Moving CDL to a new state!

I would not think where your CDL is from would matter to any carrier. So do not mess with trying to "fool" the DOT or your new employer. If they are not hiring from a certain area that mostly means they will not get you "home " there very easily as there is no manufacturing opportunities for them to get loads in and out. Florida is an area that has that problem as it is easy to find loads going there most times but very hard finding loads back out as the economy is more consumer than manufacturing driven.

I’ve spoken to both Maverick and a TMC and they have both told me that I have to transfer my CDL in order to be hired by them. I’m not super concerned with “home” as I plan on taking my home time and traveling around. I’m single and child-free so I have nothing tying me to “home.” I’ll also be foregoing an apartment or anything like that and just living on the truck so I won’t even have a physical address.

When did Prime say they werent taking from washington? Is that due to covid and temporary? Cause I haven't been told.

One thing to understand is hometime. If a company doesnt hire from an area.... You arent getting home there.

Thinking back, it was that Prime wouldn’t take me for their paid CDL program, I had to get my CDL then call them back if I remember correctly.

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

I’m a beauty school dropout!

Serious answer, I’ve worked front-desk type jobs my whole life, struggling to make ends meet the entire time. Tried the college thing, I couldn’t pick a major and years of studying plus compounding student loans made it so not worth it for me. So, I worked, I traveled the world a little bit, spent a couple summers in Italy as an au pair, worked some more, and started to lean into some of my passions, cosmetology being one of them. I enrolled in school and not a week later, COVID hit. My job description changed from “hairdresser” to “front-line worker” and “self-sacrificer” overnight, and that was NOT what I wanted to do. Not for minimum wage at least. Plus, the public response that they “needed” their haircuts and highlights..... people are dying, Karen.

So, I did some more soul searching, and came across trucking by chance! Then I discovered this website, hours of research turned into weeks into months and well, my first day of training starts any minute now!

Moving CDL to a new state!

Hello everyone!

Brand new here... my CDL training starts today.. yay!

However, being from Washington State, I’ve found that most of the companies I really want to work for don’t hire from my state! So, to get around this, I’ve got some friends in Nashville who are willing to let me “live” with them on paper to get TN residency, which opens up a LOT more potential doors for me. (Helloooo Maverick! Prime! Roehl! Basically every company!)

My question today for you all is how would I go about transferring my CDL to a new state? Is it as simple as walking into the DMV or do I need to go through medical and re-testing?

Apologies if this has already been asked and answered!
