  1. There are probably a lot of you that come here hoping to find information on Class A CDL training. Some of you may even want to know more about Class B CDL training. Well, I want you to know that there is a great article that talks about how to get the best CDL training and explains, in great detail, what Class A CDL training is, what you'll learn at truck driving school, how to choose a good trucking school, what to expect after you graduate, and more. The article goes in-depth about Class B CDL training as well. Hopefully, you'll be much wiser and more informed about CDL training after reading the article. I wish you lots of luck in your search for a good truck driving school!
  2. Thanks, Newbie. I found a great article that tells you the best trucking companies to work for.
  3. Great article. If anyone is searching for paid cdl training near me, that's the best place to find it.
  4. Hi, everyone. Can all the professional truck drivers on here tell me, from their own experience, what are the best trucking companies to work for? When I say "best" trucking companies to work for, I am talking about the pay (either weekly pay or mileage pay), benefits (medical, dental, 401(k), paid vacation, etc.), equipment driven (late-model?), and home time. Please tell me the name of the trucking companies and not just "this one trucking company I worked for...". Please tell me how long you worked for that trucking company or how long you have been working for that trucking company if you are still with them. What are the worst trucking companies you've worked for? Please tell me the names of the trucking companies, how long you worked for them, and why they were the worst. Thanks.
  5. For anyone thinking about becoming a truck driver and would like to know how much truck drivers make, here's a great article to read up on: How Much Do Truck Drivers Make?
  6. One question that is asked by many truck driving school graduates, students still in trucking school, and even those who are considering going to truck driving school is “How hard is it for an inexperienced driver to get hired by a trucking company?”. If you're looking to find the answer to this question, there's a great article called "Trucking Companies Hiring Inexperienced Drivers". The article explains in-depth what inexperienced drivers can do to increase their chances of getting hired by a reputable trucking company. At the end of the article, they show a comprehensive list of all the trucking companies currently hiring inexperienced drivers.
  7. Jsmith, were you able to find a good trucking company that would hire you?

  9. Bthomforde makes a great point. PTDI certified schools do hold themselves to the highest quality CDL training standards. I'm not going to leave another link because there is already a link in my previous post above but, Truck Driving Schools Info's directory of truck driving schools shows you which schools are PTDI certified. Just look for the schools that have a small cross symbol next to the name of the school.
  10. Evidently, there aren't any women truck drivers on this forum...
  11. I'm not sure you if you ended up pursuing a career in OTR truck driving or not, installer723, but if anyone else reading this thread is interested in finding a good truck driving school in their area, this website is a good place to start. Lots of valuable information on how to choose the best truck driving schools and they also include school ratings and reviews by former students.
  12. You can find all the information you need about obtaining your commercial learner's permit and commercial driver's license in whatever state you live in here. Just click on your state and you'll find all the info, forms, manuals, and DMV CDL test locations on one easy to read page. Good luck!
  13. Ah, yes. Thanks to the current shale oil boom in America, the price per barrel of crude oil continues to sink like the Exxon Valdez. The Saudis refuse to cut production to inflate the price because, at this point, they are just trying to hold on to the market share they have. Once the Keystone pipeline is finally set in place and Congress rolls back the crude oil export ban (IF they roll back the crude oil export ban), the Saudis and OPEC in general will really be screaming for mercy. The U.S. is on track to become the world's leading oil producer by the end of this year and I say "Amen!". For far too long, we have been at the mercy of OPEC and, more specifically, Saudi Aramco, and now, the tables have turned and the Middle East can get a taste of their own medicine! Do I sound just a little bit jaded? LOL.
  14. Fuel prices are coming down... finally! I don't know how long fuel prices will continue to come down but, the natural gas and shale oil boom in the United States is the main cause. Because of this, the U.S. is projected to become the largest oil producer in the world, even surpassing the Saudis, by the end of the year 2015. By the way, if you need to know where the cheapest diesel fuel is in your current area, just go to this website and use the cheap gas finder by typing in your zip code or city and state (on the left side of the webpage).
