I called the Schneider 800 number and finally got an "associate" woman who told me flat out they will not accept Connecticut residents in their CDL school out in Carlisle, PA. Something about not having testing agreements with CT DMV.
Frankly, this is BS. Schneider has a north east region, and I see orange trucks on I-84 every day. Where the heck do these drivers live? All in PA? I was sure I read somethng on Scneider's website about how easy it was to train in their school and go back to your home state for the final CDL exam and license, using a Schneider truck which they will provide. I feel lied to.
The lady said, "You'll have to find a CDL school in Connecticut." Not in a million years would I pay $4,000 to attend the local CDL mills.
