I have not had a job in 10+ yrs so how do I handle that with the schools? I have clean criminal history and driving records. Any suggestions?

What have you been doing for 10 years?

How have you been supporting yourself?

Can you DOCUMENT IT - like as in letters/affidavits? Tax returns?

As long as you can prove you haven't been in an Al Qaeda training camp - you should probably be OK.

The KEY IS TO BE ABLE TO PROVE IT.

If you've been a married/housewife/mother - letter from your spouse/kids/etc.

So now I'm REALLY CURIOUS - what HAVE you been doing?

Yes I can document my income. If i told you what I've been doing the last 10+ yrs you might not believe me. I've told nobody of this since they won't be supportive. This is more challenging for me than most I have more issues to deal with than most.

In nearly 8 years on this board - we've pretty much seen anything and everything.

Stripper? Porn Star? This is kind of anonymous here. Hard to give advice without particulars.

Eh... I was a phone sex operator and was considered "free lance" so I had 1099s.

And you don't HAVE to have had a job. My sis is 56 and raised three boys and now cares for her grandkids. More men should support a woman's choice to stay home for the family.

Once I make enough money to get out of debt, I'm saving up for a houseboat, and $ to advertise my books. Then I'm enjoying Aruba as I write. I'll be bigger than James Patterson one day and youz guys can say "hey... I used to abuse her when she was a trucker!"

Hahhaha

Was hoping for Porn Star myself.

We're plenty supportive here. Will your disability prevent you from passing a DOT physical? Are you on meds (psyche, pain, etc.) that you may have to get off or change, before you go to orientation?

We've saved a few people wasted round trips, by helping them find out things that will get them sent home to fox - before they get sent home to fix them.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Eww...Not looking to see a porn star that is padding income with trucking. Really can't see Siri doing that.

We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
