Hello šŸ‘‹šŸ¾ everyone. Iā€™m very new to the trucking business. Trying to get my CDL. I have been researching companies what seem like forever and not making any progress. I would like to get some ideas on good starter companies to get my CDL through. I have been leaning more towards Stevens transport. Anything will be great! Thank you

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.

Don't start at Stevens is my suggestion. Too many other companies that train and pay better out here.

I would suggest Millis Transfer depending on your location. Continental Express trains in Indianapolis. Of course look at the links here on TT. RE West outside of Nashville is a smaller co. that trains.
