    Yes. School trains you to pass the CDL tests. Training teaches you real world trucking.

    School is only for the license. Mega carrier is so you can learn to drive

    I have a single digit account number as a vendor there. I remember when the place was gravel the building had one side and they threw the couches off into our pickup when we started our furniture business.

    Not bad people at all I sell their stuff cheaper than they do. Just know if you drag my mattress instead of carrying to the end of the trailer I will threaten to kick your ### and crawl up in the trailer. :D just a warning of the places you will be delivering.
