Just got my permit and a few endorsements. Currently deciding the path I want to take before I choose a company/school, to get my CDL license.
My areas of interest are:
• Car Hauling
My goals are to make as much money as possible (work the hardest and longest hours).
I must choose one of the aforementioned to specialize in, so I'll be across multiple parts of the forum researching and asking questions.
This forum is excellent and I hope to learn a lot!
Hello! looking for a path️

@Chinatown thanks for your reply. The thing is... I live in NY but... I am willing to travel anywhere and can be anywhere, as needed quickly; for the above opportunities (just a plane flight or drive away).
I've a question regarding location: am I restricted to what I can do, based on my location? (only NY) Or for example, can I just move as needed?
Regarding car hauling, thanks for the advice. UAW is a teamsters union right? If so, then it would seem an unstable segment of transport to focus on, as you mentioned with unforeseeable strikes (kind of disappointing as I saw some post by member @Banker who was making a nice living from what I could see: caveat being, he's a solid veteran in his industry and I believe an O/O -maybe he can chime in when free)Coffey Thanks this.

Thank you very much for that information! I greatly appreciate it.
Lots of oil field jobs in PA, but don't know the requirements.
Also, do you think specialization will help any? Twic card, all endorsements etc... If not, is there anything you would suggest to make myself more marketable across all areas? (that might ease location requirements).
