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.

The best way is to Apply For Truck Driving Jobs now. Any company interested in you (there are probably several) will tell you what they are looking for. And some of them will help you get the training you need to get back up to speed.

Good question. Probably not, but the meaning (apply first, hope for the best) still goes.

Most companies have been using online applications for quite awhile now. I've only done two paper applications in 7 years. If they want online, then do it online.
