What are my chances of getting a job if I get my CDL through private lessons?

by Cindy

I can't afford an accredited trucking school. But, I do have a private instructor in my area ($85hr.,$225 truck rental for DMV testing). I've been doing some endless web searching about who to drive for (after getting my CDL) and they all seem to say the same thing...."after graduating an accredited school"..OR.."after graduating OUR school". What the heck? Will I even be able to get a job if I get my CDL through private lessons?

A tight budget might mean skipping trucking school but that will make it harder to get hired

Yeah, that's about it. You'll have a CDL, but no experience to get the job. You'll need to sign on with a company that has their own school. Jimmy
