Hey I'm 18 I have cdl and I have $25,000. Should I just buy a truck and work for myself as owner operator?


I ask this because you have to be 21 to a be a truck driver.

No. Don't buy one yet.

If I were you Carlos, I would wait until I was 21 in order to go over the road.

Meanwhile you could work for a moving company as a helper and then driver. Once you get a truck you will already have a home.

Moving companies pay very well.
Hauling household or bed buggin
