    I’m in my mid 40s, and I think I want to get my CDL and go over the road with a mega for a year, but afterwards I want to get Into LTL. I’m not worried about physical labor, but I have had a desk job my whole life. Is LTL a good idea for someone starting at my age?
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    I’m in Louisville, KY. I can pay for school, but I’m almost certain I want to go with a trucking company because I want the year over-the-road experience. I think that would be the best way to learn before trying to drive locally. No problem whatsoever paying my dues.
