Ex car hauler looking to get back on the iron horse. Car hauler or flat bed preferred.

I need to get back out there asap. I do not want or need to go thru a truck driving school. I have been in the oil and gas industry for the past 10 years. I have driven tractor trailers all during this time except for the past 2 years. In the oilfield I drove coil tubing units that weighed in excess of 200K. Permits were needed as well as escorts. I had one ticket from 2005 while over the road driving a car hauler. I missed a weigh station in dense fog at the Idaho Washington border. My most recent ticket was for disregarding a traffic control device in LaSalle Co. Texas. This happened in 2013. Before driving a car hauler, I did 6 months with JB Hunt. Thats about all I could handle with them. I've also driven tanker trucks for water hauling companies in East Texas. I more than likely will have to go through a company to get my medical card and P restriction taken off my license. I believe I can get my medical card myself but I am not 100% sure. If I need to go through a trucking company to get some experience under my belt, I can. Personally I know I do not need to go through any kind of school. I know I am a strong driver that keeps my doors shut and my foot on the floor. If I thought I could just go to a school for a short time and show a company that I am capable of clearing 3000 miles in good conditions, I would do that. I would just like for someone to give me a shot. I need a job desperately due to the oil and gas industry slowing down so much.
