I have been driving now for 6 months. I have applied to a company that needs me to verify that I have driven 50,000 miles. With all of the new things I have been taught with CDL school and then on the job, I have not kept track of my miles. Does my company have a record of how many miles I have driven for them that I can use as verification for my new company?


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.

Q #1: You are changing jobs after six months? We don't recommend that. A work history including job hopping doesn't look too good.

As for you're documented miles, add up the ones listed on your paycheck. If you are paid CPM , you'll have your total.


Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

Do your pay stubs show miles?

If you stick with that job for another six months, which I highly recommend, you'll definitely have more than enough miles to satisfy your future employer. That job isn't going to disappear. They will still be looking for a driver when you are better prepared in six more months.

Job hopping is a very bad idea! Is this company willing to pay you a sign on bonus of $10,000 or more? 6 months on the road is not enough time to show your stuff. Not to mention a disrespect to your present company who already took a chance on you 6 months ago. It also shows that you will not just jump from job to job because you think the grass is greener!

Remember this is a fast paced trucking world. You never want to burn any bridges as you turn those wheels.
