    Finally starting school tomorrow morning and hoping to be licensed before Christmas with time to spare. Been going back and forth on the trailer type I want to start with, but I'm going to have to bite the bullet and go with something soon.

    Started out leaning flatbed but my mind keeps drifting in the direction of reefer because it never stops and I want to run OTR as hard as safely possible starting out to learn the ropes. At the end of the day, many on these boards say that they hauled several different types of freight before finding their personal winner, so I realize this decision isn't etched in anything beyond staying someplace at least a year to "open the doors" so to speak.

    I'm guessing @Chinatown will likely chime in here...looking for a recommended reefer outfit that hires newbies straight out of CDL school in New England?

    Appreciate the help as always!

    Dave

    Sorry to hijack, but it's there any definition of "approved school"?
    If you got your CDL through some means of training isn't it the same?
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    A few companies have a list of approved schools, but most don't care as long as it's a cdl school.

    What about through a mega?
    That's not really a school, right? But cdl in hand at the end.

    Mega schools are good and accepted by other companies.
