You will need to talk to your embassy over here and see what is required cause unless you have a normal drivers license for a year federal regulations will prevent you from getting a cdl over here. Frankly 89 your having trouble getting a visa on your own then I doubt a company will look to hard at you since you already have one failed attempt with acquiring a visa.

The thing is coming over here you have no viable way to support yourself other than a self proclaimed internet business. Hate to say this about American citizens but we have more than enough of our own excuse making people leeching money off the government.

I am afraid my friend that the road you are wishing to travel maybe harder than you think.

But to answer your question. ....lookup new York and new Jersey based trucking companies on the internet and email them. Maybe they can point you in the right direction.

i am legal i have my green card and i pay my taxes smile.gif why i should ask my embassy ? my license in my country is expired a ready what i understand from you it"s if i have less then one year on my regular US driver license i can't do CDL

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.

That about sums it up. I said ask the embassy cause I have no idea about the laws governing CDL'S and people from other countries that want to work here. It's not something that we deal with on a day to day basis.
