So, I'm really new to the business of truck driving, and a several incidents that are now keeping me from finding work. None of these were reportable to the DOT. I know I messed up and I own that statement. I am willing to do more training, and even stay out with a trainer for a longer period of time. I just need someone to give a chance. I know that is asking A LOT, but you should know that I am responsible, hardworking, and just want to work. If you have any suggestions I would be appreciative. I've tried everybody...……..please HELP

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Yes, Jamie is right. We need 100% of the facts before we can offer assistance or advice on what to do or where to go. 😀

It means everybody! Every company to ever exist in the history of trucking. rofl-3.gif

I assume he's referring to the companies people normally make fun of and that are known as second chance companies to most. Now I'm only assuming! Not putting words in his mouth.

Pssst Jamie. I think he is a she - Beth B.

Beth B. I agree with everyone else here that we need the details. If we don't know what you're up against how can we possibly help. Everyone here has probably made some kind of mistake in their life, some worse than others, but at the time it probably felt like the sky was falling. As for me, I'll try very hard not to judge.

Typical list of the end of the road. C.R. England, Carolina Cargo & Western Express. Try one of those 3. If one of those won't give you a chance you may be SOL

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
