Best of luck to you. You have a high chance of having some female students starting with you. The Crowder classes all seem to get pretty close to each other. I think because that's the main school CFI uses and everyone there meets in Joplin and stay together until they all go out with their trainers.

Remember CDL school is like boot camp, it goes quickly. This is not to scare you, but encourage you. So many have come before you and are now successful truck drivers.

We are here to help.

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.

BTW.... don't get hung up on the "female trucker good/ guys bad" concept some women put out.

Women have a HUGE advantage over men out here OTR. Men are more likely to help a woman, customers are nicer, and there are a lot more women out here than people realize, so it isnt rare. The mechanics don't talk down to you, trucking companies are afraid of appearing sexist, and most men have tremendous respect for women who can do thsi job better than them.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Rainy, I agree with your statement that male drivers should have great respect for female drivers. And if a male driver disrespects a female driver, then he's a pathetic loser. I know how driving taxed my strength and if a woman is out there doing all that physical work, my hat is off to her.
