I need Assistance, Please.

by Joseph B. Smith
(Tallahassee, Fl. United States)

Hello, My name is Joseph Byron Smith. I have been studying for my CDLs for almost seven months and I can't seem to have any luck entering a school.

I've tried going out to Lively Technical College here in Tallahassee, Florida; and they tell me that I need to apply for a grant.

I've never applied for a grant before and I REALLY need some help. I'm working off and on as a landscaper to try to make ends meet but; eventually, the winter months will be coming and I want to be attending some school, somewhere.

I don't have the finances right now to attend; That's why I need assistance with what should I do before I'm laid off again.

Would you please help? I can be reached at (850) 224-9332 (Home), or (850) 459-6912 (Cell); Thanks!

Contact any of these schools and they can help you apply for loans/grants.

You can also go to the school you mentioned go to the financial assistance office and they can help you apply for the loan/ grants they do all the work for you. Just remember a loan you have to pay back a grant does not have to be paid back.


You could also try several companies that offer to train you. You can do a google search to find a list of trucking companies that train new drivers. Good luck.
