From Trucking Company Reviews

"Knight Pet Policy - After completing training and logging 30,000 miles. Pets under 50 lbs, no aggressive breeds. $400 deposit required, $200 is refundable."

Sorry... I meant...

"Knight Rider Policy - Knight does allow riders but no specific policy information was given."

From that same review page, further up, it only says:

"Enhanced Rider program"

I would give them a call. This is the company I want to get started with, and I have talked to them. They are extremely patient answering all kinds of questions. Looking at your history, it looks like you already have your CDL - so definitely call them. I've talked to a few companies, and this one sounds like such a great company to start off with - and looks to be pretty darn good to stay with. I'll find out in a few months if they let me come on board...in the meantime, good luck to you.

Also, there's some dude on YouTube who works for Knight. His YT name is: Mr.Sinnizter DaTrucker The recruiter I talked to actually gave me that information. Ha. Again, best of luck, and if you do get on with them, come back and tell us how it is - some of us really want to work for them.

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.

Actually, I just found it but it might be a bit dated because the last page of their review says "no pets" which is no longer true, they do allow pets.

Anyway, rider policy from the review on page 5 of 5 on this site:

"What is the company's rider policy?

After 6 months of safe driving experience, drivers may have approved riders on the truck over the age of 10 years old. "
