    This is a long shot. I have been driving for over 10 years. 7+ verifiable. I have let me CDL go since 2018 so I will be needing to get it again. My wife has decided that she wants to get her CDL and team drive. I am very excited to do that. Just trying to figure out what companies are the best or willing to help with us both getting the CDL and a team job. I am experienced enough to shy away from England, swift, etc.... We are looking at paying for truck school for us both but we would be without any income at all if we went to a 4 week school. Any ideas? Thanks everyone.

    Which state do you live in?
    If your cdl expired, you might have it reinstated simply by getting a new physical and taking that to the DMV. Ask the DMV in your state what the time limits are on that.
    If you do this, you can get started right away and start getting a paycheck while your wife is in school. When she graduates, she can go on the truck with you.
    Are you in California?

    Schneider pays for private cdl school. I think the husband/wife train at the same time in the same truck.
    Training period is short, which is a big positive.

    CRST gets bad press, but that's mainly because of forced teaming. Two new drivers that never met before, teaming for 12 months rarely has a happy ending.
    Might be ok for husband/wife though. One cdl school is in Pomona, CA.

    If you pay for private cdl school, Freymiller is a good refrigerated company and can run teams there. If you get your cdl reinstated by getting an updated physical, Freymiller will hire you. Then your wife can go on the truck when she finishes cdl school.
    Freymiller hires new cdl school grads.
