    No, you didn't abandon the truck. What you should do is send a Qualcom message stating that you are resigning, then take a picture of the message for proof you resigned.

    If you're under a load that requires a team, that may be a problem. Many new drivers bail out with no warning and don't have a problem getting another job. Some just get out of the truck at a truck stop and hitchhike home leaving the trainer to figure it out.
    Either way, it's not the end of the world.

    None of the load requires a team, its all solo driving for this company.. they just put me in his truck for training and orientation for a couple of weeks.

    Did you sign a contract saying that the company was providing you with CDL schooling? Classroom and over the road training.

    If it was just for a couple weeks, I agree with @Chinatown
