Thank you again. Yes, I’ll need a training company. If I could find one near me I’m Ohio, that would be great. If not, I have no issue at all with traveling to one. Most seem to be in Wisconsin or Iowa, lol.

Millis Transfer has a school in Trenton, Ohio. Southwestern part of state.

Just w as noted to update. I as plied to western express. The recruiter called me this morning and he told me that my 26 over they limit speeding ticket would absolutely not be a problem not since it’s been a year. However, their training is different in that I would need to get my CDL first. I’d go to some school to get my license on my own, and western will hire me, get me trained, and reimburse me the cost of schooling up to $6,000...

Not sure how I feel about that, s as that will or me without any income for however long school takes.

On the other hand, I’m also working with millis. We will see how that goes.

Just keep plugging away at the Paid CDL Training Programs. Somebody is going to give you a chance. You just happened to start with the most particular one. Don't let a few rejections take the wind out of your sails. I had enough companies reject me that I could write a book about it. That minor difficulty never deterred me.

Good luck with Millis. I went through the Trenton school. Got my CDL but did not go solo with them, nothing they did, all me.

Personally I think they have one of the best programs out there. After the 3.5 weeks un paid at school you will make serious money once you are out with a trainer. You get paid starting driver milage pay for all miles the truck turns, even when the trainer is driving.

If Millis will take you, that's HUGE. Didn't realize Western wasn't training in their Nashville facility; could be they are still recovering from the hurricane.

Seems we have another one wanting to wreack havoc as it is.....sure can't finish yard work with these intermittent storms here, in Ohio..I'm south of Mansfield.

Let us know how it goes; how ARE the triplets, btw ?!?!? ;)

I’m hopeful. Being relatively close during training would be nice, the recruiter has my info and told me Friday once she gets my criminal background, she will see what she can do. Criminal is mostly clean. One misdemeanor about 20 years ago. As for the triplets, they’re great. Arm pumping ever semi we pass, and enjoying the summer, as weird as the summer is.
