TMC CDL training

Tim,

See the link below to the Tennessee CDL page, which has information regarding obtaining your permit.

The High Road Training Program on this website is actually a better study tool than just reading the CDL manual.

Ok thanks, I’ll check The HRTP out, I’ve been using the DMV Genie on my laptop per a suggestion in one of the diaries...

I may be off the mark but I think it depends what state you live in to determine if cdl will pay for your training. I know they do for ky, Ohio, etc. but not here in Alabama, or Ga. Their site goes into specifics.

Tim,

See the link below to TMC's summary of their training process:

TMC Training Process

Thanks for the link, I’d read it before, it does say “Iowa” CDL... As PapaPig stated, it’s different state to state... Nonetheless looks like my part, for now is to get a Tennessee CDL permit... Still waiting on a offer post background from TMC, can’t see anything that would red flag my background, been on my current job 15 years, clean DMV, no convictions!

Welcome, Tim. You take a written test to obtain a permit. Unless something has recently changed, TMC trains you to get your CDL. Are you sure that Dawn didn't say you need a CDL learner's permit?

She didn’t specifically say the “learners permit”, I guess that’s what has me a little confused, I know what that is, just the written part passed... I’ve been study the written the past couple days, feel confident I’ll pass it and the DOT physical without much problem...

Newby here, first post! Signed up on the forum and immediately received several offers for paid training, with TMC being the one I’m most interested in... I talked to Dawn Busick, assuming based on the info they received from the board they new I don’t possess a CDL... In reading post/diaries otb I noticed no mention of taking the written test... Talked with Dawn again and discovered I would need the CDL before entering the training program... I guess I should’ve asked more questions, now I’m unsure if they get me through the driving portion of obtaining my CDL or if they’re specifically just training me to operate their flatbeds... I’m working on getting my ducks in a row to take the written here in Tennessee, hoping that’s all I’ll need to get started training in their program...
