I passed the test and now I am a fellow trucker ( I think that qualifies me as a fellow trucker), I so can't wait to start this new career! I am so excited that I have even had my voice go chapped a little lol! Hallelujah! So my becoming a good friend and recruiter has started the process of job placement! I have applications that I am filling out for TMC my top pick and Maverick and I am going to probably apply to Melton and now that I know that swift has a flatbed division and I know Prime is they will probably be on the list too! I can tell you what, I know there will be struggles and tough times ahead for my first year but I am so excited to get started! I can't wait to see the country and actually see places I have so ever wanted to see!

I am hoping to have my permanent license here on Tuesday or Thursday. I know that it was not just me sitting in that truck that the Lord definitely helped me in every move! YEEEEEAAAAHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I am finally a trucker WOW!!!!!

Congrats man, glad you didn't give up. That's a helpful trait when you start out flatbed. Now you have to get through training. Enjoy your success but stay focused, getting through training is the next big step. I'm here to help and I'm sure other flatbed guys will be as well. Keep us posted.

That would be great if you went with Maverick of course but you can't go wrong with any of the companies you mentioned.
