Getting a CDL with an amputated Left Foot.
Hi, my question involves interstate trucking with an amputated left foot. I live in California and I am trying to get into a Truck Driving School.
Unfortunately, the CDL driving school didn't even know about the SPE certification. I had to educate them on the subject. Good Lord!
I used to drive for Schneider National on a dedicated General Motors account out of Rancho Cucamonga until May of 2004. I was in a nasty motorcycle accident on my way home from work one night out on the 138. Of course, I wasn't able to return to my job within the allotted time and ended up eventually losing my CDL.
I have tried many other career paths since but haven't found anything that comes close to the satisfaction or income I had when driving. I loved that job! I want to get out on the road again... I thought a little background might help you guys understand my situation.
Does anyone on this sight have any experience with this type of barrier for a driver?
Thanks for your help.
