I have made several attempts to contact Knight about their school and have left messages, but still no reply. This sounds like an ideal situation for me because they pay a minimal amount during CDL School. Is there an easier way to contact them or is this the norm for them. This company sounds like a perfect fit for me, if I could ever contact them to get the ball rolling!

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.

I had the same problem when I was calling around for schools. No one would answer the phone.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Knight has three schools, but I dont think they belong to them personally. The states do not let you go to them unless you live there. They told me that they would be happy to hire my if I can get my CDL first. I think but aint sure it was phoenix, texas, and cali. But like I said I aint sure.

Thanks Guy, I finally did talk with someone and he said they do not have a school, they do have a training program but you have to have your CDL License first. So I talked with my recuiter at Central this morning and I am just going to go with them. Should be heading to Georgia, then Salt Lake City in about a month! Can I say nervous and excited all at the same time!
