I have been looking around the internet and asking around for months now trying to find the best place with paid training. I've be given very mixed reviews and not much help until I found this place. I have talked to a few companies. I have had a couple of them speak to me as if I won't even be able to pick up 50 lb tarps..... Looking for words of wisdom from working women. THANKS 😊😊😊

Hi and welcome.

Dont bother with reviews cause the bad ones are usually by people who couldnt hack trucking in general, or went lease right out of training and lost money cause they didnt understand the fueling taxes or freight lanes.

Also, i have written a dozen articles about women in trucking, training and life on the road.

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.

Hey Rebecca, Im a new solo driver and i had the same thought. I decided on averitt because of the additional training and the training pay. They started me off at 800 a week. So far im on my last week of training and they are above and beyond what i expected. I love this company. But also it depends where u are. I went to school with a bunch of people and i hear their horror storied or their stories of good times.. it just varies. Do ur home work and decide from there. Im happy with my place and i get along great with my employers.. so best of luck.. if u have any questions about averitt im always around😊
