Getting back on the road after time off
by: Hervy

After two years off of the road, it will be pretty hard to get hired. Your best chance is to find a small trucking company local to you.

If you want to skip all of the fishing, you will have to go back to truck driving school. You may find a refresher course since you have driven before.

If you are unemployed right now, you might check with local workforce or employment security to see if they have a program that will pay for you to go to truck driving school.

Good luck
