I'm currently enduring my own struggles and chipping away at the wall. Any advice from vets who have been there would be greatly appreciated.

This is the place for answering your questions. First, use the 3-bar menu at the top left to find all kinds of resources. Second, look in the Trucking Wiki (it's in that menu). Third, use the search box, top left of this page. Put in the term you want, and all the posts are there for you.

Finally, just post your question in the forum. It's all here, Banks.

Thanks Errol. I posted my question last night in the forums. It's"explaining trucking to your spouse".

Yes I am still here. While I was mock testing the instructor got a phone call that I needed to go to the college immediately. Instead of going I called. She changed the meetin to 8 am this morning. 5 minutes from now. They wouldnt tell me what it is about. All I know is everything that has happened here has made me more determined than ever to pass my test on Tuesday. It is going to be one and done. I drove the route for the driving test this morning and the right turn that everyone is failing is easy peasy. I got this.

Well doesnt look like I am testing on Tuesday. With everything going on they are making me take another drug test. I dont have an issue doing it just a pain. My meds always give me a false positive. So then I have to get another script from the Dr. to prove I am on the meds. They wont even get the test back until Monday then I get to jump through hoops getting the paperwork they want. I am so fed up with this school. I have the knowledge and access to a cmv. I should just go on my own and it.

Jenn has a bad idea:

I have the knowledge and access to a cmv. I should just go on my own and it.

Do not take that path. Without a verifiable 160 hour training certificate from a truck driving school you will have an extremely difficult time getting a job.

Agree with G-town. They're playing with you a little. Play their game, take the test and get your license. Then go make a living. Best of luck to you!

Keep your head in it. Don’t let them shake you. Jump through their hopes and smile on the way out with your CDL. G-Town is right. That accredited school CDL will help you open many more doors.

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.

There's no way that will happen.
