58 to old?

Hey David, I am 57 got my CDL-A last year didn’t begin driving at that time? I am preparing to enter the industry within the next month as I am leaving my primary career for a new career in trucking. I’d be interested in what type of driving you are going to get into. Looks like I am going into Tanker/Hazmat right out of the box? I think our age is actually a plus for us because we have a lot of life experiences behind us to draw from (at least that’s what I’ve been told anyways)? Good luck to you and others that are in this same boat as over 55-ers!

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
