    Can anyone recommend any good trucking schools in the Middle Tennessee Area? I have my CLP, 1-Year DOT Medical Card (restricted to one year due to HBP), no tickets, and no criminal record. Should I go through company paid CDL training or go to my local TCAT (community college).

    Also, will having a 1-Year DOT Medical card due to mental health issue and HBP restrict me in terms of employment?

    Thanks

    Very difficult to be hired after admitting to mental health issues.

    Western Express in Nashville might hire you.

    TDI in Christiana, TN just slightly south of Murfreesboro, TN. 800 242-SEMI. It's next to Loves I-24 exit 89.

    Also, in Shelbyvile the state vocational tech school TCAT offers CDL school for about $2100. There may be a waiting list. ANY CDL SCHOOL is ok. It's just a course to pass state driving test. Find a company you want to work for before going to CDL school.

    Some TCAT (vo-tech) locations have CDL. I think one of the Nashville has CDL. Shelbyville TCAY has CDL.
