Can You Get Your CDL for Under $500?


Many newcomers to the trucking industry understand that there is a way to receive the CDL without spending thousands of dollars for a truck driving school.  On tonight’s show, Truth About Trucking “LIVE”  Allen discusses the steps that people are taking to grab their CDL for under $500.  Is it the right thing to do?   Should you receive the CDL by bypassing CDL school training and taking “easier” steps? 

If you missed the live show you can hear it now, and find out what Allen thinks about these “bypassing” steps.



Next show will be Tuesday, October 28th at 8:00 PM Eastern Standard Time – “FREE CDL TRAINING” – Be sure to tune in!

Thanks to everyone for listening and your support of the show.
