    I assume you do have your CDL right... not sure if TMC helps you get cdls or not.... you can rent a tractor/trailer but itll be expensive.. they charge a deposit not sure how much it is... Can you not go back to TMC??

    Where is home?
    TMC didn't want to deal with keeping you around longer to take the road test again.
    All is not lost; we can help if we know where you live. You still need a cdl.

    Wilson Logistics does that; one week in classroom then 3 weeks OTR, then back to terminal for road test and cdl.
    From the website:
    'Here's how it works. We pay to bring you to our terminal in either Missoula, MT or Springfield, MO. We cover your lodging and meals for the first week while you’re at our terminal. You will earn your CDL permit and receive thorough training at our terminal the first week. After the first week we send you over-the-road for 2-3 weeks with a professional CDL instructor for real-world experience. You then return to our terminal to take your CDL exam for your Class A CDL.'
