    I did it! I took the test at 9 AM, and had to wait until noon for my DMV to email me my results to say I passed!

    I am 20 years old so unfortunately, most CDL jobs require you to be at least 21, but I am not far from 21 for now (I turn 21 next month). I can't wait to quit my boring job at Barnes and Noble. Yesterday, I was very nervous about the test and since I failed the first three times, I thought of giving up (not getting my CDL) until I decided not to let my guard down and today, I passed.

    start applying NOW before the summer break, for a dock job. that way, you work the dock, and will be given the chance to maybe work the yard (to gain more backing experience) and in short time, move into a driving job, locally, the OTR, when you are 21...

    many have started this way,

    good luck, and congrats..!!!!

    I live in Massachusetts
    I didn't go to a CDL school, my uncle (who has a CDL A and has been a truck driver since the '80s) trained me.
    Yeah, Passenger and Tank Vehicle. Though I intend to get my Hazmat at age 21 (they're saying Hazmat will make you look very competitive).

    Most companies want to see a cdl school diploma.
    We'll find something though.
    Have you had any offers yet?
    Which town do you live in?

    OK, I didn't notice that at first; You have a CDL-B. Is that correct?
