What happens if you resign after receiving cdl thru a company sponsored training to go to another company before the contract is up?

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Company Sponsored Training:

A Company-Sponsored Training Program is a school that is owned and operated by a trucking company.

The schooling often requires little or no money up front. Instead of paying up-front tuition you will sign an agreement to work for the company for a specified amount of time after graduation, usually around a year, at a slightly lower rate of pay in order to pay for the training.

If you choose to quit working for the company before your year is up, they will normally require you to pay back a prorated amount of money for the schooling. The amount you pay back will be comparable to what you would have paid if you went to an independently owned school.

Company-sponsored training can be an excellent way to get your career underway if you can't afford the tuition up front for private schooling.

You owe the original company whatever your contract with them stipulates for breach of contract.

Why did you sign a contract with Company A? Or are you just not interested in following through on your promises?

I honestly thought I'd like flatbed trucking, but after going thru training I realized it wasn't for me. I had resigned from my job to go thru with the training so I continued on.

Call the company and ask to switch divisions. You didnt say who you were working for, if its Roehl they have dry van , prime has tanker and reefer...

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

The best thing would be to try and stick it through for the duration of your contract. What is it about flatbed that isn't for you? If you leave before that is fulfilled you will owe tuition costs for the schooling (in the contract you signed they should have given you a dollar amount).

That said, you asked if you could quit and still go to any company. Short answer would be yes. A lot of companies only hire people with 6 months or a year OTR experience, but there are plenty others that will take inexperienced drivers and you could probably easily find another job.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

CT is part of Comcar, so you should be able to switch within their network of companies. Roadrage, recently started with , shoot, ummmm, MTC? well, anyways, he is with Comcar, as well. That would be your best bet.
