    it is a CDL...not CDL's.....

    and nope, never heard of him. frankly, what can he really do for you except get a fee from you then just recommend a school..?? hell even we can do that, and do it for free too...

    where do you live,

    what is your current employment situation,

    what is your driving record like,

    what (if any) criminal record do you have,

    how many jobs have you held in the past 5 years

    how old are you

    are there any truck driver schools in your state, or nearby that you can go to

    if you can answer these questions (and more later) we can help you..

    A Community college is the only way to go. Companies recruit from most of them.

    With that much driving tme under your belt just go to the local DMV get a CDL book and study it for a few days.
    Call around to the companies looking for drivers and find one willing to let you use a truck for the road test so you can go to work.

    if you can afford to take the written tests on your own and get the permit, then borrow a truck for the test, you may be good to go..however, you will need to verify your time behind the wheel in many job applications. (but maybe the oil field companies will take you..?)

    you could also just go to a company and get training from them, then work for them for a period of time, usually 1 year....

    cost is everything too as you would know. so it comes down to what yu can afford to do. tying yourself into a contract job, may not be good, or the best thing to ever hit you...

    I agree study and take the written test.Then borrow or rent a truck for the road test.The local test facillity actually will provide a truck for a fee.It is a duce and a half with trailer and automatic trans,LOL but they say it qualifies.
