    Hey truckers, I had a question just recently got 2 speeding tickets on my way up to Missouri from New York to Prime Inc to start my trucking career I went to court got one dismissed but still stuck with one ticket over 20 Mph . Due to my ticket being 22 mph I can’t get into no trucking schools, I’ve lifer been waiting months just for everything to be crushed due to a simple mistake of my feelings getting to me as my life was finally gonna change as I get ready to start my career with Prime Inc. I just wanted to ask if I take a defense course take away the points & purchase my Cdl A on my own do you know if any trucking company will hire me ? Location is not a issue I’m just stuck to the conclusion I have to wait a year if I wanted to go back to a Cdl school. I’m 21 clean record until now, I have every Cdl endorsement.. please if anybody can help I will appreciate it.

    15 over can be a career killer. Insurance companies don’t like the risk. May have to wait 3 years..

    You have to protect your CDL, which means you make your decisions with that in the back of your mind. My advice is keep your driving record squeaky clean until you can get hired. Then start your career with someone other than Prime. Just my 2 cents

    Yeah, read Post #2
    You'll have to attend a cdl school out of your pocket, then find a job on Craigslist for Chicago 1099 companies.
    Let @pavrom be your guide!

    It all depends if you want to be a steering holder or truck driver . You can learn how to operate the truck with one of your friends and drive with him for 1-2 months and after buy your truck , open authority etc and start getting experience on your own dime ...you dont have to go to school if you decide to go this way , just pass the tests , get truck rented for testing and you have your cdl ....i went that route ...i had truck already at that time ( no need to rent , i was in truck repair business involved without even clue how to repair truck and what is what there ) , but i had no idea what truck is - its a weapon in wrong hands and you have to be extremely careful at the beginning ...but everything is possible
    If i start telling my first years stories this forum wont stop laughing for next week or so , but im glad im still here ...and surprisingly i like it :)
