    Couple of months before your 21st birthday, set up a start date with KLLM. They can probably get you into their school on your 21st birthday.
    In the meantime, don't get any traffic tickets. Tickets in a car can stop you from being hired by a trucking company.
    In trucking, a ticket for speeding 15 mph or over is considered reckless driving and it's almost impossible to get a trucking job with a recent ticket like that.

    Thought the hair follicle drug test goes back 90 days plus. A year is pretty long.

    They look back 90 days for urine test.
    Some look back 12 mos. for hair follicle.

    Stevens Transport does urine test, so there's a choice if one is 90 days clean.
    I don't know what Jim Palmer does; last I heard is urine test, but don't know that for a fact.
    Prime Inc. still does urine test.

    I think they all do. I just didn't know a hair test goes back a year. That's crazy

    That's probably a good idea though. The more selective they are. The more jobs available.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.
