getting back into driving trucks

by Tommy
(Paris, TN)

I have over 15 yrs. otr experience, however, I have not driven in over 1 year. Can you point me in the right direction to some companies that would hire me without paying for any training. Seems like it's impossible to get on with any company since I haven't driven in so long. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. love your web site! Great place for REAL trucking info! Keep up the good work!

Ex drivers that want to get back into trucking
by: Hervy

Tommy I made this webpage specifically for guys like your with experience over the road and taking time off then being faced with trucking companies saying they want recent experience but no one will hire you to get it.

We all know that once your a driver for a couple of years there is not a lot you will forget about trucking so it's really silly to automatically turn ex drivers down. This is where you can list yourself as an Ex driver looking to get back into trucking and there is a link to this page from my Owner Operator page.

Any owner operators looking to give ex drivers a chance to get back on the road should at least check these guys out Ex drivers wanting to get back into trucking sign up here
