Hey, Nancy! Did your get your CDL yet? Or are you simply riding along?

I checked Trucker Path, it seems TP "works" in the Dominion of Canada just as well. But 😣 I didn't see any WM listings.

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.

Hi Errol, No CDL , I'm home. Being patient, studing the guide, and awaiting news from 1 application. I really want this one company to accept me. If not, I'll move on. Relayed the info to the husband, one review said get a canada petro card if you want to take a shower. That's interesting. And being in the passenger seat is not that simple. Especially after, "DAMN, I PASSED THE ENTRANCE!". I sure do miss it.

Trucking Truth is not really the place for secrets like this. (Someone may be able to give specific advice!) Unless you're worried about getting a jinx, can you let on what company you applied to?

Wil-trans. Its perfect, right up my alley. Feels right. And just for saying that, ya, its gonna screw up. Sad to give up on swift. Im very disappointed in them for their stupidity. Ok now, calm down. How come ur not driving? Or is that a big secret?

I hope Wil-Trans comes through for you.
