Just got the phone call that I begin cdl training on 9-17-2018. So stoked to go to a school with only 6 students max. Been reading these diaries here for months and got a lot of useful info. Now back to studying my brains out for the written test. Ill keep this post updated once I'm on my way to Missouri.

Thanks guys, nervous as hell but so excited. This site has been a great help in all aspects of getting ready. The support from other drivers is exactly what a newbie needs to get him over the hump and this site provides that. Only hard part is telling my 6 year old daughter that daddy is going away for a bit. Its for her why Im doing this though.

Hey Jared, It was great to see you were going to be in the same class at Wil-Trans also, I talked to Ryan today,he said he is your recruiter also, small world,huh! I'm coming in from Warren,Ohio, we're near the Pa. line, about 60 miles southeast of Cleveland. I'm not looking forward to that bus trip either, but I am looking forward to being there and starting this new, exciting career! I'll see you there soon!

Wil-Trans:

Darrel Wilson bought his first tractor in 1980 at age 20, but, being too young to meet OTR age requirements, he leased the truck out and hired a driver.

Through growth and acquisition, Wil-Trans now employs over 200 drivers, and has a long-standing partnership with Prime, Inc. to haul their refrigerated freight. The family of businesses also includes Jim Palmer Trucking and O & S Trucking.
