Well after over coming the hurdles,I have a date with Sage Truck Driving School. I check in at the Hotel and Convention Center In Billings MT on May 8th and start school on the 9th. Even though I have had a CDL in the past and its been 3 years since I have been in a truck I am required to full fill the 150 hours. There is no more then 5-6 students in a class at a time and its all 1-1 when training outside of class room. I wont be able to go back to my favorite company (May Trucking) because they dont hire out of MT. I am set up with Jim Palmer, Doug Andrus Dist, or Montana Agrilculture when I have completed schooling. So now I will just keep studying the CDL Program here at TT and count the days down.


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.

Did sage help with the cost of the motel? Just curious as I was thinking of them but all of them are so far away from me.

No. I am going through voc-rehab and they cover the school and the hotel. Now I dont know what kind of deal they get on the rooms but I do know there are 2 of them about a block from the school and they range from $55-$89.
