Hey all, seriously, I've got a buddy, who is done with school, waiting to test. He is having a hard time getting a pre hire from anywhere, because of work history. He owned a business, and doesn't have any 1099'S to prove this. What are his options?

Pre Hire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.

Chicon, Old School ran a business before becoming a career trucker. He can probably provide some reasonable suggestions on employment proof. Beyond that, copies of tax returns and incorporation documents might be a good place to start.

That's it - they will want to see tax returns. If he was running under the radar and not professionally, some letters from former customers might help prove his history. The letters will need to be notarized.
