    issue with automatic only is that when your truck breaks down and you need to drive another, will another automatic be available?

    So a question for those of you just starting with CFI. The recruiter I'm assigned to sent quite a greatly in depth email (which I loved! most companies barely want to communicate by email it seems) but it did list this: " Obtain your Class A permit in your state. You will need to test for your permit wherever you renew your driver license (DMV, DPS, DOR etc.) You may pick up a book to study there or you can download a CDL handbook for your state online-there are also great practice resources online. In most states your permit will consist of 3 parts: General Knowledge, Air Brakes, and Combination Vehicles." To my knowledge, CFI trains in MO and you have to get your CDL Permit in MO. Is that still correct? I'm in AL if that may matter. My current job has me working hours that don't line up with recruiting hours at CFI.

    Thanks!

    You have to start school with your permit from your state in your hand. When you finish school in Missouri, you will take the exam and get a Missouri cdl using the school as your address.

    Eventually you will need hazmat. Whenever you go home, transfer your cdl to your state, and take the hazmat at the same time.

    I hope this clarifies it for you...good luck.
