    Hi I have had my CDL, went through school and worked for 8 years in the northeast, out west and Ohio. Has to stop due to family situation. Am a trucker at heart. Want to get back in business don't want to redo a school.

    Anyone have suggestions or know where I could get an 18 wheeler for a day to take the test in NC. Owner would need to have insurance and drive it to testing place to keep it legal.

    Excellent driver can get in and out of tight spots. Have also driven rigs with live animals.

    Any help or suggestions appreciated.

    Check truck rental places -- Ryder and Penske.

    That's probably going to be a tough one. Not many companies have trucks and/or drivers sitting around doing nothing and any O/O are out trying to make a living. Maybe find a company that needs a driver and would be willing to work with you. Good luck...

    Try Trans Tech in Newton NC. I rented truck from them 3 years ago. Think it was 250.00. They will give you road test themselves.

    Call some schools. Johnston county comm college has instructors who give the test on site. They might require refresher course. Possibly private schools would have less requirements.
