The schools who do the serious background checking are the Company-Sponsored Training Programs.
Being accepted at a company school means you are all but hired.
A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:
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.
Ive just read on here and other sites that some people think there good to go. Then come first or second day after arriving that they were sent home, for background or job verification.

Simple question here, which company's that provide schooling actually look and investigate into background, driving record, and work history before sending you a bus ticket to come to their school? I ask because I don't want to be sent home, I'm going to be honest about everything on apps but don't want recruiter to say come on then get sent home a day after being there. Prime, swift, western express, raider express, and Stevens are the companies I have started contacting.
