    Run your own drivers license check and see if your cdl is ok.

    get your physical b4 your license expires.
    then DMV will reinstated your license to class a.
    right now it's downgraded to a class c.
    but once your license expires, you will have to take the whole drivimg and written test again.
    my med card was expired for 2 yrs a d all I had to do is go get a dot physical and turn it in to dmv.

    If I had plenty of time off and didn’t need extra money, I’d be working on fishing and antique cars or something.

    I'm 29, might as well work when I can. Wouldn't mind paying my house off in 5-7 years either.

    I understand that.

    if you keep sniffing around you should be able to find something part time.
    Dunno about where you are, but the guys that drive the trucks that empty dumpsters at night make pretty good money where I live .

    that or construction , Dump trucks , roll offs or concrete trucks

    you Likely gotta stay local so you know you will be back to your regular job on time.
     
    Silidons Thanks this.

    Werner in Fontana(felony flats) may want to try them. Sure they have some local positions. They advertise for local part time help in Omaha NE on occasion. Sure inland empire wouldn’t be much different.
     
    Silidons Thanks this.

    I have worked a lot construction and we had one kid prob 17 he always took his lunch by that i mean while we all working he took a 30 min break didnt care boss didnt like that he was only part time. theres also buses idk city you live but must cities have a transit of some kind some are dont care if you even have a CDL. i drove dump trucks, water trucks those were class b but they also had class A funny part they paid the same for class A drivers as class b. you need thick skin work for construction companies one them I worked for I felt bad for any black people the company is very very racist to them Reece Albert inc.
    Wouldnt recommend anyone there just how they allow things.

    Yeah here in Southern California they just hire minimum wage security guards to do that, no way they would pay our overtime rate for that lol.

    And we don't make double time, only overtime for anything past your 84hr two week pay period.
