    Consider going to Prime. You will have a job that you were trained for and make some money during training.

    Does TN not have any CDL classes at community colleges or state vo tech schools?

    Georgia vo tech schools have an excellent 300 hour class that’s only $1,600

    And then you’re locked in to Prime

    Why would anyone want that?

    Best way to get a CDL is on your own which will allow you to get a job anywhere

    Only way I’d ever suggest someone going to a Mega carrier for training is if they don’t have money for school on their own and don’t need any $ for a few years after the Mega training and until they’re able to move to another carrier

    In today’s climate I would think that there’s a way to even get a grant for CDL school

    I’m looking at buying a big bunk truck and my wife wants to ride with so she said she would get her CDL in case we needed the extra hours to get from A to B

    She was given a full $6500 grant for the school she’s going to attend
     
    TNSquire Thanks this.
