    Seems an unusual career move but I’ve been doing LTL work in Houston the last 3 years after retiring from the Air Force this company offered me free training.

    But Im tired of moving trailers down city streets all day and have an itch to see the more of this beautiful country.

    Do OTR companies generally accept LTL drivers, or do they prefer OTR experience.

    Clean driving record, no criminal record. Can pass any and all road test and skills test since Houston is pretty much a truckers obstacle course.

    Don’t want to have to go out with a driver trainer.

    Yes, almost any company will hire you for OTR.
    Doubt you'll go with a trainer after orientation with a new company.
    Do you have endorsements?
