Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

There are plenty of ways to go to truck driving school without begging for money from strangers. Check out Brett's list of company paid training: Company-Sponsored Training

Additionally, you can get loans from back to work programs, local job training programs, or even FAFSA if the program you go to is run by a community college (usually).

Asking for money here will likely yield nothing, and I don't encourage anyone to donate because it's unlikely the money will be used for what he claims. Not a great first post.

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.

Company-sponsored Training:

A Company-Sponsored Training Program is a school that is owned and operated by a trucking company.

The schooling often requires little or no money up front. Instead of paying up-front tuition you will sign an agreement to work for the company for a specified amount of time after graduation, usually around a year, at a slightly lower rate of pay in order to pay for the training.

If you choose to quit working for the company before your year is up, they will normally require you to pay back a prorated amount of money for the schooling. The amount you pay back will be comparable to what you would have paid if you went to an independently owned school.

Company-sponsored training can be an excellent way to get your career underway if you can't afford the tuition up front for private schooling.

Heck, a lot of us are in school as it is and don't have any spare money lol.

Also, there's the option of company sponsored training and the fact that I personally don't trust go fund me pages. How do you ensure that the money goes toward what the person is claiming as the goal?

Louie, it turns out that you don't need to borrow any money from strangers.

I will give you the money.

You see I had a rich uncle recently pass away who left me a very large sum of money. All I need from you is $500 to help me pay the lawyers fees and I will then reimburse you four times your money.

Please send the cash to:

Seriously though, if your serious there are a lot of ways to get cdl schooling.

Is this post for real??? You're coming into a website forum just FULL of people that have paid their way thru private school or did a easy 1 year contract for their licence and then have the audacity to fire back at people giving their honest opinions and recommendations?? Because you're not about to give a little one year commitment because you don't know if you'll like the job? My God I've seen some entitlement feelings from people before but this one takes the cake!!!

In most every case I wish people with misguided requests with a "good luck on your endeavors," but in this case I'll say: " don't let the door hit your ass on the way out!"

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

ROTFL Dude you can't be serious. Everyone who comes this forum are seeking advice about becoming a truck driver and you come asking for money. LMFAO. These guys are giving you advice how to become one and you throw it back in their face. Seriously. I know this is not a forum that judges people on their comments but dude this by far has got to be the most silliest thing I have ever heard in my 30 years of being on this earth. Every trucker here have paid their dues and the ones coming into trucking also have to pay their dues. And plus I think these guys girlfriends, wives, children, or mistresses LOL will appreciate you begging them for money. LMFAO. Get serious dude. If you want this you going to have to earn just like everyone else.
