In order to become a trucker, you need to know your options and weigh which options better fit you and your situation. I have written another article about CDL Training Schools and Trucking Compnaies that offer Free training. Here are some of the companies that I recommend to help you get your trucking career on the fast track.
CDL Schools I recommend and their locations.
American Truck training - This is by far my favorite CDL training school around. They have 4 locations in the US and offer extensive and professional traning for new students. They also have job placement assistance and the people seem to be down to earth and very knowledgale of the trucking profession.
Kansas City, MO - Phone: 888-235-7481 M-F 7:30am to 5pm. Classes start weekly and they also have classes on weekends for those who want to train part time.
Oklamhoma City, OK - Phone: same as above
Tulsa, OK - Phone: same as above
West Burlington, IA - Phone: same as above
If you live near one of these campuses, I highly recommend you train with them. They have financial aid available and many more options than most schools.
