    verifiable T/T driving experience

    What does "verifiable tractor trailer driving experience" mean? I am assuming a former employer that you drove for would be verifiable, but are they looking for drivers logs?? What??

    Yes, they are asking for previous employment information. You don't need to supply your logs, just an employer that can verify that you have been driving.

    Yeah, a pay stub works well for that too! I don't much care for employers like that.

    While I had my permit, I worked for a company driving with a cdl holder. Do you know if they would consider that "experience"? Or would it depend on the company hiring....

    Probably not, you would be driving with a trainer, not solo or teaming. It may be that you would be credited with experience at some places.

    Verifiable means different things. Many companies have passed into oblivion, the fact that you submitted to mandatory and random drug tests can be used to verify experience except that at my current company, anyone holding a valid CDL. even mechanics and shag drivers, has to submit to randoms, and many positions that are not driving mandate a pre-hire and random drug tests.

    The last random I had stated I was driving for my company.
