I am scheduled to start orientation on the 12th for a dedicated route and will be trying for the doubles endorsement which is required for the job($8.5 for doubles test)...In TN will they require me to pay for my address change on license for a CDL , it doesn't match where I currently live? I read the TN website as I don't have to pay the $16 to change the license just report my address change for free for their database, not much money but just don't have it right now....

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.

Dedicated Route:

A driver or carrier who transports cargo between regular, prescribed routes. Normally it means a driver will be dedicated to working for one particular customer like Walmart or Home Depot and they will only haul freight for that customer. You'll often hear drivers say something like, "I'm on the Walmart dedicated account."

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

If you truly needed the $16, and have a paypal address or some other way for me to get it to you, I'll hook you up.

I just think it would suck for someone to not make it in this business because he was short $16, and it won't kill me to help him out.
