Just wanted to let anyone who is thinking about starting CDL school local or company to think about joining Jim Palmer or Wil Trans.. I am with Jim Palmer just about done with training.. They are top notch no need to spend money on private schooling.. They are patient and provide top notch training.. Everyone I have met likes driving for them.. Great equipment to drive also everyone at the terminal in Missoula Mt are friendly professional and want to see you succeed.. Great company to start your career off with!!


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.


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.

Glad to hear you like Jim Palmer. I grew up in Missoula and plan on attending JP, when I am done with my military commitment.

So you are about to head back and upgrade, have you tested yet ?

Safe travels Chris
