I finally picked a school and will be starting my training on Monday. So excited. Just a warning to everyone to stay clear of the Riverside area for the next 3 weeks. Thanks TruckingTruth and everyone for all of your GREAT advice!!!!

Enthusiasm is the most important thing to have when going through cdl training. As long as you are willing to do whatever it takes to make it through all the challenges then you will get your cdl.

Thank you Brett for creating this site. It has helped a lot in my decision making and the pretests were very helpful. I am so excited; I have wanted to do this since I was about 15 years old. I finally have the chance and I’m taking it! My Ex-boyfriend is a Trucker and took me on a trip with him several times but one in particular stands out and I couldn’t wait to get my CDL , we went to Glamis, 4x4ing on a Military base in a convoy!!! I do however know the risks, we were in an accident, but no injuries for either party. That is my fear, as is everyone's I'm sure, I am very perceptive and alert while driving my 4 wheeler. Being the Daughter of a Stuntman and a Step Daughter to a WW2 Vet, I have been raised well. Be careful everyone, I will see you out there!!!
