    I spoke w/a cdl school recruiter today, she said Schneider starts everyone in dry van for 6 months before going tanker. Can anyone confirm/deny that?

    I heard Oakley transport in lake Wales FL was going to start hiring new drivers but I don't know if it's true or not.

    To clarify, are you suggesting getting my CDL then changing my address to the UPS Store box address?

    Dunno yet, my family is moving to AZ and I have a relative there now whose address I can use, so that's probably my first option. It also depends on which carrier I get hired on with and where they are based out of. If I can stay in IL and get my CDL address transferred (once I get my CDL) to a UPS store, I'd prefer to do that to keep things simple. Once I apply for and receiveTWIC card, can UPS store address be used for that too?

    Contact the DMV there and ask what will be required. Also, just go to cdl school in AZ and graduate with an AZ cdl with your relatives address.
