How much time did it take to get through company sponsored CDL school?


My plan "A" is to sign on with a company that provides CDL training.

My interest is to work OTR, as a company driver.

I have a few questions.

1/ what company did you sign with?

2/ How much time did it take? The time from the start of cdl school to the time you were given your own truck.

I have been reading this forum and have taken in a great deal of information. I was hoping to glean specific info with this post.

Thank you

Looking for training and need answer for if a fit for lease would work for my wife and me

I am wanting to train and get with a company that would allow my wife and cat to go with me full time. I have been on here before I am 58 in Phoenix Az. I am not a large man 5ft 8 170 but would love to have my wife and pet travel full time with me.

thank you Ron

Ron; I'm right there with you budded. As to the desire to take a rider and a pet. I'm here looking for almost the same answerer's.

For us it's a little dog. Company truck, No lease.

As to living in a small box with just the three of you, I can say this. We have lived full time in our dumpy old 30 foot rv for years as I have worked all over the country. We love it. For us home is where we park it.

We love the travel. Not the places we stay. Living full time on the road is Not like a full time vacation. It's hard, Scary and awesome all at the same time.

I will try to PM you so we can keep in touch. I am hopeful to get on with a company as a company driver.

Thank you Tramp

Practice test, Is this a common problem?


Is this common? After I login to trucking truth and take the CDL test prep. It seems I get logged out by the system. I don't find out until I click finish. Very frustrating.

At that point I go back to the home page and log in again, take the practice test. Some times it will work...and some times it wont?

Is this a common problem?
