    I have applied for Carolina Logistics and I was told by them that while they do not have a driving school at the moment, they are looking at opening one soon. They did say that they are hoping that it will open by the end of this month. I spoke to someone there about it .That person also told me that should I be hired by them after I go through school that I would be making 800 a week before taxes intially and after a certain period of time, I would go up to $1200 a week before taxes. I don't know if that is true or not, but with my current financial situation, I would take whatever I can get, provided that I am given a chance. Could anyone tell me what a decent pay for the average rookie would be? The person at Carolina did tell me that they do mainly coast to coast, specifically California or Washington State .

    Hello. I have some possibly good news. I have spoken to US Express and I was informed that I would be able to be hired by them after going to driving school. They would finance the entire thing, outside of my personal expenses such as food. If the school approves me, I may be leaving this coming Saturday. Fingers crossed.

    I sure will. I'm getting a list of references for the school now. My former probation officer said he would be willing to put in a good word for me.

    School update. I got the last piece of info they needed from me. The accident report from where I was rear ended back in August 2017. I was able to get my grubby mitts on the NC Highway Patrol Accident report and email it to the lady at the school. All I have to do now is wait for the approval from the school.

    Haha!!!!! You seem like you got a sense of humor. That's good. I just got a notification text saying that my school application been approved. Knowing my untrusting nature, I am calling the lady at the school first thing in the morning to get absolute confirmation. However, as of now, I am feeling increasingly confident.

    that was most likely FROM that lady...!!

    but yes, it's a good idea to confirm, then ask if there is ANYTHING ELSE she needs of you, just to let her know, you're an eager beaver.....

    Let her know that I am an eager beaver? If I may say, sir, my being an eager beaver is because I'm not gonna rest until I am completely confident that I will do good at the school and that I will be as safe a driver as I possibly can. Anyway, I was going to ask her that anyway, as well as making sure I have or can get my hands on all the documents I need before I go.
