    Got my CDL thru a non credit school. Was thinking about going to a credit school with a refresher course. Also been looking to buy a truck & trailer. And since I’m on parole, I cant leave Texas for now. Need advice on what to do or point me in the right direction.

    Those companies I listed won't be able to help you if you can't leave the state.
    You can try TransAm though; I think they have a dedicated run between Dallas and Houston where you don't leave the state. Call and ask about that run.

    Try Western Express and TransAm; maybe have something in Texas where you don't leave the state.

    Don't buy a truck until you price insurance. Can't even leave the lot with a truck without insurance.

    Some outfit will hire you though; usually a small trucking company. Knock on enough doors and you'll be hired.
     
    MG3 Thanks this.
