It's been a really long time since I have posted anything on here but I have continued to read posts. I just wanted to update everyone with me. For the past several years I have thought about driving and at the end of June this year I decided to do it and started training at the KLLM academy in Jackson, MS. I completed their 3 week course and obtained by Class A CDL and have completed 4 weeks of my OTR training. I am on home time now and only have one week left til I upgrade to my own truck. This has been a great experience and I have driven in situations and places I could only imagine. Although the time away from the wife and kids is hard, it will be worth it to provide them a great life. (and driving is so much fun). Anyways, that's all I really have for now. I hope to be more active in the future. Until next time, stay safe everyone!
Commercial Driver's License (CDL)
A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:
Over The Road
OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
