Starting school on Monday. Pretty excited. I quit my full time job, got a part time job, and am ready for this! I'm going to Interstate Truck Driving School in South Saint Paul, Minnesota. I've only heard good things about this place. Has anyone here been to it?

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

I passed all of my permit tests. Apparently there's a new rule that you need a birth certificate or a passport to get your permit? I applied to get my birth certificate from Arkansas on the internet on Friday night. Does anyone know how long it takes to get these? I thought I had it but apparently I do not.

I believe it varies and I am currently going through the same thing except I need mine for fingerprinting. I went to a office and applied and they told me 3-5 days. I believe online may be 7-10. But again that is for PA so unsure if it is different for you.

Thanks for the info. I live in Minnesota but was born in Arkansas, my dad was military. The website said 3 to 5 days to get it there and then probably 7 to 10 to ship it. Hopefully it is a smooth deal and it just shows up next week sometime. It cost me $33, so that sucks. Gotta spend money to make money I guess.

I know here there is 2 locations you can go and get it the same day. I would assume other states would offer something similar if you need it fast.

For me 3-5 days is the total length until I should have it. Cost me like 20 here.
