    And I have my MVR in front of me now. The only thing I see that may be hampering my efforts is where I was rear ended in 2017. I was not given a ticket for it because when I said I saw a motorcycle in front of me that evening and had to hit the brakes to keep from hitting it, the other driver that rear ended me said the same thing. BTW, aren't motorcycles supposed to have reflective tape to make them more visible?
     
    Lepton1 Thanks this.

    This time, I was given a different explanation. Did not have enough qualifications. Not enough qualifications for Driving School. DRIVING SCHOOL!!!!!!! WTH????? How can I not have enough qualifications for that? Can someone provide an answer for that? I thought that was what driving school was for. So I could get some basic qualifications. o_O
     
    Lepton1 Thanks this.

    I have two more places to hear from. If I don't get anything good from them, I'm getting my CDL license on my own and drive a log truck. It appears that it is all I am good for.

    While that is a true statement,MANY companies(most) that hire freshly minted CDL holders want to see some sort of certification/schooling from a legit driving school. Part of that reason is insurance,and part of that is some companies actually can get $$ from .gov for every new CDL holder they hire(provided they go thru certain training protocols).
    There are MANY companies that train in-house or use a 3rd party trainers to keep their trucks full of fresh meat........Keep pluggin!!
