Glad you aren't that bad but, here is something you need to consider.. do not train anywhere that does team training. As far as I know, Schneider and CFI do not do team training, they run as a solo truck, and you do all the driving. The truck is parked for a 10-hour break. So set your clock and be up an hour before you need to leave.

You assumed that you would have 45 minutes to an hour at the beginning of the day. And that you are parked somewhere. With team training, there is no way I could park for an hour when you get up. I drive when you are sleeping. And honestly, there are plenty of times my students wake up and we could be 100 miles to a restroom. There are some desolate parts of the country.

So cut CRST, Prime, Swift, Wilson off your list.

Can the others put any companies below that does solo only training?

Good thinking, Kearsey; (See? That's why she makes the big bucks ! J/K, but it helps!)

Here's a couple more for you, Brandon. You should still apply here: Apply For Paid CDL Training.

Witte Bros. is small enough to be more amenable; large enough to matter: Witte Bros./Training

JRayl here in Ohio does a lot of New England: Training with JRayl

One of my faves, look at their training! If you'd enjoy flatbed: Keim TS, Breaker! Breaker! Training School

Another Ohio Home Baser: Mast Trucking (they are NEW on our site, too!) Apply For Paid CDL Training

One of my favorites, very diversified: (Train with, and ) Drive 4 Hogan !

Cypress Truck Lines, located in Florida Norte, another Flatbed Training Company: Cypress Truck Lines Paid Training

Continental Express, ask for Anita; Great gal, great Ohio folks, too: Continental Express, Paid Training

CFI would be a good wager, also; And, hope that helps & keeps you busy for awhile, let us know;

ps: YRC (prior Yellow Freight) has training programs popping up ALL OVER at different times; a link would be area specific; with not knowing even your state, you'll have to Google that one. Good luck!
