    Can anyone give me any advice on a company that might give me a chance? I have 2 preventable accidents while in training. 1 is for hitting a pillar with the trailer and 1 is for backing to sharp and braking the brackets of the Fin on the tractor. I didn't get a ticket for either. They were preventable with the company. I had been driving about a week and half with the first one and about 3 weeks with the second. I had not really been given any backing training. I was terminated but really want to find a company that will give me a chance and I will get some training on backing. Any help that can be given on any companies that I can try is greatly appreciated. Thank you

    It should have been revoked for for the rest of time, and you should be restricted to walking or riding a bus or taxi.

    Injuring 6 and killing one when it could have been prevented means you have no valid reason to be driving any kind of vehicle.

    Keep in mind the entire industry in trucking is dominated by insurance. THEY decide if the company can hire you or not. You are essentially unhireable. (I had trouble with those, but had a farm and dump truck to fall back on)

    Go to the oil field. I bet you can find a outfit that will take you, me and them at a drop of the hat.

    I have 1 year of driving and I'm a lease purchase driver with Schneider as of this year but a smaller company back in 2019 recorded a preventable accident on my dac even when the police report and the insurance company both said I wasn't at fault what can I do? A lady merging in my lane traffic was congested and sideswiped the company truck how am I at fault even if she admitted she hit the truck. Looking for help here my record has been clean for the last 4 years
