Thank you so much for the AMAZING message! Yes it is AMAZING to know I can pass any and all tests. I will look at to starting my own thread. I have know idea how to. Unfortunately the company I currently work for does not sponsor or have a CDL training program. We are aloud to use the trucks to get our CDL-B but not A. That is why I chose a private school. Also they state may pay for my training at the private school that is way cheaper and does not require me signing another contract with a different company then who I work for which currently I don't plan on leaving but will still look at my options. I am going to start a thread to see if three people would not mind me interviewing for my application to the state. Its short and just a couple questions and does not require personal info. Just truck driver name, company name, if the company is currently hiring, if the driver had any formal training, what their current employer is looking for when they decided to fill said position, and what background checks are done for the company the current driver works with. Let me know with if any one would not mind taking some time to speak with me. Please text or call my cell at 717-475-2890.




So I've continued with the straight/box truck company and am now applying to a school in PA. Just waiting to see if I get approved for funding. I just celebrated 10.5 months sober so everything should definitely be out of my system now. I'm so stoked and excited. I'm also nervous and all that to. I'm going to a cheaper school called Shelly. What companies are good to start driving with?




Don’t go until you’re sure you are clean. I know of a few ppl who somehow did some hocus pocus and got a clean test. I know of plenty more who seemed “shocked” that the test found x or y in their system.



Huge congrats on your sobriety ~!!!! That's KUDOS worthy, for sure. Feels GOOD to know you can pass ANY and ALL tests they can throw your way, doesn't it?!?!? That in itself is a pat on the back moment...forever!

Any reason you want to go to a private school, paid partially or not, in lieu of company paid training? (Does your straight/box driving job offer further education, in obtaining your CDL? MANY do. . . )
