I am a 57 yr old female with a class B and am ready for a driving job, doesn't matter the long hours, do care about Health Insurance. I am seeing some Ready Mix driver jobs needing drivers around my home state. I don't have any experience, but I am a fast learner, not afraid of driving a big truck. I want to land this job that wants experience drivers but also said they will train. I have had to self teach myself online to get my class b and it took me less than a month and received my class b with air-brake and passenger endorsement. I have my medical card that is still valid. What can I say to this company to give me a shot?? I have driven a dump truck for about a month, but that was about a decade ago. I drove for UPS as a package car driver for over 10 yrs that required airbrake and medical card (DOT) I owned a 40 ft bus and drove it for my business for 3 yrs. I have driven a 27ft straight truck from Omaha Ne to Elpaso Tx and pick up a load of outdoor items and drive the load back too

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.

If you're sending resumes I suggest you write a cover letter with an appropriate rewrite of what you've written here. It shows passion.

For Ready mix trucks you may need to get a Tanker /N endorsement from what I've come across quite a few companies require it for those type of trucks.

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Go back to being a UPS PCD for another 10 years.
