I live in Lexington, and the closest big city is Winston-Salem, with Greensboro right beside it.

All three of these cities are in North Carolina.

Hay, Seth!

It's been 3 weeks, man! You've not found anything? Have you looked at JBS Carriers, NFI, or USXpress? Oakley MAY even have something for you, hopper/end dumps, but still CMV/combo tractor trailers.

Hope you find something soon; when that license gets stale, you may have to start at the bottom, at age 21; carriers are picky, due to their insurance specifications. Many companies DO have intrastate , until you age up. As I'd mentioned before, have you TRIED?

Again, the link: (And I'd bet 3 will email you!) Apply For Truck Driving Jobs~

You get what you give; I'd have figured with all the above, you'd have been choosing from ten by now, haha!

We are here to help; USE THAT LINK above, and apply..... It specifically ASKS! Look those few I provided up .. as well.

Wish you the best, keep on it!~

Have you thought about being a yard driver? I would think it would give you plenty of backing practice and some "experience " Then you could talk to other drivers face to face, get some insight. Just my 2 cents.

I think that's one of the best ideas posted.
