      I have a question that has maybe been asked a million times. I got a DUI in my personal car on Sept 11, 2011. I lost my Alabama CDL(of 12 yrs) for 1 year. I am able to get it back now but I’ve contacted probably 100 companies and not 1 will touch me. I have no other criminal history at all. In 1 yr’s time, I’m 8k behind on child support and close to being locked up by Alabama. Also close to sleeping under a bridge. All the result of 1 DUI. There was no accident by the way. Just sleeping drunk in the drivers seat with car running. Talledega County will not expunge it. I’ve sent emails to Al dept of pardons and paroles etc and nothing. Is there any hope?

      It’s going to be difficult, next to impossible due to insurance.

    Hi Allen:

    I have been a charter bus driver for three years. I have passed my CDL A , Haz Mat and tanker tests. I had five years of chemical experience with Dow Chemical, and 15 years of Haz Mat experience with the Dexter Corp.

    My first choice would be to transport gasses, to lower the center of gravity problem there is with liquids. My second choice would be to transport cars because of the high pay and great benefits they receive as a result of their strong union.

    I will be 55 years old this year and I would like to stream line my entry into the trucking industry. I will need to be trained to take the state driving test. Could you please help me get started with the right company or union?

    Ken

    I am getting ready to go to a CR England driving school on the 8th of Sept. I used to drive from UPS, but i was a delivery driver. i was injured in 2005 (not real bad, just cant move millions of boxes) any more. I have had a few other jobs since then, but always wanted to drive a rig. Any suggestions for me?

    Instead of the standard “starter companies” there are some very good
    companies who also train. Don’t know if they are accepting new students right now, due to the economy, but it’s worth a try to find out:

    Roehl Transport – http://www.goroehl.com/rdtc/overview.aspx
    Excellent Company

    Millis Transfer – http://www.mtidriving.com/
    Excellent Company

    Check these out Timothy . . . hopefully they are still accepting students. These are two very good companies that offer CDL training, and are not considered a “starter company.”

    If CR England is the only one who will take you . . . at least it
    will get you your CDL and hopefully they will work out for you. They
    could! No way of knowing . . . but I would check with Roehl and Millis to make sure they are not taking students. Good Luck!

    Check out listing of trucking companies at Quick Transport Solutions website. Even you can find job listing from trucking companies across US states.

    Good Luck.
