    Does anyone have experience with this outfit by chance?

    They are located in Dallas.

    I'm down to three, maybe four options where I'm at and Continental is one. A couple of the others are C1 (which I have read bad things about) the other is North Texas Institute for Career Development which is basically Goodwill Inc.

    I've read good things about Crowder College in MO. but I'm not exactly sure how that works being a Texas resident.

    Any information is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    State residency matters not.

    The ROOSTER system is in place, and essentially, it allows a person from any state to test in any other state, and the test results will be forwarded to your home state, whereupon your license will be issued.
     
    Frank Burns Thanks this.

    Hey Dan, Thanks for the info. I'll look into this Rooster system.

    Weatherford College has a truck driving school in the west side of the metroplex.

    Yep, looked into them but they do not offer any lodging options. Not driving that far every day. If it was actually Weatherford it might be an option, but from what I have read it's actually closer to Mineral Wells.

    That's quite a haul from where I'm at.
     
    Dan.S Thanks this.

    You won’t find much...

    ROOSTER is the computer system mandated by the feds to be in place by 2014...or ‘15 in order to allow for this exact situation.


    49 CFR 389.73 is the regulation, IIRC.
     
    Frank Burns Thanks this.
