Wanda C seeking advice for getting back into trucking

by Wanda Carr
(Dallas Tx)

I am fairly a new driver.

I received my CDL in 07. I worked for 2 trucking co. and was terminated by both. I also worked in construction for two months.
My biggest problem, which is the most important part of driving is backing. I am very weak in backing.
Since 09 I have been driving a school bus. I am trying to get back into the industry.

I have filled out apps, talked to recruiters and no one is willing to hire me. I really understand.

While working with those two co. I had 3 inccidents with the first year of getting my CDL.
With one I hit a low bridge and had a trailer blowout with in 5 days of each other also got terminated.

With the other driving job I had a rollover, not speeding. Road ran out tire got on soft shoulder and rolled. I was terminated not due to the incident.

On the construction job I quit.
I want to drive, I know my safety record out the gate is blemished. So I am looking at becoming an OO with 1yr experience and no trucking experience in the last 1.5 years. Looking for any advice, to help conquer this delima.

Thanks for this website.
