Yes. Pass your writtens, find a truck (or rent one) to take your road test, pass the road test, you have a cdl.
Bad news is nobody will hire you unless you have either...OTR experience, OR a 160 hour class graduation certificate.

I am looking for a company in the Southern California area who hires fresh graduates from Roadmaster Truckers School for either local or regional/dedicated routes (home every week, out 4-5 days a time). I know it's a shot in the dark because I start with Watkins Shepard in Montana orientation on the 28th this month. I might just have to do it, going to miss my daughter.
