I was in the same boat a couple months ago.

I wish you the best because I found none and settled on a school. Everyone wants you to come to them.

Hi, l financed at Smith and Solomon at the Linden, NJ campus. I re-tested 4 times without extra pay. Financing is another option.

Where are you willing to go? There are a few good schools in upstate NY, and I think that there might be a Sage Trucking school or something similar nearby. Also you could try looking into college campuses that offer a CDL course. They might except pell grant and other financial aid be more flexible in the learning curve, and possibly offer housing and/or meals.

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.

Sage has a good reputation and has numerous schools in your area of focus.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices
