I have some experience (enough to fulfill the "2 years exp. in past five years" requirement), but my wife doesn't have a cdl. Just wondering if it's worth it for her to get a cdl in order to team? It's really a ha$sle to send her to cdl school, and the whole idea was to give teaming a go, but that won't happen if they all require experience. Otherwise, I'll keep doing solo with her as my passenger.
We just want to get a job where we drive between terminals back and forth. Doesn't necessarily have to be LTL. Actually that would probably be nicer with a 53ft van trailer than with doubles. If we can't find some sort of terminal to terminal gig teaming, than I think I'll just have to stay solo. For solo I'm not sure I could do otr anymore. Really not interested in getting pinged around the country anymore and not knowing how much money I will make with operations wasting my time and pay packages that always have you waiting for free. Not so adventurous anymore. Just want to know how much work I'll do and how much I'll get paid for it.
Willing to relocate obviously since we're homeless with no ties anywhere. Currently paper residents of Nashville.
Any Linehaul for Beginner Teams?

The sad truth here is....because of the spouse's lack of experience--you may not be able to start things off at what would be considered a "first pick" carrier.
To do team driving, with zero experience for the spouse (and....like you said...not necessarily LTL)....check out:
- Schneider National; or
- Covenant Transport

Dot Foods is building a new DC in Manchester, TN. They’ll pay for your wife’s CDL training. She’ll be put with a female trainer, until she gets up to speed. Then, you can run team, for them. It’d be DC > DC or DC > trailer swap. 53’ reefers and dry vans. Volvo VNL760. ~$120K per driver. You would be on a 24hr schedule for ~100hrs, then go back to your home DC, for your break.
