    Most CDL schools will finance the tuition and you could then use a companies tuition reimbursement plan to pay for most. This would be better than owing money to your employer. If something goes wrong at Central and you have to leave before your commitment is up, you are going to owe them a ton of money.

    I started with USX one year ago. It depends on how you do in Upgrading Test, whether you gotta team or not after training. I did fine and they just gave me a truck....so,I've been running solo right away.

    Ya this is the first I have heard of this too, what is an upgrade test??

    Also, didnt I read somewhere on here that some folks have only had to go thru a week with a trainer and were turned loose with a truck to run solo too??

    Thank you

    Your upgrade test happens after you have completed driving 150 hours with your trainer. There is a written test, you have to show that you can perform route planning, a simulator and a driving test that includes backing. Takes about two days. At the end of the upgrade you get assigned your truck

    it's a test of company policy, map reading/trip planning and a driving test
    your trainner will teach you this.

    the short trainning is for driver that have not been on the road recently
