    Hi there,
    Long story short, my parents decided to move to Europe for retirement. We are originally from Phoenix Arizona and I want to change careers to a job where I can visit them every two or three months and spend 10 to 15 days in Europe with them. Therefore my thought was to become a trucker and go OTR for 10 to 12 weeks and then take 10 to 15 days off in order to be in Europe with them. Does anybody know of companies in the southwest where you can get your CDL through their training program and they offer a 10 to 15 days home time after being OTR for 10 to 12 weeks? Thanks for your feedback.

    Easiest option is Move To Europe and Drive a Lorry. They're Shorter and the Roads are Smaller.

    Best bet is to work for a temp agency that hires cdl drivers.

    Might try a company cdl school first, then after the contract is fulfilled, switch to a temp agency.

    Danny Herman. 1 1/2 days off for every 7 on the road. 8 weeks out gets you 12 off. 10 weeks gets you 15. They don't have their own School but do hire from approved schools and will train you. Where do you live?
     
    FrenchyAz Thanks this.

    I wish these Companies would lose the "Up To" crap! $35,000 would be included in Up To $75,000!
