hubby. He has driven farm equipment his whole life and I think he would be a great truck driver. II have seen the educational material on this website for getting ur cdl without school. I am wondering what states require hours or instruction behind the wheel in a classroom setting? There has to be some states that require that, right? I mean, the owner of Tenessee truck driving school just got in trouble for the other school he owned loosing paperwork on drivers. Some of those drivers, according to the news, lost their cdl because that paperwork was gone. I know I can teach him what he needs to know without a 6,000 dollar debt. Do u guys and gals know anything about the states that require that?
