2 weeks ago, My great friend 58 years of age. 33 years doing straight truck ( Class B, Depends on which state you live ) Graduated a 5 week CLASS A course.
Hired on with a Local Union LTL Company. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. Pound the brick and mortars and network with friends/drivers on the street/ family ETC. OTR is not the only option.
In Tractor Trailer world he is new. Relevant to thread.
Yes from what they told me, but I live in Chicago so it may be different elsewhere

Hello all! I am a newb and am looking into Stevens. I just have a simple question. I was med retired after 9 years service in the navy for combat related post traumatic stress disorder. How will this effect me being able to become a driver. Please help me as I have experience driving tractor trailers in foreign and hostile countries and have been told I was a better driver than most of the equipment operators at my command. Trucking runs deep in my blood as I been around them my entire life. Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks
Don't think you should have any problems , good luck to you
Well you don't have to go over the road but if you really wont the trucking esperiance that you can take just about any where in the trucking business it is best to get at least a year or so over the road. Besides every good truck driver needs to have gone to fine places like --New York ,LA, Chicago and all the lower 48 states in all kinds of weather conditions. Not to mention Canada.

I recently went to school thru a company. Ran solo for a month. Found 2 small local trucking outfits that offered me a good paying job. One hauling mail and one doing a lot of work for UPS and BMW.
Both run 1 or 2yr old trucks and pull lease trailers. I'm a happy guy, home every night.
Maybe I got lucky, but it is possible. Rattle some doors and see who opens it. You might get lucky too.

I live in NJ, I will admit that.
my question is, can one just drive down to his or her local DMV and apply for a CDL with the appropriate funds?
