    I'm trying to get in the trucking industry but I need a company that would cover all of the training and hotel expenses because I'm flat broke. To my understanding, I would have to get my CDL permit on my own via the DMV but they are all closed because of this pandemic. Are there any companies that will allow me to get the permit through them?

    Companies do not have the authority to issue a government document... Which is what the permit is.

    Cattleman 84 is correct. However, where are you located? Maybe @Chinatown can give you some leads on job opportunities.

    Once the DMV opens again you can go test for your permit. Just remember the free training usually means cheap pay as a driver. Some trucking companies have a whole setup for free training. They put drivers in rooms you have share with other new drivers. CR England had some old dump motel they put guys in. It looked really bad. They claimed it had a pool. It did, but it had green slim and had not been used in years.

    Some training companies may have something set up with the various DMV's to do the tests online.
    Call and ask each company you're interested in.
    Where is your location; we need to know the hiring area you live in for various companies.
    Most do hair follicle drug test these days.
