So my State funding fell through - my State funding fell through -- I'd been hoping to get funded to go to Truckers School but that ain't happening anytime soon - in a way it's good since a lot of personal stuff came up lately. Anyway, soon I am thinking okay 'sponsored training' through a company. After speaking to a few 'sales rep's' at these trucker companies I notice how nice they are and want to say that there place is the best ect ect......... This got me to thinking like an actor or a professional athlete. Wouldn't it be interesting if an agent went through all the schools that train 'on the job' and found a really good one for me. I realize I have to come up with reasons to train at one place verses another but these sales reps seem like they promise you the moon. What's some good advice on choosing a company that trains?

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Check out the reviews here. Paid CDL Training Programs That's what I did and I found the one that best suited my needs. These reviews have been done by Brett and are objective as opposed to what you'll hear from the companies themselves. They are NOT all the same, either in their training or in how long you need to stay with them to reimburse for that training. Good luck!

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.

Great idea and thanks- I always forget that the answer to some if not many of my questions are already sitting here on this website. I meant to say federal and State funding fell through but I'll keep Truckin'

One company that's not on there is XPO. They're worth looking into. All they ask for upfront is you get your permit first. They give you lodging and $ for meals while in school and during orientation. They also pay for the license transfer when you get your CDL.

Sam I'm talking to XPO. I have my CDL-A with HM, tanker, double, triples. I would like to hear about orientation. Also I'm told training isn't team? Sorry, didn't intend to hijack this!
